This product boasts a graceful, easy-going colour that will complement many different tones. Part of the reason oak is so popular is its ability to blend and work with a variety of furnishings. This means you should have no concerns mixing up your interior, this stunning flooring will go with whatever you chose. We’d especially recommend mixing it with bold, statement colours to contrast nicely with it.
Wood flooring is incredible durable, withstanding years of heavy use and rooms that see high foot traffic. It will stand the test of time while still looking good as new, lasting for generations if cared for properly. It is also scratch, stain and water resistant, however we’d recommend cleaning up any spillages as soon as possible and avoid laying it in areas that may have more exposure to scratches. We trust in the durability of our products so much that we have thrown in a fantastic 25-year guarantee!
This product has been brushed, making not only for increased visual appeal and another dimension but an added texture. The lacquered finish makes for a glossy appeal, with further protection too. Homeowners go for this finish to really give the wow factor, it’ll give your interior a classical feel, perfect if traditional décor is your style! It has a V groove bevelled edge giving each plank more natural definition.
Wood flooring is also very easy to keep clean, with only needing a sweep and a mop, however we’d recommend purchasing special wooden floor cleaner to really get the most out of your investment, this is something we also sell! The good news wood flooring doesn’t catch dirt and debris unlike carpet, ideal if someone in your family has allergies.
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.Floating
Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.
Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.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.
