Christmas is prime time when it comes to cleaning. Your friends and family coming over means you have a lot more foot traffic than normal, which could mean disaster for your flooring. Glitter from Christmas decorations, dirty shoes and possibly even snow are all culprits for creating an unclean floor in your home.
Amongst the huge range of designs, colours and composition available in wood flooring, plank width is yet another consideration when on the hunt for a new floor. Alongside standard plank width, you can go for a narrow plank or wide plank, depending on your preference.
But which should you choose?
If you’re a lover of daytime television, you may have flicked over to see Channel 4’s Bang on Budget at one point or another. The show focuses on home renovation, creating stunning homes on a tight budget. Naturally, this seemed like the perfect fit for Direct Wood Flooring. So, we got to work in helping presenters Lucy Alexander and Harry Hoffen make the transformation happen.
When it comes to choosing your new flooring, we’re well past the days of limited options. Roll back the years, and you’d only have different species of solid wood to choose from.
As technology has advanced, so has the composition of wood flooring. Furthermore, so has the variety of choice. Two popular, modern alternatives to solid wood are laminate and engineered wood flooring. But what’s the difference, and how do you choose between the two?
In amongst different variations of wood species, composition and design, there is another factor that those looking for a new Wood Flooring to consider; fitting mechanisms. Generally speaking, there are three main choices that fall into this category: tongue and groove, click, and solid blocks. As solid blocks are fairly self-explanatory, we’re going to put the spotlight on the remaining two. It’s tongue and groove versus click – who comes out on top?
