Wood flooring is the perfect addition to any interior, no matter whether your overall look is traditional or modern. A truly versatile, hard wearing and practical solution, wood flooring is easy to maintain. Hailed by some as even making houses easier to sell, wood flooring is the perfect option for busy family homes and single-life living. Available in a whole plethora of species, colours, finishes and grades, it’s easy to see why wood flooring is such a popular option.
Wood flooring comes in two options, solid and engineered. Solid wood flooring, as the name suggests is made up from solid planks of wood cut from your chosen species and grade of timber. Engineered wood flooring on the other hand is an amalgamation of plywood, topped with a solid oak lamella or top layer. It is the addition of this top layer which makes engineered wood flooring look so much like solid wood. Not to be confused with laminate flooring, which is imitation wood, engineered wood flooring can be fitted over under floor heating.
Unfinished wood flooring, as the name suggests, is wood flooring which is supplied without any finish and is the perfect flooring solution for anyone seeking a blank canvas for their flooring project. If you are planning to invest in unfinished wood flooring, you will need to remember to budget for some sort of finish in your overall project costings. That said, there is no getting away from the fact that unfinished wood flooring allows you a great deal of flexibility.
