Why solid oak flooring?

Oak is arguably one of the most versatile when it comes to different species of wood, with it available in the widest range of colours, grain patterns, and plank widths. Oak has a timeless, sophisticated look, making it ideal for any room, in any property, regardless of your interior style.

Lasting for long periods of time, usually around 20-30 years - some say oak gets better as it gets older, just like a fine wine - it’s a great option if you’re looking to buy a new floor in your ‘forever home’.

Should I go for solid or engineered oak?

That’s a decision which is purely down to you! However, we would advise you to consider where in your property your floor is going before making any decisions on solid or engineered wood.  

A solid wood floor is ideal for a lounge, which is often a room which needs to see warmth, which a hardwood product definitely gives. On the other hand, an engineered floor is perfect for areas where there is higher traffic, such as hallways.

Any of our staff would be more than happy to give you further advice either in store or over the phone, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to discuss your choice of flooring further.

What are the alternatives to solid oak?

An engineered oak board is clearly the most obvious choice when it comes to alternatives to solid oak. Engineered flooring is stronger and more durable due to the construction of the plank, making it a popular choice for hallways.

There is also the option to go down the laminate flooring route, which provides a more budget-friendly option, and is still available in an oak finish.
