The Painswick Sienna Oak is a beautiful addition to our engineered wood range. In a stunning golden hue, this floor will be a great focal point in any home, especially in a living room. It would also make a wonderful choice for a dining room or kitchen, as engineered wood is not only sturdy but more resistant to spills and stains and able to withstand changes in temperature like underfloor heating.
An oiled finish gives a luscious appearance and ensures your engineered wood retains all the strength and durability of solid hardwood. The brushed texture of this flooring makes it ideal for busy family homes as it will hide any scratches your floor may incur over its long lifetime. If after a few years you decide to refinish your floors to return it to sparkling condition you’ll only have to sand and reoil it, making it incredibly low maintenance. The 6mm wear layer means you’ll be able to do this around 5 times, meaning the floor will last decades.
The Painswick Sienna floor comes in a length of 340mm and width of 70mm meaning the long, narrow boards will give the illusion of a bigger size in any room, accentuated by its light and rich hues. The subtle grandeur of the large herringbone design is sure to impress. In a rustic ABC grade, the knots and natural colour variation is highlighted beautifully.
This flooring comes with a tongue and groove fitting method meaning it is able to be installed either as a floating floor, or through gluing or nailing methods. See our detailed installation guides 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.
