Owl Thinking

We would like to introduce you to the different species of wood available for your engineered flooring. Obviously they all look different as our pictures show but we want to ensure you can make an informed choice; so go on, have a read!

Oak- Oak is usually recognisable by the straight and looping grain patterns and the knots in the wood, this will create a traditional and natural look in your home. Oak is certainly our customers most popular choice for engineered flooring, therefore, we stock an array of colours in a variety of different sizes and finishes to suit your requirements, whatever they are. All our oak is grown in Europe ensuring great quality and consistency with every board.

Walnut- Walnut is a rich dark wood which stands out due to its exclusive grain patterns, burrs and knots. Graining patterns of walnut can be linear or irregular, which will give your engineered flooring added diversity and prominence compared to other wood species. As its a naturally dark wood, walnut tends to become slightly lighter over time in direct sunlight.

Larch- Larch engineered flooring usually has good prominent grain patterns and is available in a surprising array of colours and finishes that will definitely enhance your room, whether it is a traditional or modern effect you are aiming for. Larch is incredibly tough so we would recommend it for rooms with a high amount of footfall. Also, larch is more affordable than some of its alternatives.

Acacia- Acacia is a very unique option for your engineered wood floor, as is evident in the pictures, acacia is recognisable by its light and dark multi-tone appearance and the knots in the wood. Acacia will certainly add a touch of chic design to your home and will create an interesting feature that will compliment any room.
