Wood flooring is a real asset to a home. Hailed by some as being the reason for faster sales and better sales prices, there is little doubt that wood flooring is a practical and stylish solution, no matter the make up of your household. With the right planning and maintenance, a wood floor will last a lifetime and many will grow in attractiveness as they age.
Wood flooring comes in two main types, solid and engineered. Solid wood flooring is the traditional wood flooring of choice, dating back hundreds of years and often found in castles and stately homes. As its name suggests, solid wood flooring is made from one single plank of the wood of your choice. Engineered wood flooring, on the other hand, is a more recent flooring development. An amalgamation of plywood, topped with a solid oak lamella or top layer, engineered wood flooring is a flooring option which is really growing in popularity.
Oak wood flooring is a great choice no matter whether you’re seeking to add charm to a traditional interior or to create a clean backdrop for a modern styling option. Ranging in colour from light greyish tones to darker honey colours, oak wood flooring is an attractive and hard wearing flooring option, chosen by many for its versatility. Oak wood flooring is available in a whole range of finishes and grades and is a highly affordable choice.
