Family friendly homes
Our range boasts the highest quality materials, manufactured to create installations that add light, space, and the outdoor living element that families desire. Long lasting, simple to use and easy to maintain, our products are perfect for those who want a luxury home without the hassle of constant cleaning and regular maintenance.
But it's not only Express products that make your home perfect for the family. There are several other methods that we recommend, helping to create a relaxed, comfortable and safe place for everyone.
Versatile, easy to install and with a reasonable price tag, laminate flooring is a great option for those wanting to create a more family friendly space. If your home plays host to children and animals – not to mention the occasional gathering – spillages are regular occurrences. Laminate flooring takes away the inconvenience of cleaning up after people (or pets!), and a simple wipe, sweep or vacuum will quickly remove any evidence of an accident. Laminate flooring is also naturally resistant to mould and bacteria, making your home a much safer and a healthier place.
Easy clean furniture
Choose furniture in materials that are durable and easy to clean. Leather and faux leather are obvious options, boasting wipe-clean properties. These fabrics are also available in a variety of colours, so you can choose a shade that fits into the scheme while being forgiving of stains, crumbs and pet hairs. For those who desire a softly textured fabric instead, choose microfiber or wool, which are resistant to pulls and snags and can be easily vacuumed. When it comes to tables, chairs and storage, look for rounded edges, stability, and materials that resist scratches and stains.
Open plan living
United rooms are ideal for family homes, creating a light and airy feel and improving your sense of space. Open plan living also promotes a sense of community despite differing activities – while you're cooking away in the kitchen space, you can continue conversations with (or keep an eye on!) those that are residing in the dining and living areas. An open plan home is perfect for those who love entertaining, and these social occasions will run much more smoothly with everyone united in one large space. What's more, there's also the added bonus of the house's value increasing!
