Year in a Review For Luxury Flooring
2019 has been a busy year for us here at Luxury Flooring. This year we’ve reached more customers than ever before, helping each and every single one achieve their dream floor. With this in mind, we’ve decided to take a look at some of our bestsellers of the year and explore exactly what makes them so popular.
If you’re familiar with us, you’ll know our specialty is solid and engineered wood, with an incredible range of products which come in so many different patterns, colours, wood types and thicknesses, so that you can choose exactly what it is you’re after! Not only does wood flooring have charming good looks, but is also incredibly hard wearing and practical. Don’t panic if stains and scratches do occur though, wood flooring can be sanded down a number of times to remove any damage. This shouldn’t usually be necessary for the first 15-20 years however! We do also offer some fantastic Luxury Vinyl Tiles and laminate choices too if you need something a little easier on the wallet.
Our most popular product in 2019 is the exquisite: ‘Brimham Aged Whisky Oak’ (SO1070) and it’s easy to see why! This product boasts a sophisticated, affluent dark look that will add tremendous luxury to your home. It would suit a clean-cut contemporary interior and work well with a traditional interior due to its rich look. It has been hand distressed to create a beautiful worn out look, complementing a rustic style interior due to the cracks, knots and scrapings. Once the planks have been through this intense distressing process, a lacquer finish is applied to the surface to protect it from any stains, however we’d always advise cleaning up anything as soon as possible. Solid wood flooring not only offers us astonishing durability to the trails of everyday life, but a beautifully stylish enhancement to our space. Oak is the most popular choice of wood for our floors, due to its easy-going and versatile appearance.
Our most popular engineered product is quite different, however. ‘Elgin Farmhouse Oak’ (EO2020) shows off a much more rustic appeal, something very on trend at the moment so it’s no surprise it’s such a hit with our customers! It comes with a stunning bevelled edge and a brushed finish, increasing its character and charm. After it’s brushed, oil is applied to the surface to give added protection as well as a slight desirable shine. Engineered wood can withstand the differing temperatures of underfloor heating, giving it at least one advantage over its solid counterpart!
In terms of parquet flooring, our most sought-after product this year was: ‘Painswick Garden Oak' (PAR218). Parquet wood really gives the ‘wow’ factor, making a grand statement in entrance halls, giving kitchens a stunning appearance and welcoming visitors into living spaces. The bevelled edges on this flooring adds depth and definition, making the room look larger. The oak wood adds atmosphere and the grains and knots present elegance, whereas the easy-going shade would complement many different colours.
Finally, many people opt for either laminate or vinyl as an alternative to wood flooring, with both options offering impressive practicality and a cheaper price tag. Both laminate and vinyl have been revolutionised to look so similar to real wood, that it’s almost impossible to tell them apart. This is shown by our best-selling vinyl: ‘Nest Rigid Core Golden Herringbone Luxury Vinyl Flooring’ (NESTV311). The gorgeous distressed look and honey tone makes it easy to see why it’s our most popular vinyl. Once more, the herringbone pattern makes for an affluent, deluxe appearance and we wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of our best sellers next year too, as the trend of herringbone LVT continues to grow.
Our best-selling laminate of 2019 is the: ‘Kronotex Robusto 12mm Harbour Oak Grey Laminate Flooring’ (LAM2080). Again, this stunning laminate shows off a very convincing imitation of real wood, through the distressed wood look with the cracks, grains and knots. Equally, the ashy grey presents us with the very sought-after rustic feel, as well as going with many different furnishings.
Our most popular samples include: ‘Painswick Glacier Oak’ (HE2021) Painswick Rabbit Oak (HE1196), and Painswick Champagne Oak (HE1194). All of them have the popular design of herringbone, as well as beautifully versatile tones and imperfections that flow charmingly throughout.
