Wood flooring is the perfect choice for anyone who’s looking to combine style with practicality. A highly popular choice, wood flooring comes in a whole range of options to suit all styles of interior, both modern and traditional. Wood flooring solutions include a choice of type: engineered or solid; as well as grade, colour, finish and species.
One of the initial decisions to make when you’re choosing wood flooring is whether engineered wood flooring or solid wood flooring would be more suitable for your project. Engineered wood flooring is made up of layers of plywood, which is topped by a solid oak lamella or top layer, whereas solid wood, as the name suggests, is made from your chosen grade and species of wood and that alone.
Fitting tongue and groove wood flooring is one of the flooring installation methods which offers least wastage. Available in engineered and solid wood flooring types, tongue and groove wood flooring is made of planks on which each of their four sides has a tongue or a groove. The idea is that the tongue of one plank fits into the groove of the next, making this a speedy and neat method of fitting. Tongue and groove wood flooring can either be secret nailed, glued down to a suitable sub floor or laid in a floating installation over an appropriate underlay with the edges glued together, the choice will depend upon your specific project.
