Benefits of Wood Flooring

Unlike other home decorations like carpets and curtains that can be easily changed, floors more permanent. One should, therefore, take time to select a flooring material that serves their needs best and on which they will be comfortable to live for a while. Below are some reasons most people choose solid wood flooring over other flooring types:

Benefits of Solid wood flooring

Authentic Feel and Look

In itself, wood has a natural warmth and beauty which makes a home feel accommodating. With polishing and styling, solid wood flooring can attain an elegant look and a sense of spaciousness that never goes out of style.

When properly installed, timber flooring will allow better acoustics with little to no vibrations or hollow sounds.

They are easy to install

Although the installation work will be handled by our specialists, you will appreciate the ease and speed at which solid wood flooring can be fitted. This can be especially useful if you are conducting renovations on your home and wish to complete the process and move back in as soon as possible. The wood used is specially milled to ensure an easy fit that is uniform and stable. Even if you were to do the renovation or installation by yourself, it wouldn’t feel like rocket science.

Available in a Range of Finishes

With solid wood flooring, you can turn your floor into a canvas of sorts with your own designs. The range of styles you can choose from include Versailles, Chevron, Herringbone, and Plank styles. These can also be blended as per the client’s preference. The range of styles, species, colours and finishes also makes it easier for one to select a design that is in harmony with the interior design of their home.

The colour experts at Wood Flooring Ireland have created a bank of 800+ colours from which you can select your favourite design like grey wood floor or white wood etc – you can get the look you want. The formulas are created and tested in-house and cannot be found elsewhere. If your desired colour or combination is not already in our catalogue, the experts can try and make it for you.

Wood is Strong and Durable

Solid wood flooring, if properly installed and maintained, can last for decades. Even for a home with children running around or furniture being dragged about, the floor will maintain its shine for a long time. Better yet, when friction causes the wood to lose its lustre, it can be easily restored by sanding.

Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

Wood flooring does not accumulate dust as much as tiled floors; which have electromagnetic forces. Therefore, routine vacuuming and mopping is all the maintenance you will need to keep your floor spic and span. This makes it more hygienic compared to the other flooring types.

Provides a healthy quality of indoor air

Unlike carpets, solid wood flooring does not have embossing, grout lines or fibres. These can trap animal dander, pollen, allergen or other particles that will compromise the quality of air. The proper finishing products such as eco-friendly oil that is Formaldehyde and VOC-free ensures that with proper ventilation, your indoor air supply will always be fresh.

Adds Value to Your Home

Wood flooring is a long-term investment that will increase the overall quality of your property. Later on, if you wish to sell the property, your home will be valued more. You could even get a return that is higher than the initial installation cost.

Solid hardwood floors are made from a single plank of wood while engineered wood flooring is made from layers of wood. The preference for which one is better depends on your considerations. While they can both achieve the same look, with solid wood you get the genuine wood all the way down while for engineered wood you get the real wood on top of a layer of plywood. This allows more stability and underfloor heat control can be fitted.

What is the difference between engineered wood floors and laminated floors?

Engineered wood floors are produced in layers of plywood with real wood in the top layer. Laminated floors are made from compressed fibreboard, covered with an imaged pattern, and then laminated on top with a plastic surface called melamine.
