Engineered wood flooring is enormously durable, lasting for many years after installation. If the product does develop scratches and stains, then it can be sanded down up to three times.

The knots and grooves show a rustic, natural look. This is advantageous as the grooves can disguise scratches. Herringbone is on the flooring trend so you can rest assured you’ll remain in style.

Oak is often chosen due to its authentic and easy-going appearance. Why not complement this flooring by going for a colour theme of deep purple or darker blue for your furniture? The bright colours will really lift the flooring’s honey tone all while keeping the naturalistic premise.
If you’re familiar with flooring, you’ll know that engineered wood is highly resilient and practical, ideal for rooms with an abundant of foot traffic such as the kitchen or hallway. The stunning oiled finish makes this flooring extra durable, all while keeping its natural appearance. Although it can cope with some amounts of water, we’d advise mopping splashes or anything that may stain as quickly as possible.
Perhaps one of its best qualities is that it is able to withstand differing temperatures, meaning you can install under floor heating, something the modern day is seeing more of in its homes.

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.
