BESPOKE FLOORING

CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING FLOOR STYLES

The following are the four main styles chosen for our engineered wood flooring. Remember that you can mix and match, depending on what you envision for your home. If you are interested in other styles, do discuss your preferences with us.

Wood Flooring Ireland Plank

PLANK

The traditional plank style is very adjustable with various sizes. A wider style is reminiscent of an older, but a beautiful, traditional style. It may also make your room look bigger. On the other hand, a longer, narrower plank can also add depth to the room.

wood flooring Ireland chevron

CHEVRON

Chevron is a zigzag style of flooring, but is continuous. The pattern consists of short planks placed at an angle and meeting at a point. It’s easy to remember the difference between the herringbone and chevron pattern. It’s a repetitive pattern of the letter V.

wood flooring Ireland herringbone

HERRINGBONE

The herringbone pattern looks like, well, the bone of a herring – or any other fish, for that matter. This is not such a precise description because the pattern is a staggered zigzag. The short planks are cut very precisely in order for the staggering effect to work. Has an appealing appearance.

wood flooring Ireland versailles panel

VERSAILLES PANEL

The Versailles pattern expresses a classical beauty that originated in the Palace of Versailles. It provides much scope for individual design being produced in a number of patterns. The patterns are framed in square panels, which can be easily produced in engineered wood flooring.

UNIQUELY COLOURFUL

Our selection of colours is not just a very large range, it is also unique to us and we are always developing new shades and tones. We create our colours ourselves, using formulas and processes known only to the Wood Flooring Ireland family. If we don’t have the exact colour you desire for your herringbone flooring, we will try and create it for you, giving you something truly unique for your home in the process.

WHY ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING?

It is not surprising that engineered wood flooring has become the preferred choice of homeowners and in commercial premises that are searching for a special look that combines elegance and comfort durability and a floor that brings a touch of nature inside any home or business.

The great thing about the engineered wood flooring that you can buy today is that it looks just like real wood.  When engineered wood was first introduced, it was considered by many to be the poor relation to solid wood, but even its harshest critics can’t say the same today.  A high quality engineered wood floor from Wood Flooring Ireland will also add value to your home.

Apart from  its great looks,  one of the most significant advantages of engineered wood flooring over solid wood is the fact that it expands and contracts less than Solid Wood, this is due to the construction of engineered wood flooring.   this means is that it’s safe to lay in environments where solid wood would risk damage. In particular, kitchen and bathroom environments, where moisture levels and temperatures fluctuate enormously, the right engineered wood floor won’t even bat an eyelid.

Engineered wood flooring is made up of layers and layers of plywood that are bonded together before being topped off with a solid wood lamella or top layer. The manufacture of our engineered flooring means that they are incredibly tough and will stand up to heavy footfall in both domestic and commercial environments.

The number of times that engineered wood flooring can be sanded depends on the thickness of the lamella or top layer, there’s no getting away from the fact that our Engineered Wood Floors can be sanded and refinished during its lifetime.  Re sanding a floor enables you to bring the floor back to life when it’s looking tired. It is also a good way to get rid of surface staining or marking.even our thinnest engineered floor can be sanded several times , giving a lifespan of up to 50 years.

In the same way that solid wood flooring comes in a whole range of species and grades, engineered wood flooring has the same large range to choose from.  This means that you can achieve the look you want as well as choosing the best finish to suit your home . Different wood gradings mean that you can adapt your choice to suit your budget or the look of your customised floor.

The way wood flooring planks are made, because the base of the boards are made of plywood, the planks can be made a lot wider than solid wood flooring without sacrificing the stability of the floor What this means is that you can have less joints in your floor in a really large area.

Herringbone and Chevron styles are also available in Engineered Flooring. What this means is that you can buy boards that already have your desired finished style in place, allowing you to lay a parquet or chevron floor

Easy to work with and quick to lay, engineered wood flooring lends itself perfectly to both DIY and professional installation.  However we at Wood Flooring Ireland always recommend using a qualified Wood Floor Fitter for your installation.

BENEFITS OF ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING FROM WOOD FLOORING IRELAND

Once you make your decision to enhance your home with engineered wood floors, you’ll be pleased to hear about the benefits of implementing the project with Wood Flooring Ireland:

You design. We produce. Choose your own style of floor. You are not limited to one style. One idea you may want to consider is to mix and match different styles in a single colour. A full array of colours is available. Matching your floor with the colours of doorways, wall frames, picture frames, or furniture, can bring that final touch of completion to a room.

After years of researching forests and factories, we favour the use of European Oak from the best forests, to produce the top layer of your flooring.

Our top layer of European Oak makes up a large percentage of the layered flooring.

We produce all custom flooring in our factory in Cork, Ireland, starting off with the unfinished wood, and readying it for our experienced fitters to install in your home.

We have carefully selected floor oils and finishes that are environmentally friendly and not hazardous to the health of you or your loved ones. They are free of Formaldehyde and VOC.

FAQs

Solid wood floors, also known as hardwood floors, are produced from a slice of wood of a single tree. Engineered wood flooring, also known as semi-solid wood flooring, is built in layers. The top layer consists of quality wood that can be fashioned into a number of flooring patterns. The bottom layer is the foundation, and is composed of compressed plywood or unfinished solid wood.

Engineered wood flooring and solid wood flooring from an aesthetic point of view, they can result in the exact same look. With a solid wood floor, you benefit from the “genuine” article, all the way down. An engineered wood floor is built with solid wood, part of the way down, but its base provides the benefit of stability, endurance, and the option of underfloor heating and cooling.

The longevity of engineered wood flooring depends on a number of factors. Influencing factors are the thickness of the top layer, the hardness of the wood (Janka score), and the amount of traffic the flooring must sustain. Engineered wood flooring can last for 100 years!
