Wood Flooring Advice for Busy Households

Wood Flooring | August 6, 2019
White Washed Oak Flooring

There’s no denying the effortless beauty and timeless charm of wood flooring. Whether a contemporary setting or a period property, oak flooring and timber flooring sit perfectly and offer a sophisticated addition to any home. However, solid wood floors take a lot of care and are prone to moving, warping and staining.

Thankfully, there are many alternatives to the solid timber, such as engineered wood flooring and wood effect porcelain tiles. Here we take a look at the benefits of both.

A wood flooring buyer’s guide

Engineered wood flooring is a perfect, hardwearing and cost-effective alternative to solid wood. It offers all the beauty of the real thing, without the complications that are often associated, like warping, staining, movement and expansion. Engineered oak flooring is also far easier to look after than natural timber.

Any area of high traffic can hugely benefit from engineered wood flooring, as it’s highly durable and will stay looking great even in the busiest of homes. With a fabulous selection of colours, effects and finishes, engineered oak is the perfect choice alongside any décor and can withstand high levels of footfall, spills and other demands of a busy family home.

If you opt for a brushed or satin finish, you can benefit from its forgiving nature when it comes to dust, dirt and marks. You can also achieve the look you want with a choice of longer and wider boards. Engineered oak also works well with underfloor heating, for a fabulously warm and cosy environment, and is sustainable and recyclable after use. Although engineered wood expands less with areas of changing temperature or humidity, it’s not suitable to be exposed to excessive moisture, such as in the bathroom or outside. Our selection includes light, antiqued, whitewashed, herringbone dark and aged, so you’ll be able to find the perfect wood flooring for your home.

Again, ideal for areas of high traffic, wood effect tiles are another practical and cost-effective alternative to real timber. Porcelain is a fabulous choice as it’s exceptionally low maintenance and hardwearing while being highly stylish.

Wood effect porcelain tiles bring the beauty of wood into any area of the home, and can even be used outside. Capturing the intricate detailing of the knots and grains, they are a wonderfully realistic and stunning choice, needing no maintenance other than a simple wash. Able to withstand moisture, porcelain tiles can be used in the bathroom and great heat conductors, making them perfect for use with underfloor heating.

Durable and highly realistic, our range of wood effect porcelain tiles offers everything from warm milk chocolate tones to dark and contemporary and bright whitewashed.
