Solid wood floors last a life time thanks to their incredible durability. Not only does it look stunning, but solid wood floor also attracts less allergens, dust and mould making it a hygienic flooring choice too. Additionally, solid wood floors are hard wearing making them perfect for high traffic areas and will be able to retain its stunning aesthetic. Because of it's natural state however, it is not recommended that you use a solid wood floor with underfloor heating as it is unable to expand and contract with such fluctuations in temperatures. As well as this, the parquet flooring is a huge trend this year and is currently the favourite among interior designers. This means that installing as parquet style floor in your home would help to instantly modernise and bring some life to your floor.
The micro bevelled edges on this flooring add depth and definition, meaning they make a room look larger but to a lesser degree than ordinary bevelled edges. The fact this floor is oak also adds atmosphere to a room - the grain and knots add elegance, whereas the shade fits in with modern dark and wooden décor.
The grade of this product is the ‘rustic’ grade. This means that certain planks will have more knots and natural imperfections - giving the product much more character.
This floor is brushed and lacquered. The brushing means there is a texture to the planks, bringing out their natural appearance much more - these also effectively hide scratches which is useful in busy or clumsy households with children or pets. The lacquer finish gives the timber ultimate protection and durability as well as providing it with a maintainable surface area, however as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible.
Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Gluing
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 and groove parquet flooring.2. Nailing
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. 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.
