Introducing the Malham Pearl Oak, a smooth and stylish floor that will modernise your space in an instant. Light tones of cream and hues of brown lie between the natural imperfections of the wood, creating a calm and inviting space for you to wind down in.
Engineered oak is a fabulous alternative for those who want solid wood flooring but with tonnes of added benefits. It's highly durable, can withstand changes in temperature and has added stability. Not to mention, engineered oak is also suitable with underfloor heating which is perfect for those who have an open-plan kitchen/living space. Each board is finished with an invisible oil coating that enhances the wood’s natural look, showing the real beauty of the oak. Every plank is created with a click-joining method which makes the installation process a breeze! Perfect for all you DIY-ers out there!
The wide boards will also make it quicker and easier to fit, as well as adding a rustic look. Wide boards are perfect for large rooms to make them feel cosy and rustic.

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.
