  • Solid Wood 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. To give you a helping hand, we have provided some key advice around how the timber is treated, how to fit your flooring, and how to maintain the surface.

    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 species 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.

    Walnut is one of our most popular styles of wooden flooring which can help to add a distinctive tone to a room. Its dark appearance can vary is colour, which helps to create an original style that brings a warm atmosphere to any room in your home.

    You must 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. Any water spillages should be cleared up immediately, as moisture can cause the planks to buckle and warp.

    Solid wood flooring is incredibly easy to install and its tongue and groove system means that unwanted labour costs are not necessary. Start in one corner of your room and begin by inspecting your subfloor. Ensure that the surface is even and that no wooden floorboards are loose or creaking. Start laying the planks and leave a 15mm gap around the perimeter to ensure that the timber has enough room to expand. If you find that any planks are too large you may need to measure the distance and use a jigsaw to cut the piece to shape. Work from left to right and stagger each plank by approximately 6 inches. This ensures that the entire surface area has full stability.

    To maintain walnut flooring, you simply need to use a broom to remove any excess dirt. One of the main benefits of dark flooring is that it hides dust and is particularly easy to clean when necessary. Solid wood floors attract very little dust as they are non-electromagnetic in nature which helps to decrease the opportunity for allergies.

Overview

Walnut is one of our most popular styles of wooden flooring. With a variable dark appearance, it can add a distinctive tone to any room, and can help to create an original style with a rich, warm atmosphere in any home.

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.

As an alternative to solid wood flooring, be sure to take a look at our engineered wood flooring too.
