Tired of the dusty old carpet in your living room? Solid wood flooring is the perfect replacement.
Solid wood flooring not only looks beautiful when first installed but, as it is a natural product, it develops character overtime which adds to its effect. Compare this to a carpet which can lose colour overtime and begin to look worn out. ‘But the carpet keeps the room warm’, you may think. Solid wooden flooring does the same! Wooden floors are excellent insulators as they retain the warmth of a room. Fed up of endless housework? Installing wooden flooring removes the need to continually vacuum carpets to keep them dust free. Solid wooden floors are a lot easier to clean, leaving you with more spare time to sit back and relax. Less gathered dust is also beneficial for allergy sufferers.
There are three main types of solid wood flooring.
Tongue and grooved solid wood flooring is simple to install, with the tongue and grove interlocking the planks. The life of the floor depends on the size of the tongue, which typically comes as a standard 8mm.
Square edged solid wood flooring is an option that is more complicated to install and therefore is costlier to install, but will last a lifetime with the right care.
Parquet solid wood flooring is a popular option for those looking for a patterned wood floor and can be found in a range of colours and patterns.
The type of timber you choice will depend on the desired effect of your wood flooring.
A popular wooden floor choice is bamboo, as it is both durable and eco-friendly. However, oak is the hardest and most popular for it it’s appearance, as it offers a smooth and clean wood finish.
If you’re looking for a distinctive look, the dark and elegance finish of a walnut wood floor is the one for you, although can be quite expensive.
Pine, although softer than many timber choices, is a popular option for wood flooring due to it’s depth and beauty.
More contemporary style homes typically select light woods such as beech or maple, and elm is a rare but beautiful choice due to its unique grain.
