There are two basic types of wood flooring to choose from, solid or engineered. The "engineered" product has a surface of premium hardwood bonded to a laminated base. This construction counteracts wood's tendency to shrink and expand and makes it easier to lay. Solid products are available in planks, strips or parquet. An extensive variety of woods are used for flooring giving a wide range of colours and textures which form the perfect base for any décor.
Wood floors can be used throughout your home; we particularly recommend them for all reception rooms, studies, hallways. Modern protective finishes make wood flooring more practical than ever. There is no need for special polishes and buffing. To keep them in good shape all that is needed is a soft broom or vacuum cleaner.
Don't forget to ask for your cleaning products.
Essentially all laminates are composed of three layers, a surface layer, a core layer and a backing layer. These layers are fused together under extreme heat and pressure to form a hardwearing board. Colour and pattern of the board result from a printed photograph included in the surface layer. Because of the photographic technology used to produce the board's pattern and colour laminate flooring is available in a wide variety of styles with few limitations. Wood and stone effects are very popular but are by no means the only finishes available.
Laminate floors are suitable for most rooms in the house. We particularly recommend them for areas which are heavily used such as your kitchen, living rooms and dining rooms. They are also ideal for "special purpose" rooms such as your home office, library and workshop. Laminates are extremely durable, great for homes with a high degree of foot traffic. They are exceedingly easy to maintain without costly chemicals or polishes and will not fade even in direct sunlight.
Smooth floors have become increasingly popular, with cushioned vinyls being used in many domestic areas including kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms and conservatories.
Cushion floor coverings are designed in such a way that they allow full flexibility when creating a floor that will fulfil your dreams and desires. The theme of just about any interior can be brought to life.
Fashions come and go, but some products are as constant as the seasons. Cushion floor is just such a product, outlasting the latest fad thanks to a huge choice of colours and designs and a host of unique benefits
