Create a light and airy feel to your home with our Painswick Ghoul Grand Oak. Featuring the same characteristics of our gorgeous Painswick Ghoul Oak but with a larger plank size.
This parquet flooring is part of our herringbone collection. The iconic herringbone design shows the planks arranged in a fishbone style and is traditionally linked with grand homes due to the luxurious and class feel it exudes. This level of class is now achieved in more modern and contemporary homes when herringbone flooring is installed.
This floor features a larger plank size which showcases the woods knots and imperfections beautifully with more focus giving the floor a greater deal of character and warmth. The floor has also been lightly brushed and finished with an invisible oil giving each individual plank more texture, charm and authenticity.
Engineered flooring doesn’t just look amazing but it’s extremely practical too. Due to the way it is constructed, engineered flooring is durable, strong and water resistant which is perfect for those with a busy lifestyle where spillages are fairly common. Engineered wood has the ability to withstand fluctuating temperatures which makes it the perfect option if you’re looking to install underfloor heating.
This flooring can be installed through three different ways. Floating floor nailed down or glued. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information
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.
