Make a statement with our striking the Luxury Versailles collection using our beautiful La Roche Parlour Oak.
This product hosts a bespoke Versailles plank design which is known to give the wow-factor in any home. Due to its history, this style of flooring is often associated with grand and prestigious homes which means this floor is guaranteed to exude class and elegance in any room it is installed.
The innovation of Engineered Wood has allowed us to achieve that hardwood feel without the added maintenance. Engineered wood is strong, easy to maintain, and durable which means it has greater stability than solid wood and can handle fluctuations in temperature, all the while maintaining that real wood aesthetic.
The beautiful golden tones of the wood are showcased in this product perfectly. The wood is unfinished with a brushed surface which means the natural imperfections of the wood are exposed and the natural charm and character shines through. As the wood comes unfinished this gives you the opportunity to finish the wood exactly how you’d like.
This collection has been handpicked by our product specialists and features the highest quality of wood. This is why we offer a 25-year guarantee on our entire Versailles collection.
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.
