Fall in love with our Painswick Wheat Oak. This product features an extra-large plank style guaranteed to make a statement in your home.
Featuring the sought-after herringbone plank design, this floor is often featured in grand homes which gives it a prestigious connotation. Herringbone is one of the most popular styles of parquet flooring due to the elegance and warmth it creates in a room making it one of the most exciting trends in recent years.
The larger plank size creates a greater focus on the natural beauty of the wood, showing off all the knots and imperfections that come with real wood flooring. This floor has been finished with an invisible oil which provides the same level of protection as a regular oil finish but remains transparent giving the flooring a beautiful, matte, unfinished appearance without compromising the protection of the wood.
Engineered wood has become a popular choice in recent years due to its high durability, strength and water resistance as well as its stunning real solid wood feel. It is perfect for rooms with an abundance of foot traffic, such as kitchens or hallways. It can also withstand different temperatures which means you can install underfloor heating without any worries.
This flooring can be installed two different ways - nailed or glued down. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above 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.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.
