  • Conservatory Flooring Solutions That Are Ready For Every Weather

    November 21st, 2022

    Whether you already have a conservatory or are looking to have one installed, it stands to reason that you want to make the best use of the new space possible. Whilst a big part of this is things like your choice of furniture and décor, it is important to consider the practical things too. For example, conservatory flooring that is fit for purpose, looks good and won’t suffer from sunlight damage is essential.

    With conservatories having a high level of sunlight, excessive UV exposure can be a risk to flooring and furniture in the room. With this in mind, it’s well worth considering the best flooring that can help your conservatory withstand the elements.

    Choosing your conservatory flooring

    When choosing a conservatory floor, some of the main options include the following:

    Hardwood flooring

    A hardwood floor can offer natural elegance, but the wood is susceptible to fading in a conservatory due to the high levels of UV exposure. Furthermore, a conservatory can have significant temperature fluctuations, which can cause hardwood floors to move and warp, so it is not recommended for this space.

    Laminate flooring

    Laminate planks can be cost-effective but do not suit the environmental fluctuations that can occur in a conservatory. Laminate does tend to fade in sun exposure and it doesn’t suit rooms of high humidity, like a conservatory. Laminate flooring may be water-resistant, but it is not waterproof and can degrade quickly in a room such as a conservatory.

    Vinyl flooring

    Vinyl flooring, such as LVTs, can offer the waterproof properties that you need from a conservatory floor. You can also find LVTs such as Pro-Tek™, which can suit underfloor heating. Underfloor heating can be essential if you want to use your conservatory all year round.

    Selecting your conservatory style

    Although you should think practically when it comes to choosing flooring for any room in your home, especially a conservatory, it makes sense that you will want something that looks good too.

    Home décor is a personal thing. Everyone has their own ideas as to what looks good and what they want in their home. For example, you could want your conservatory to look cosy and traditional with dark wood floors or stone tile, whereas someone else could prefer modern and minimalistic – there are no rights or wrongs.

    The good news is that Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring is made from high-quality vinyl in a range of colours, so whatever you are looking for, you can be sure there will be something to suit you and your conservatory style.  

    Why vinyl flooring is ideal for conservatories

    The right choice of vinyl flooring can make all the difference to your conservatory, so it’s important to shop around and ensure that you make the right choice for your needs. Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring is designed to have a luxurious appeal.

     

    It injects a real sense of style into just about any conservatory while also providing an option for underfloor heating and reducing the risk of warping and sunlight damage which can be common in conservatories.

    The benefits of Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring

    One of the main benefits of the Pro-Tek flooring range is the amount of choice on offer. So whether you prefer white flooring to make your conservatory feel like a haven of tranquillity or something more natural to blend in with your garden and the nature outside, we’re confident that we’ll have something that fits your chosen style.

    However, we also know that choosing Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring is about more than just colour and style. Our flooring is made to the highest standard because we believe that flooring should be both durable and strong so that you can feel confident it will stand the test of time.

    Our vinyl is super cushioned, which means that it is not only super comfortable to walk on but absorbs some of the sounds around the room too. This makes it an excellent choice for creating a peaceful conservatory, ideal for creating a room for respite, curling up with a book while enjoying the sunshine.

    Pro-Tek™ offers a vast collection of choices when choosing the right vinyl flooring with various colours, finishes and patterns. This means that you can choose the perfect finish for your conservatory, something that we know is very important. 

    Styling your conservatory

    Whilst we know that Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring is the perfect foundation for your conservatory, we also recognise that there are other elements that go into making this part of your home perfect. For example, you’re going to want the right type of furniture to complete the room.

    Make sure that this is something that you research and take your time over – after all, you’re not going to want to be replacing this after a few months. This extension on your home is the ideal way to make the most of the extra space in your home too; shop around for clever storage ideas so that you can store things in this room without it seeming overly cluttered.

    Things like sofas with built-in storage or coffee tables with storage underneath can make all the difference, especially in a calming space such as a conservatory.

    All the while, bear in mind that furniture can fade in the sunlight of a conservatory, so do be mindful that upholstery, for example, may fade.

    Creating a conservatory you love

    The last thing you want is a conservatory littered with problems and snagging issues, which is why starting with a solid, reliable floor that you can work up from is important. Pro-Tek™ conservatory flooring is durable and well-made, which means that you can feel confident it is going to get your conservatory off to the right start – and the rest of the creation is down to you and your personal style choices.
