|Joining Method||Tongue & Groove|
|Installation Method||Nailed or Glued Down|
Get ready to feel like you’re in the heart of Paris with our Painswick Luna Oak. Just imagine, beautiful herringbone sitting against porcelain white walls. It sounds like our idea of heaven.
The Luna Oak comes unfinished, so you’ll need to apply an oil or lacquer to protect the wood from damage. The great thing about unfinished wood is that you can stain it to the exact colour of your choice. If you have a specific vision in mind and have been struggling to find a floor in that colour, this floor might be the answer to your problems.
The Luna Oak’s narrow and long planks gives the herringbone an intricate look that helps to make your room look bigger. Plus, the 20mm thickness and 6mm wear layer means you’ll have this floor in your home forever with the option of sanding it down multiple times, but you shouldn’t need to do that for at least 8-10 years.
Engineered wood is perfect if you’re looking for a strong and durable floor. Each plank features a top layer of solid wood that’s backed with tough layers of timber. Engineered wood flooring can be fitted with underfloor heating too, perfect if you love a cosy space.

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. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
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.
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 recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
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.
