Solid oak flooring offers "elegance and beauty"

Posted on 10th Mar 2011 @ 3:58 PM

Solid oak flooring brings "elegance and beauty" to a house.

This is according to French Timber Direct, which said it is also a durable material that can handle a lot of "foot traffic".

"With proper maintenance, cleaning and refurbishing, solid oak floors can last for many decades," the company observed.

Because of these qualities, it has been a popular choice with homeowners for a number of years.

The versatile wooden floor can look good in any room in a house, with the organisation observing it should always be "top of your list".

However, it is quite expensive and so some may go for engineered flooring as a compromise.

While this option will not offer the same kind of longevity, it is still a stylish alternative for homes, the firm said.

Joe Sikkema, an industry professional, recently told the Kalamazoo Gazette that oak is one of the three most popular types of hardwood flooring.
