You can choose from warm red tiles, or the more traditional brown or black tiles. These will give your home that rustic look.
When you order your French Oak Solid Wood Flooring from Richard Williams, you can specify which type of finish you would like. The flooring is normally unfinished, so the choice is up to you.
Engineered wood flooring is cheaper than solid wood flooring. What is it exactly? What are the differences between engineered wood flooring and solid wood flooring?
- Solid wood flooring is milled from a tree and comes in one piece.
- Engineered wood flooring is made from several layers (plies to the trade) that are bonded together using heat and pressure.
Engineered wooden flooring
Many people are not really aware of what engineered wood flooring is. Let’s try to rectify this. The top layer of flooring is made of solid wood. Under this are crossed layers of plywood that are pressed together using heat and pressure to form a strong, durable and stable core. The bottom layer is made of hardwood.
Not many people will be able to tell the difference between a wood floor and an engineered wood floor. Only you and your supplier will understand, and, of course, professional turners, joiners and other craftsmen who work with wood.
If you are conscious of the environment and try to minimise your carbon footprint, then engineered wood flooring is the best choice for you. Engineered wooden flooring uses between 30 and 60 percent less wood than conventional timber. It can be made from small, fast-growing trees, so is the sustainable option.
Apart from the ecological benefits of using engineered wood flooring from Richard Williams, it is easy on the eye. It will add warmth and colour to the plainest of rooms and cheer up drab spaces.
You can use leftover pieces of flooring to make patio furniture, or to make shelves for your kitchen or other rooms. You can spread the beauty around your home. Flooring doesn’t have to be used solely on floors. Be creative, experiment and see how you can add a certain flair, warmth and beauty to your home with a little imagination! Order a little more flooring than you need so that you can be creative.
Another benefit of engineered wood is that it is stronger and more durable than conventional timber. It is also straighter and stiffer, so there is less chance of it warping or shrinking.
