Oak will make your home look sophisticated thanks to the naturalistic colour. Many affluent homeowners opt for a shade such as this to enrich the value of their home, while still allowing their rooms to not be dingy or dark. Many people like flooring that doesn’t appear too shiny but still with the protection from stains and scratches. This is why lacquered matt is perfect if this is you. We’d recommend this finish if you’re looking for a more subtle, calm look.

Engineered flooring is also a good choice when you come to sell. Not only will it look attractive to potential buyers, but it will add tremendous value. A lot of people are moving towards underfloor heating, which is something engineered flooring will accommodate without issue, due to it being resistant to warping or shrinking under the heat.

Engineered flooring is extremely durable, however, lacquer has been created to preserve the floor's original exquisiteness. This clever method will prevent stains seeping into the wood if spillages occur, consequently, it's a suitable choice for bath, dining rooms and kitchens. Lacquering creates a film on top of the floor, meaning you can still enjoy the genuine wooden look without worry.

The brushed effect can disguise scratches, so if you have pets with sharp claws or children then this is a sensible option! However, if the worst does happen then the wear layer of 4mm means it can be sanded down up to three times. This would not need to be done for at least 15-20 years, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your investment will be worthwhile.

The elegant bevelled edges allows the floor to keep its naturalistic appeal while still enjoying the benefits of a protected finish. This edge means that the break between the planks is more distinct, so if you’re looking to add another dimension to your room then it is the fitting option.

The diagonal chevron planks are very fashionable; so, if you’re into the interior trends, this product will not disappoint. Again, this flooring is known as a classic grade which means that the natural variation of wood is preserved through the finish so you can enjoy the oak's original beauty.

If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:

Tongue and Groove vs Click

Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.

• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.

• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.

Floating

Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.

Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.

Fixing

Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.

Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
