Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring is exactly that - flooring made out of planks of solid wood.  Each board is made from a piece of solid wood which is cut down to size.  The way in which the board is cut can vary from flat-sawn, the most frequently used style with a triangular grain, to rift-sawn where the material is divided up into quarters, and also flat-sawn, which gives a finish where the grain is horizontal. Once sawn, the material is put into a kiln for drying and then finished.

Solid wood flooring is seen as a great way to give your home a warm, rustic and natural feel.

Why choose Solid Wood Flooring?

Solid wood flooring, also known as hardwood flooring, gives your home a warm feel and a timeless look, no matter what your interior design tastes are!

Solid wood floors can be treated with a variety of finishes, which can give you a whole new world of flexibility in terms of appearance. Finished range from lacquered for a clean and glossy finish, to oiled and untreated to create a rustic, natural look in your property.

Along with versatility, hard wooden floors can also be resanded. This means that your floor can be as good as new for many years to come!

However, there’s no way to specify how long a solid wood floor will last, but it should last more than 20 years, with a little love and care!


Which species of wood is best?

There are various species of wood available, each with their quirks and features, and so it’s almost impossible to give a definitive answer on ‘the best’ one!  Oak is always one of the most popular options when it comes to solid wood flooring, but walnut and bamboo are also available.  Which one you choose is purely down to you!


What are the alternatives to solid wood flooring?

If it isn’t for you, or you’re looking for something which is a little more durable or water resistant, then you may want to consider Engineered wood flooring or Laminate as an option.
