  • Farmhouse Wood Flooring Gaining in Popularity

    Farmhouse finish wood flooring is gaining popularity all over the UK and for very good reason.  No matter whether homeowners are plumping for engineered or solid wood flooring, the grade that seems to be appealing to more and more people of late is rustic or farmhouse grade. There are essentially four grades of wood: prime, select, natural and rustic.  Prime grade wood flooring is highly uniform in its style and barely shows the grain of the wood or the presence of knots, so it looks very even across the surface.  This option has been really popular over the past few years because it fits really well with the clean, minimalist, designer look that has been so on trend.

Parquet flooring dates back to the 17th Century and was traditionally made from small blocks of wood that were cut by hand and laid, again by hand in a geometric pattern.  While herringbone wood flooring ‘blocks’ tend to be bigger than traditional parquet flooring the idea is much the same.

    Basket weave wood flooring has been a popular wood flooring option for decades.  A highly attractive alternative to straight wood flooring planks, it was out of vogue for a while but has now come back into interior focus with a vengeance.  Essentially produced using interweaving wood panels so they look like one ‘weaves’ under another, this way of creating wood flooring was done by hand when it first appeared.  Thankfully things have progressed and this unique, classy way of laying out a wood floor can be done much more easily today.
