Wood flooring is a versatile and easy to maintain flooring option, whatever the type of your interior. Wood provides a warm and organic backdrop against which you can build your own design and is your floors option being sought by an increasing number of people. Extremely simple to maintain, tough wearing and available in a huge range of species, colours (colours will change over time) and finishes, so it's easy to see why hardwood floors is such a popular option.

Wood flooring is available in either solid wood or engineered varieties. Solid wood flooring, as the name suggests is timber flooring which is made from single planks of your chosen timber and certainly nothing else.

Engineered wood flooring on the other hand is created of layers of plywood that's then topped with a solid oak top layer. It's the inclusion of this solid oak layer that provides engineered timber flooring its own authentic wood look.

UV lacquered hardwood floors

UV (or ultra violet cured) lacquered finish hardwood floors is great for anybody who is concerned about the negative effects caused by sunlight. With pretty much the exact same appearance as lacquered wood flooring, UV (or ultra violet cured) lacquered finish hardwood flooring gets the additional advantage of preventing any damage brought on by UV light. The ideal alternative for anyone investing in a dark coloured floor which they want to maintain, UV (or ultra violet cured) lacquered finish hardwood floors, means you'll be able to relish the rich color of your flooring for the long term.

Wide Plank Wood Floors

That is 1 trend you may expect to find every year in each fashion for the near future. Longer, wider boards make your room seem bigger, more spacious and not as active.

Shortly, short, thin boards will be viewed as obsolete. In reality, I'd venture to suppose that moving with smaller boards could significantly lower your home's resale value.

I really do think we will reach a point where enough is enough and we'll remain at these brand new conventional sizes and thus don't go buying one plank of timber for your whole hallway. That might appear weird.

But, I recommend getting on board with the massive plank trend!

Will the wide plank wood trend last in 2020 and beyond?
Producers are only trending towards wider and longer planks. This trend will soon become a classic staple and will probably endure the test of time.
