18mm Thick Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring is made from planks, or boards cut from single pieces of wood. Available in a whole host of qualities, thicknesses, widths and species, solid wood flooring is a really popular flooring choice. Warm to the touch and completely natural, solid wood flooring comes in a broad range of colours from off-whites to almost black. A long lasting and appealing flooring option, solid wood flooring is also easy to maintain.

When it comes to choosing the thickness of solid wood flooring which is most appropriate for your project, you’ll need to take into consideration (amongst other things) the wear and tear you anticipate; the number of times you’re likely to want to sand and re-finish your new floor during its lifetime and the type of subfloor you have. 18mm, or just under ¾ inch solid wood flooring is a popular choice of thickness of solid wood flooring because it has a reasonably thick “wear” layer; will stand up to pretty heavy traffic and can be laid over most types of subfloor.

The wear layer of solid wood floor is the term used to describe the amount of wood above the tongue and groove. It is the thickness of this part of the solid wood floorboard that determines how often you can sand and re-finish your floor. With the right care and attention, you should expect your solid wood flooring to last a lifetime. Choosing the right thickness of solid wood flooring is an important part of the decision-making process when installing a new floor and if you’re in any doubt, you should seek the advice of your flooring supplier.
