From bedrooms and dining rooms to hallways and stairs, when it comes to choosing the flooring for your home, there really is no better alternative to oak.
Oak is one of the most hard wearing surfaces available. It’s used in the manufacturing industry across the world because of it, so you’ll be making a long term investment if you opt to use it for your flooring.
Solid wood flooring is timeless. Whether it’s a modern home or a traditional farm house, its unique grain goes with everything and the huge variety of polishes and varnishes available these days also make it customisable by colour and finish. You could even freshen it up a few years down the line with a different one if you wanted to.
Opting for oak flooring in communal areas like the dining room and lounge make cleaning up stress free. Any spillages are simple to clean and if it does get marked or damaged over the years, some sand paper and a few layers of wax or polish are all you need to give it a new lease of life.
Materials like laminate and tiles are often very noisy to walk across. Oak absorbs sound unlike other flooring surfaces, making for a more relaxing ambience wherever you decide to lay it.
More and more, people are opting to have underfloor heating and oak is the perfect flooring option to go with it. It’s already warm to the touch unlike materials like stone so it’ll heat up more quickly and be a more efficient source of warmth for your home.
These are just a few of the many reasons why oak is such a solid choice when it comes to flooring. It’s also more environmentally friendly than other, plastic based materials and a lot more straight forward to install.
