Posted on 31st Aug 2010 @ 4:43 PM

Families with teenage children need flooring which combines durability with beauty and the top choice for this is solid oak flooring.

That is according to architect Wil Tunnell, who told the Guardian that wear and tear is inevitable as children grow up, however, there are steps that couples can take to reduce the cost of this.

Among the measures he recommends is installing solid oak flooring, which ticks the right boxes in terms of both aesthetic appeal and strength.

"Choose durable, low-maintenance surfaces, such as rubber floors in kitchens and bathrooms and solid oak floors in living areas," Mr Tunnell told the newspaper.

Ramona Williams, of Rancho Cordova's Blue Valley Hardwood Floors, told the Sacramento Bee recently that while the flooring choices available to homeowners these days are greater than ever oak flooring is still the number one option for many homeowners.

In addition, there are a range of colours people can choose from when selecting this type of wooden floor.
