Wood Flooring and Conservatories
If you recently added a conservatory to your home, you are probably mulling over the options open to you for your new flooring. Conservatories can be used during any time in the year and by having a stone floor it can be quite cold underfoot. However, by having hardwood flooring with underlay, your feet will not feel the chilly whilst you are enjoying the sunshine in your conservatory or watching your children play in your garden. Conservatories are great spaces for relaxing, enjoying some time with friends or even to use as an inspiring office or study.
By its very nature, a conservatory is normally constructed principally in glass on at least three sides (and quite often overhead as well), which means that part of its pleasure is that it can be a real sun trap. While being a suntrap is a huge plus for its owners, the fact that conservatories are real suntraps can pose real challenges when it comes to wood flooring. Why? Because suntraps mean high temperatures at certain times of day and (often) the lack of insulation offered by glass can mean that temperatures can drop dramatically overnight.
It is this fluctuation in temperature which poses the greatest problem for wood flooring rather than either the highs or the lows themselves. That said, choosing wood floor for your conservatory means that you need to make your flooring decisions just a tiny bit more carefully than you might in some of the other rooms in the home. Hardwood flooring would look perfect in your new conservatory and it would add a natural look in the latest addition to your home. Not only is it really easy to clean and maintain, but it looks fantastic too. Hardwood flooring comes in a range of different colours depending on the wood that you decide to go with. Whether you choose maple, oak or ash, you will not be disappointed with how amazing your new hardwood flooring looks.
In order to have a professional finish on your new hardwood flooring, hiring a hardwood flooring specialist to lay your new flooring will ensure that it looks spectacular and with a high quality finish.
