Types of wood flooring producer we offer

Take a look at the various types of wood flooring we offer below:

Engineered wood flooring

An engineered wood flooring has three to four layers of wood that are glued together to create a thick plank that can be sanded and treated to restore its original finish once it becomes worn or damaged. This is available with an easy click and lock installation which will not require any adhesive to be glued into place.

You can lay the engineered wood flooring in your living room, dining room, bedroom or kitchen. It is best to avoid placing it in places with high humidity such as the bathroom since it is prone to changes caused by the room temperature.

Solid wood flooring

A solid wood flooring is made of a single piece of wood that can be sanded back to restore its original finish. It has a classic look that makes it perfect to show it off in hallways, living areas and guest rooms.

Reclaimed wood flooring

A reclaimed wood flooring is made of timber which you can often find in perfectly preserved floors of an old property. It is very durable and can be installed almost anywhere where moisture is not hugely present as it can cause the wood to swell and crack. Also, it can be painted or stained in any colour which can add an overall pleasing and aesthetic value.

Parquet flooring

Parquet flooring is made of wooden blocks or strips that are designed into a geometric pattern such as herringbone or basketweave. It can be installed in almost all parts of the house or building as long as humidity can be controlled or avoided as much as possible. Since it can create unique and interesting patterns, it is best to place them in the kitchen and living room.

Bamboo flooring

Bamboo flooring is made of grass rather than wood but it can form its unique grain pattern that can be made into durable and quality floorboards that look and feel similar to natural wood. It works well in almost all kinds of rooms since it can resist water.

Since bamboo grows fast, it is one of the most eco-friendly materials which can replenish every five years or more. It is also great for people with allergies since its surface can repel dust mites, specks of dust and pollen.

Wood-effect tiles

One of the most practical and cheapest types of wood flooring out there is the wood-effect tiles which combine the look of natural wood and the durability of tiles. It is waterproof and resistant to wear and tear so it won’t rot or warp and can be placed inside on your bathroom and kitchen floor.

In addition, wood-effect tiles are easy to maintain and clean. It is also available in a wide range of colours, styles and designs you can choose from.

Cork flooring

Cork flooring is an eco-friendly wood flooring that is made of raw materials which can be safely cut without harming the actual tree. It is made of the bark of the cork oak tree which can be regrown every 9-15 years. Once harvested, the corks are grounded and compressed to form into sheets of flooring bonded with resins.

Since cork has a soft surface that feels cosy underfoot, it is an ideal choice for children’s playrooms or bedrooms floors. It is also a great choice for people with allergies since its surface does not absorb dust or mites.

Our cork flooring is finished with a clear varnish that protects it against water, stains and damage. It can absorb sound and keep the room naturally warm throughout the year. Also, it is shock absorbent and durable too.

Oak flooring

We have two types of oak flooring: red oak and white oak flooring. The red oak flooring has a warmer colour since it has pink and red undertones while the white oak has cooler undertones. Both are great flooring options for any type of room.

Walnut flooring

Walnut flooring is one of the softest flooring options that boasts a rich brown colour that adds a luxurious feel to the room. Try not to install this in areas such as the dining room where chairs often slide back and forth since this flooring has a soft surface compared to other types of wood floorings.

Mahogany flooring

Mahogany is considered an exotic wood so it is a bit more expensive compared to other types of wood flooring. It has a wavy grain which gives off a vintage look, perfect for those with classic or retro interior home designs.

Maple flooring

Maple flooring is one of the hardest wood floorings in the market and is known for its durability and resistance to heavy impacts. It is a great choice for homes with pets or children since it does not require regular maintenance to be at its optimum shape.

Hickory flooring

Hickory flooring is known for its durability and minimal wear and tear. It is a perfect flooring choice for log cabins or those with rustic style homes due to its light brown colour and dramatic grain patterns.

Teak flooring

Teak flooring is a popular type of exotic wood flooring that is loved for its natural shine and durability. It looks great when applied with stain or varnish but it also looks good when left unfinished and lets it age naturally since it holds natural oils.

Wood flooring products FAQs

Take a look at some of our most asked questions about wood flooring products below. If you want to add other questions to this list, feel free to let us know about it so we can continue to add useful info about using our wood flooring products and ensure that every individual circumstance will be addressed.

Do you send free samples?

We send free samples of our wood flooring products to encourage our clients to see the product before ordering it. You won’t have to pay for anything and we will send up to 5 samples to assist with your selection. To speed up the delivery process, the samples will be small enough to be fitted in an A4 envelope. 

We also have a special standard box consisting of 20 free samples of various types of wooden flooring products for architects and interior designers. To request a sample, kindly reach out to us by filling out the form on our contact page. We will contact you as soon as possible.

Will the colour of the wood differ from the free samples you have sent?

Yes. The samples we will send are just the representation of the colour but since wood is a natural product, the share or colour variation and the tightness of the grains may vary.

What does an unfinished wood floor mean?

When the wood floor is labelled ‘unfinished’, it means there are no protective coatings applied to the boards. This lets you apply any products you wish to protect the wood or give it the colour you desire.

Can I use the wood planks on my wall?

You can fit our wood planks to your wall but you should double-check first for any building regulations on your room or on the area you are working on as well as the strength of the wall you are fitting them to.

Can I put wood flooring on top of my stone tiles?

Wood flooring can be fitted in any part of the building or home but since it is a natural product, it can react differently to stone tiles or man-made floorings. It is possible to install wood flooring on top of stone tiles provided that they are sound and free from excessive dirt and grease. 

It is best to contact us directly before the fitting to let our staff inspect the condition of your stone tiles first.

How should the wood floorings be stored before fitting?

If you have to wait for a few days or weeks before the wood floorings you have ordered will be fitted, you can store them in a place where they can be laid. Leave the boards inside their cartons and plastic wrap as much as possible to avoid any contact with moisture.
