There's now going to be a series of three blogs on the different floors suitable for Part 1 lounges, Part 2 kitchens
and Part 3 bedrooms
. This is a blog, to show you samples of what some types of wood would look like in a finished room. It may give you a better idea and understanding of what you are looking for to enhance your house.
Part 1. THE LOUNGE
Living room décor plays a vital role in making a statement of your style. There are many wood types to choose and picking the right one to go with your lounge is an important decision. In order to get what you want, first do some research, would a dark floor suit your lounge, or a solid oak, or a laminate? Then when you have an idea, select one that is in accordance to your taste and style. And hopefully this will give you some idea of what a wood floor can do to make your home truly finished and beautiful.
Solid wood floors have many variants, but none greater than the actual species of wood floors available. The majority of solid wood floors sold are oak, although there is a plenty of choice available, including walnut, ash, maple, and many exotic species like merbau, jatoba, wenge, and tiger wood to name just a few.
With ease and convenience becoming increasingly important to consumers, prefinished solid wood floors are the most popular option when it comes to choosing a wood floor. The two main finishes to decide between are an oiled or lacquered finish. However there are many other finishing options to consider like brushed, hand-scraped, stained, distressed, and eco-oiled. Alternatively consider purchasing an unfinished solid wood floor and have it finished in a colour or finish of your choice once fitted.
SOME OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FLOORING WE DO:
With a Solid-engineered wood floor you get all the plus points which both solid wood floors and engineered wood floors bring individually. Solid-engineered wood floors
are often the solution when consumers cannot decide between solid and engineered wood flooring.
Solid wood floors are normally 18-20mm thick; therefore they can take years of wear, and the stresses of everyday life. They can also be sanded down and re-finished numerous times, which truly makes a solid wood floor a floor for life.
Fast becoming one of the most popular ranges that we offer, the old distressed and aged collection offers rustic, aged, stained, and distressed engineered wood floors at brilliant value for money. The boards range from 148mm to 189mm wide, and all have unique finishes that look great in period properties.
Engineered wood floors provide all the beauty and charm of a solid wood floor with excellent dimensional stability and versatility. Because the top layer of hardwood is attached to a layered ply base, this eliminates the expansion and contraction that a solid wood floor is prone to.
The highest quality of laminate wood flooring offers the look of a real wood floor, but a floor that is much easier to install, and which is considerably cheaper. Another great advantage of laminate wood flooring is that it is very durable, and extremely easy to clean & maintain.
