Create subtle sophistication in your home with our stunning Studley Almond Oak.
This floor is part of our engineered range. Engineered wood is fashioned from a plywood base and a hardwood top layer making it extremely durable, easier to maintain and allowing you to achieve a solid wood floor at a fraction of the price.
Our Almond Oak boasts neutral, beige tones which gives it a subtle, sophisticated feel with a modern edge. Lighter floors are known to visually enlarge a room as well as enhance your furniture and accent statement pieces which makes it the ideal choice for you.
The light tone of the floor showcases the rustic ABC grade of the wood beautifully. Each individual plank hosts a variety of unique knots and imperfections which is perfect if you’re looking for an authentic, timeless floor for your home.
One of the biggest benefits of installing engineered flooring is that it can withstand fluctuating temperatures meaning it is suitable for underfloor heating. Underfloor heating has becoming a desirable feature in modern homes adding warmth and value.
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. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
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.
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 suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
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.
