We produce our own flooring in house, which gives us (and, of course, you) complete control over the finished product. You can choose from a huge selection of colours, design, plank size, and even request a mixture of styles. Combine your herringbone flooring with Chevron or Versailles panels to give your floor a more interesting look.
QUALITY SOURCED WOOD
Our wood is sourced through a heavily scrutinised supply chain that reaches all the way to the forest from which they come. Wood is inspected in the forests they come from, ensuring only the highest quality wood even gets into the sawmill. Where some of our competitors don’t even know where their materials come from, we regularly visit the factories to ensure that the wood we use continues to meet our rigorous standards.
Herringbone flooring would be an asset to your home. It’s a simple, classic design that enriches your surroundings and adds space and depth to your life. But are you aware that there are two very different types of bespoke, handmade herringbone flooring available?
YOUR CHOICE OF FINISH
Our selection of over 800 colours is not just a very large range, it is also unique to us. 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.
HERRINGBONE FLOORING Choice
Herringbone flooring would be an asset to your home. It’s a simple, classic design that enriches your surroundings and adds space and depth to your life.
We have two types of bespoke and handmade wood flooring available at Wood Flooring Ireland. Solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring. These two types of flooring can achieve exactly the same effect, at least from a visual point of view. When you see your new beautiful, herringbone flooring design in beautiful, rich oak with the tone of your own choice, you will probably find it difficult to tell the difference.
Advantages of SOLID WOODEN FLOORING
Solid timber wooden flooring is made from solid planks of wood. A solid oak floor is made of solid planks of oak. If you’re going for a herringbone design solid wooden floor, your solid oak herringbone planks will be seen on the surface. Underneath, they will be supported by solid oak. Solid oak is what you want and solid oak is what you will get. Nothing more and nothing less. Or if any other wood of your preference is available, your solid wood flooring can be of that type too. But we, at Wood Flooring Ireland, as a general rule, produce our solid wood flooring from the finest European oak. That’s our promise of quality to our valued customers.
Solid wooden flooring has been a popular choice with homeowners for centuries. The reason for that is because it is both attractive and long-lasting. A good solid wood floor can last for up to 100 years. It adds to the healthy atmosphere of a home as it doesn’t trap dust. It’s the best type of floor for allergy sufferers. Also, the acoustics of a house with properly-installed solid wood flooring is better. There are no vibrations or hollow sounds. It makes a house seem warm and homely.
ADVANTAGES OF ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING
As mentioned, an engineered wood floor can look exactly like a solid wooden floor. But there are distinct differences between the two. The construction of the two types of flooring is very different. While a solid wood floor consists of the same wood throughout, engineered wood flooring consists of a thin top layer of the wood. This is the layer that is seen on the floor surface. This layer is supported underneath by several layers of top-quality plywood. Although an engineered wood floor can be made to look exactly the same as a solid wooden floor, there is a considerable difference in the price of the two. The engineered wooden floor is a lot less expensive.
Apart from the expense, there are some interesting advantages of an engineered wood floor and the cost is only one of those. Here in Ireland, there are some things we have to bear in mind when making long-term decisions. Especially when we’re building the home of our dreams. It is good to remember that Irish family life can be very tough on floors. Keeping an immaculate home is the dream of everyone who loves their house, but our children and pets make that difficult. Engineered wood flooring is much easier to maintain in this respect.
Don’t forget how common it is to have underfloor heating in Ireland too. Engineered wood flooring is more resistant to fluctuations in temperature and humidity than solid wood flooring. This means your beautiful, herringbone design, bespoke, handmade engineered wooden flooring will complement that underfloor heating beautifully.
It’s a fact that wooden floors can be damaged by water. Water spillage, especially in bathrooms, can do tremendous damage to solid wooden floors. Engineered wood flooring is easier to repair if damage occurs, as the top layer can be sanded and re-finished if necessary.
