Types of Flooring We Install
Solid hardwood floors are classic and timeless. You can repeatedly refinish them to freshen them up, so they consistently look elegant and refined. You can also stain a hardwood floor any shade you choose, depending on your design choice. They feel authentic and luxurious and are also reasonably easy to maintain.
Laminate flooring has the advantage of being incredibly long-lasting, scratch-resistant, and low maintenance. In addition, it’s inexpensive and comes in a range of styles. There’s also the option of water-resistant laminate for your bathroom, as well as the possibility of installing it on top of underfloor heating.
Engineered Plank Wood
Engineered wood flooring looks like hardwood flooring but features additional stabilising layers. These make engineered wood flooring less vulnerable to environmental aggressors, such as moisture, and it’s also extra stable. This means less chance of movement and warping between boards.
We also offer a range of sustainably sourced hardwoods from renewable forests around the world. As sustainability and eco-awareness becomes an increasing priority for homeowners and business owners, we have adapted our services to allow customers to make environmentally friendly choices.

Bespoke Flooring Solutions FAQs
The type of wood flooring that’s best for your particular property will depend on the nature of the space. A kitchen, for example, will receive a lot of wear and tear, so you want durable hardwood such as oak, maple, cherry, walnut, or ash. Laminate wood is also a good choice.
In general, laminate flooring is more hard-wearing and scratch-resistant than wood floors. This makes it a fantastic option for areas of your home or business that receive a lot of foot traffic, such as hallways or reception areas.
When choosing wood flooring, you first need to pick a type of wood or laminate, followed by a finish. Woods like pine and beech are less expensive but less durable than hard-wearing but costly woods like oak and walnut. Laminate is an inexpensive alternative, while engineered wood flooring is extra stable and long-lasting.
The colour or finish you choose for your wood floor will depend on the room, including its size and intended purpose. Pale woods are a good choice for rooms that aren’t used often, as they can stain more easily. Dark wood floors feel very cosy and intimate. Meanwhile, light colours might be better for smaller rooms, helping them to feel more spacious and airier.
