This exquisite Painswick Harbour Oak 125 x 600 x 15/4mm Unfinished herringbone flooring is sure to impress any guests to your home. Many of us opt for herringbone to give the wow factor, perfect to make a grand entrance in the hallway or an affluent look to the living room. The planks are arranged diagonally, which in turn presents charming character and really offers a majestic statement to your space.

If you’re not already sold on engineered herringbone, then you will be after you’ve heard about its practical benefits as well as aesthetics. The best thing about engineered wood is that it is compatible with under floor heating, something solid wood isn’t. More and more homeowners are installing this in their homes, so it will certainly help the selling value of your home when it is time to move on. Not only this, but it feels warm and comforting under foot, ideal for those frosty winter days!

Wood flooring is one of the most hard-wearing materials available for flooring. It lasts for many years after installation, standing the test of time and heavy domestic use while still looking as good as the day it was installed. This makes it popular in rooms that experience high foot traffic such as the living room and hallway. Additionally, it is also scratch, stain and water resistant, however we’d recommend not laying it in areas that see high exposure to this as damage can occur. Don’t panic if the worst does happen, this product comes with an impressive thickness of 4mm, meaning it can be sanded down three times! This should not normally need to be done for the first 15-20 years, so you can only imagine how long these glorious floors can last! The practical benefits don’t stop there! Wood is very easy to clean, and does not hide dirt and debris like carpet does, ideal if you or someone you live with has allergies.

This product presents an ABC grade, meaning the wood’s natural imperfections are preserved but not over stressed. This means it will suit all sorts of interior themes and colours. The beautiful knots and grains give this product an enchanting character and naturalistic premise.

This wood comes unfinished, so we would recommend having in mind what finish you are wanting to apply before purchasing it. The best thing about this is that you get the freedom of choosing exactly which finish you want, but don’t lay it down as it is. We trust in the durability of our products so much that we are also giving you a brilliant 25-year guarantee!

Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.

  1. 1. Floating Floor
  2. In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue & groove parquet flooring but isn't suitable for any type of click-fit boards.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
