Once you have a conservatory built you can’t wait to start using it! You may want it to be a dining room, a separate sitting area, or a room for the kids to go and play in whilst you have some adult time! But before any of this can happen, you need to get the interior of the conservatory decorated, and one of the bigger decisions that you need to make is the type of flooring that you will have in there.
When you are making this decision, firstly take into account how you foresee the room being used, both now and in the future. It is worth bearing in mind too, that a conservatory tends to back onto a garden, so if you are going to be having people and pets coming in and out through the conservatory, where they might bring mud in with them as well as other garden detritus, you will want a floor that is easy to clean.
Most people tend to go for a vinyl floor, or something like this engineered wood flooring for a conservatory for this very reason! However, if you like the look and feel of a carpet, and don’t mind the odd carpet clean up job, there is certainly nothing to stop you from having it if that is what you want.
However, if you plan to use underfloor heating to keep the room warm in the winter, carpet is probably best avoided, as it doesn’t tend to work as well with underfloor heating as other flooring materials do.
