Do you love the elegant and authentic look of real wood flooring? Then our Painswick Coffee Oak is the perfect floor for you. One of the newest additions to our Painswick collection, this dark and sophisticated herringbone floor will breathe life into any space it is laid in.
The dark tones enhance the natural knots and grains and the brushed texture of each plank, allowing the wood’s natural features to shine through. Many homeowners also opt for dark flooring because of its ability to disguise dirt and signs of wear.
This product comes in a gorgeous herringbone arrangement that will open up your space and make any room appear larger. What’s more, herringbone never goes out of style, so if you’re looking for a flooring that will keep its charm and appeal for many years to come, then this is the floor for you.
The oiled finish combined with the durable construction provides great protection against all kinds of wear and tear. We’d recommend installing this floor in areas that see a high amount of foot traffic, such as the hallway or the kitchen. This engineered product is also equipped with a 3mm wear layer, meaning that it can be sanded down in the unlikely event that damage does occur. However, this shouldn’t be necessary for the first 15-20 years after installation.
This flooring can be installed in two different ways: nailed or glued down. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information.
The longevity of real wood is hard to beat, which is why we’ve given this product a 25-year guarantee.
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.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.
