Where to use solid walnut flooring

Walnut flooring is at its very best in dry areas of the home, such as living rooms, bedrooms or dining areas. It's important to bear in mind that solid flooring is not well suited to areas of the home in which moisture is present, or below ground level, such as basements, cellars and bathrooms. 

Advantages of choosing walnut flooring

Aside from its exquisite look, there are a number of great reasons why walnut flooring would work in your home.

Rather importantly, solid wood flooring is incredibly easy to install, and its tongue and groove system means that you can try installing it yourself before arranging someone else to do it for you at an extra cost. 

Once you've fitted the flooring, it's also reassuring to know that it's very easy to maintain too - you simply need to use a broom to remove any excess dirt. What's more, you might find that opting for a darker wood like walnut helps disguise any dust - though remember, solid wood floors attract very little dust as they are non-electromagnetic in nature. Ideal for homes with allergy sufferers! 

Engineered walnut flooring vs. solid walnut flooring

One of the main differences between solid wood and engineered wood is that the former is made up of one single piece of timber that is machine-cut to size rather than composed of several varieties of timber. 

The thickness of the planks can vary dependent on the wood type and style, but solid wood is considered to be one of the most environmentally-friendly types of wooden floor. Once the material is sourced, the timber is dried in a kiln and left for approximately one month. This relieves the wood of any moisture that could potentially cause warping. 

Engineered walnut flooring comprises only a top layer of walnut, which sits on boards made from other materials. 

Alternatives to solid walnut flooring

If you are planning to invest in a solid wood floor, you may be weighing up which style would best suit your home. Walnut is a definite statement in terms of colour, but there are softer options available, like solid oak flooring.
