  • Lino Flooring vs. Wood Flooring - How the Two Compare

        Lino, the term commonly used to describe linoleum is a floor covering that’s made from a whole host of renewable ingredients. Often confused with vinyl flooring, lino is actually quite different in its make-up. The main thing that vinyl and lino have in common is that they come in a single sheet and are known for being very pliable – which means that they restore their shape quickly. Lino flooring has seen a bit of a rise in demand recently and some clients are asking us about how lino flooring and wood flooring compare. So, in this article we’d like to explore the 5 key points that help people make their decision when it comes to choosing the right floor for their project. We’ve done this so that hopefully, if you’ ... READ MORE >

  • Matt Oak Flooring Keeps The Natural Beauty Of The Wood

      Lacquered oak flooring is recognised as one of the toughest and most resistant flooring options available, however, until recently lacquered finishes have meant an end look that has a slight shine.

  • Oiled Solid Oak Flooring Retains Maximum Natural Charm

        If you’re one of the many people who are looking for what is arguably THE most natural looking floor for your home, then this article is for you. At Wood and Beyond, we know how much you all love wood, and we know that solid wood is an option that’s gaining more and more attention once again.

  • 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. You can find our full white range here. But in this article we want to ... READ MORE >

  • 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 >
