Even though it’s still only summer time, some of our clients are already thinking ahead when planning their wood flooring projects. Although in the summer months, it’s tempting to choose a colour or style of floor that makes you feel cool when the sun is hot, it’s also worth thinking about those winter months when temperatures will have changed.
While you don’t want your floor to scream out winter-time all year round, making the right choices can mean the difference between having to turn your heating up a few degrees and enjoying the notion that your room is warmer than it actually is.
Colours definitely affect how warm or how cool we feel, and the colour of wood flooring you choose will impact on that. But feeling warm is also a feeling of being welcome. Warm wood flooring gives you both a warm temperature boost when you need it and makes you feel at home – like a big cuddly jumper!
Here are some great warm wood flooring styles that are undeniably warm, both in their coziness and in their welcoming character:
Rustic and Natural grades
Rustic and natural grade woods are known for their charming surfaces. With lots of character and variety in the wood, they give an immediate feeling of warmth and homeliness. When you choose this grade of wood you also needn’t feel as if you’re wary of being yourself in your home for fear of causing damage to the floor. This natural engineered oak flooring that’s been UV lacquered won’t just stand up to a whole lot of wear and tear, it also has a great warmth to it too. Reminiscent of warm honey, this one will leave you happy no matter the season or the temperature – inside or out.
Once again, herringbone flooring is a real old-school look that has a warm, welcoming and homely feel to it. Although in certain settings it can look quite formal, with the right furnishings this option can look almost bohemian, demonstrating confident styling at the same time as oozing class and charm.

A floor that’s as impressive as it is fast to fit and cost effective, if you’re not familiar with this style of flooring it’s well worth checking out.
