  • Wide Solid Oak Flooring Available Now

      Solid oak flooring has enjoyed a real increase in popularity recently. Having lost out for a while faced with the competition put up by good quality engineered oak flooring, solid oak looks to be once more claiming its rightful place in the market. So right now, solid oak flooring is in big demand, and so is wide oak flooring. Wide oak flooring has a really classy and stylish look to it. But the thing with wide boards is that you get a whole lot fewer per tree than you do with narrow boards. When put that way it sounds obvious, but the fact is that narrow boards can be produced from the wood left over after a tree has already been used to maximum effect. Wide boards on the other hand call for a wider section of nice looking oak, w ... READ MORE >

  • Prussian White Wood Flooring For Contemporary Look

      Prussian white is a term that’s being used a lot right now to describe floors that are almost icy white. Prussia, that was a historical German state and stretched into Poland is associated with stories of kings and royalty. It’s also a corner of Europe that gets pretty cold in winter time, which is probably where the term Prussian white comes from. Think icy streets, snowy hillsides and you’ll get the drift. At Wood and Beyond, we have a really broad selection of white flooring because we know that not everyone wants white, white flooring; but we’re proud to say that we have a great stock of what could be termed Prussian white wood flooring nonetheless.

  • Exploring Nordic and Scandinavian Style wood flooring

      When you think Nordic and Scandinavian style, you typically think mountain lodges, blonde wood and plenty of it. The light, bright interior styling we associate with this part of the world is characteristic of everyone from designer Josef Frank through to Ikea and is a great way to give your home a fresh, clean feel. When it comes to wood flooring that fits this styling, what you need to be thinking of are light blonde oaks, white-washed boards and oiled finishes. In other words, with this look there’s nothing bright and shouty and there’s certainly nothing shiny. A great style to mix with relaxed and comfy furnishings, washed out colour palettes and plenty of soft sheepskin, this really is a warm and cosy look for the winter ... READ MORE >

  • Fit Oak Tongue And Groove Floorboards For Minimal Waste

      Oak tongue and groove floorboards are a great way to minimise waste when you’re either flooring a room or house for the first time or re-flooring. Tongue and groove flooring isn’t by any stretch of the imagination a new concept, but it’s an option that sometimes gets ignored today in favour of click systems, and that’s a real shame. A system which sees the tongue – the protruding part of one plank, fit neatly into the groove – the cut out part of the next plank, tongue and groove is a really efficient choice when it comes to wood flooring. It also means that if your floor does develop gaps at any point in the future, they’ll be somewhat disguised and have less chance of developing draughts – which is always good ne ... READ MORE >
