The first thing that comes to mind when considering the advantages of wood floor installation, is that it’s likely to be the first thing that guests notice when they visit your property!
There’s something timeless about having solid wood beneath your feet, and it can be adapted to any interior design.
Great choice of colours and effects
Good quality solid wood floors can be specified to match your personal preferences, lifestyle and décor. Depending on the type of wood used and the way it’s finished, you can vary the effect from antique flooring full of character, to warm and elegant glossy floors, or highly personalised coloured or parquet wood flooring. Perhaps a wood floor fitting in a herringbone or chevron design suits your tastes?
Strong and durable
Wood floors aren’t simply aesthetically pleasing, they’re also tough and long lasting. Quality engineered wood flooring, installed expertly, will last many years, even in areas of high footfall and in places where temperature and moisture levels can vary.
Solid wood floors have excellent energy efficiency values too, especially when used in conjunction with underfloor heating. They’re a great way to insulate your rooms, with the natural heat retention properties of wood.
If you buy from a reputable wood flooring supplies company, you’re also investing in highly eco-friendly flooring. Look for accreditation under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) standard, such as all wood flooring installed by Twenty SN.
Low maintenance floors
The list of benefits of wood floors must include how simple it is to keep them clean, and looking good!
All you need to do is gently brush off dirt and grit, and then wipe with a moist microfibre cloth or mop. There are also specialist wood cleaning products for more stubborn substances.
If your solid wood floor is damaged or worn by excessive time or circumstances, professional flooring contractors can restore it to its beautiful best, easily and for a manageable cost.
