Give your home a light and breezy makeover with the Painswick Ivory Oak. This gorgeous herringbone floor will transform your home into the calming sanctuary you’ve always dreamed of. Soft hues of grey run through this floor by adding charm and charisma to your home. We can’t think of anything better!
The narrow planks in the Ivory Oak will make your space feel bigger, perfect for adding depth to your chosen room. The Ivory Oak is one of a kind. The white tones will brighten up any room of your home, while the herringbone pattern will give your space the ultra-modern look.
The Ivory Oak is brushed and oiled to perfection. The oiled finish not only keeps the natural look of the oak but also makes it resistant to stains and spills. If you have kids and pets, the brushed surface will help hide any scratches and dents. Each plank is crafted with an A&B, tongue & groove joining method, so you need to separate the planks into two different piles for left-handed and right-handed joining boards. Lay this floor over underfloor heating for a warm and cosy space.

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.
