If you’re planning to re-decorate your home, it’s important to choose wall, ceiling and flooring products that are practical as well as appealing to look at. Renovating your home provides a great opportunity to identify areas to improve, whether it’s the carpet that harbours dust and pet hair, the bathroom tiles that require rigorous cleaning to prevent mould from accumulating, or the beamed ceiling full of cobwebs. In this post, we’re highlighting some of the low-maintenance products for your new home interior:
For The Bathroom
The bathroom or wet room is probably the room in your home that requires the most cleaning, but there are ways to make the cleaning process quicker, whilst improving the appearance of your bathroom at the same time.
WATERPROOF WALL PANELS make an excellent alternative to ceramic wall tiles and are perfect for bathrooms and wet rooms. The wipe-clean surface means there is nowhere for dirt and mould to hide, so you don’t have to worry about scrubbing grout or using mould spray on your walls. Not only are waterproof wall panels easier to care for, they also come in a range of attractive designs, including wood and marble effect:
There are number of flooring solutions out there that are ideal for bathrooms, one of which is SAFETY FLOORING or SHEET VINYL. The smooth surface of sheet vinyl makes cleaning so much easier, and there’s even products available that are specially designed for use in bathrooms and come with a slip-resistant coating. Sheet vinyl won’t become water damaged and comes in many designs including wood and block colours:
LUXURY VINYL TILES are also ideal for bathrooms as they’re completely water-resistant and many are anti-slip. With luxury vinyl tiles, you can recreate the look of hardwood, stone or marble at a fraction of the cost and without the drawbacks of using real wood or stone in wet areas:
Bathroom ceilings need to be able to withstand moisture and humidity, which is where traditional materials such as paint have their drawbacks. Whilst painted ceilings can become mouldy or start to flake, CEILING PANELS are specially designed to withstand a damp environment with minimal cleaning required. ALTRO WHITEROCK Ceilings are ideal for bathrooms and are hygienic as well as low maintenance.
For The Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it needs to have appeal. The interior products you choose can make or break the appearance of your kitchen, so it’s important to choose products that are both attractive and easy to maintain.
Your kitchen probably gets a lot of passing foot traffic daily, which is why it’s important to choose a floor that’s strong and resilient. LUXURY VINYL TILES are ideal for kitchens, as they can withstand heavy foot traffic and dropped objects without becoming damaged or worn. They’re also water-resistant, meaning spillages aren’t a problem. There’s plenty of designs to choose from to suit your style and decor:

For The Living Room
The living room is, arguably, the place where we spend most of our time. Spend less time cleaning and more time spending time with your family by making smart interior choices.
If you want to make a big impression, start with the floor. If you’re tired of your high-maintenance carpet or worn hard floor, consider replacing it with a new solution such as HARDWOOD, LAMINATE or LUXURY VINYL. In terms of practicality, LUXURY VINYL TILES are probably the best flooring choice for your home. Easy to clean, difficult to damage and resistant to water, Luxury Vinyl is a very low maintenance flooring type. You can create the look of hardwood, marble or stone and even combine different looks to create a unique DESIGN FLOOR:
Whilst paint and wallpaper are more traditional choices when it comes to decorating your walls, there are solutions available which are easier to maintain and bring a unique twist to your decor. DECORATIVE WALL PANELS are one way to create a striking feature wall without wallpaper or paint, and come with the added benefit of not having to plaster your existing wall. Unlike paint and wallpaper, your walls don’t have to be perfectly smooth for wall panels to be applied. In fact, you can forget plasterboard altogether and opt for a modern solution such as CLICWALL®:
If your ceiling is looking a little tired, or you want a more practical alternative to your existing beams, check out our range of CEILING PANELS. Not only are ceiling panels more practical than plasterboard, you can also make your ceiling a striking or subtle focal point with patterned panels including wood:
For The Bedroom
Many of the solutions mentioned above for living rooms can also be applied to bedrooms, with LUXURY VINYL TILES being a particularly favourable alternative to other types of flooring as it’s warmer underfoot than other hard floors (no-one wants to get out of a warm bed and step onto a cold floor!), but easier to maintain than carpet:
