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. This is not something you will need to do for at least 15-20 years so that it will stay impressive for a long time. We also offer a generous 25 year guarantee!

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. Homeowners often use it as a wow factor due to it’s classical look, making it a popular choice for hallways.

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. This makes it is a good choice for boiler rooms or conservatories, which can see hotter temperatures as opposed to other rooms.

The micro bevelled edges produce a stunning v shape, something that has proved very popular with homeowners this year. The diagonal pattern is discreet, assuring to keep your room looking calm but also adding more character than perhaps a plain floor would. The honey essence of this floor is sure to go well with any theme in your room, if that’s a dark burgundy or light blue, meaning that if your interior taste changes, then this floor will adapt to it nicely.

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. 1. Floating Floor
  2. 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.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. 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.
