If adding style is on your priority list this year, then you need the Painswick Sandal Oak. Blended with pale sand and light ivory, this smooth, herringbone floor is perfect for creating a light and airy space.
The great thing about invisible oil is that it shows the natural beauty of the oak’s original features. It also protects the wood from scratches, stains and spills. So, if you love a natural floor, the Sandal Oak is the one for you.
Want to make your home look bigger? The Sandal Oak’s narrow and long planks will create the illusion of a bigger space and help open up your room.
If you need a floor that’s going to last you a long time, choose engineered wood. It’s strong, durable and still features a beautiful layer of solid wood. As this floor has a 20mm thickness and 6mm wear layer, it means you’re guaranteed a floor that will last you decades. You have the option of sanding it down, but you won’t need to for at least 8-10 years. The Sandal Oak is also compatible with underfloor heating, which is a bonus if you love having toasty toes.

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.
