Spring has finally sprung and if you’re anything like us you’ll be turning your attention to those parts of the house that have been sorely neglected in winter. If you’re lucky enough to have a conservatory or garden room, clean those windows and plump up those sofa cushions and your summer snug, home office or entertaining space is good to go.

It may be that your garden room needs more than a few decorative tweaks to look its best, and one of the quickest way to refresh a room (and add value to your house into the bargain) is to replace a shabby or damaged floor with a fresh new one. When it comes to rooms that lead directly to the outside, however, there are some types of flooring that won’t cut it. Carpet, for obvious reasons. Wood, too, will suffer in an outdoor room, as the extreme temperature fluctuations can cause it to contracting and expand, while stone can feel cold and be slippery when wet – not ideal if the kids (or you) are constantly running in and out of the garden.

Leoline cushion vinyl is designed to stand up to all kinds of punishment, and that’s what makes it such a fantastic fit for conservatories – as well as utility rooms, hallways and high traffic areas in general. It’s completely waterproof, so you don’t need to worry about leaks or wet footprints, and when dirt inevitably gets traipsed in from the garden, a mop dampened with water is all you need to get rid of it. And with over 160 different designs on offer, with textured surfaces for a realistic look and feel, you can achieve your dream look – whether that’s quartz flagstones, ceramic tiles or brushed oak floorboards – with none of the drawbacks.

For the ultimate in barefoot summer living, check out our prestige Supercomforts range (which includes the gorgeous Bellagio, shown here). At 4.2mm thick it’s been designed with softness in mind, and as well as excellent thermal insulation, its compact backing offers an impressive 21 decibels of noise reduction – ideal if you want your conservatory to be a peaceful retreat. And with a 10-year guarantee, you’ll get peace of mind, too. Now kick off those flip-flops and relax…
