Wooden flooring

14/11/2013

Dark wood floorWooden flooring has a classic and timeless feel that is appropriate in traditional and contemporary homes alike. Let’s take a look at the following:

  • Solid wood
  • Engineered wood

Solid wood flooring is made from a single piece of wood, it’s often cheaper than engineered wood floors, but the installation costs are usually higher, so when budgeting do remember to factor this cost in. It can be sanded back multiple times and either left unfinished, oiled or lacquered. It would be an asset in any house, and ages wonderfully.

Engineered wood flooring consists of layers of wood which are pressed and glued together to the desired thickness. Not all engineered flooring is equal: the thicker the top layer, the more expensive, but they can be refinished in the future, unlike thinner, cheaper versions. So if your floor is going to be down for a long time, or is in a high traffic area, do consider how well it will age.

The downside with a wooden floor is that it doesn’t have the same cosy feel as a carpet, so you may want to add a rug just to finish it off. This can also add a luxurious feel to the room and is a practical interior design choice.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to
give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent
but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial
in its field. Awesome blog!

Thanks for your comment. I’m guessing you have lots of videos and images on your website as you supply laminate flooring. As you can probably see, this blog is quite new so we’re just getting into the habit of taking more pics as we’re working. Hopefully we’ll be able to post more images as time goes on.
