For fans of tradition and character, this Elgin Elk Engineered Wood flooring is the perfect option. Ideal for cottagecore decor or the rustic cabin look that is set to continue trending, this warm natural oak floor is guaranteed to delight. We recommend this Elgin product for living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens as the durability of engineered wood makes it ideal for busy homes and is suitable for underfloor heating (perfect for achieving that cosy hygge feeling).
With a smooth surface and natural oiled finish, this floor introduces a touch of simple elegance. This finish makes maintenance simple and easy; just finish the floor with a fresh coat of oil when needed. This also gives you flexibility as you are able to choose the desired finish each time, meaning your floor with a 6mm wear layer will last you decades.
Each plank is 220 x 20mm with fixed lengths of 2200mm, perfect for creating the illusion of size. Additionally, the larger plank size will showcase the rustic grade of the wood, with its character and distinctive look. These knots and patterns are complemented by the bevelled edge for an authentic overall appearance.
These Elgin Elk floors are equipped with a tongue and groove joining method and can be installed either through floating, nailing or being glued down. See our detailed installation guides for more information.
Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.
With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue & groove parquet flooring but isn't recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
