Solid Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is a natural 100% wood product with each board coming from just one piece of solid wood which is cut down to the desired size, typically between 18 and 25 centimetres. The style of the cut of the wood can vary from flat-sawn, which is the most recognised style with a triangular grain, to quarter-sawn where the material is divided up into quarters, then rift-sawn, which gives a finish where the grain is horizontal. After the cutting process is complete, the material is put into a kiln for drying and then finished. Solid wood flooring is seen as a great way to give your home or office a warm, rustic and natural feel.
Why Solid Wood Flooring?
Solid wood is incredibly durable, and will last a lifetime. Real wood flooring also attracts less dust, allergens, and mould than other materials. This improves the indoor air quality of your home, helping you breathe easy.
Moreover, solid wood looks fantastic, and can add real character and individuality to your home. Homeowners can sand and refinish the surface of the boards, removing scratches, scuffs, and stains.
Which Wood Should I Choose?
With so many different species of wood available, choosing a particular type of wood for your solid wood floor can seem like a challenge. We are proud to offer a number of species, including oak, walnut, and acacia.
Oak is a popular choice for its classic style and traditional look. On the other hand, walnut can offer depth and sophistication to your interior. Finally, acacia is adventurous, exotic, and very unique.
How Do I Lay my Solid Wood Floor?
Installing real wood flooring is not a complex task, however, if you do have any doubts, we recommend hiring a professional. If you do want to install it yourself, it is best to fix the planks to the subfloor. This will prevent the flooring from lifting and buckling.
More information can be found on our blog, advice centre, and downloadable installation guides.
