Real Wood Flooring
Installing Real Wood Flooring in a conservatory can make a beautiful feature out of the floor, it offers a real touch of class and beauty and makes a feature of the floor, it can complement any type of décor and will really stand up against the tests of time.
This type of floor covering, often called hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of timber which is kiln dried or air dried and then sawn into planks between 16mm and 20mm thick. The planks come in a variety of sizes, both in terms of length and width with absorption strips cut into the back of each piece, this minimizes splitting or warping due to atmospheric conditions such as moisture and heat. The board fit together with a tongue and grove system which prevents movement or separation between the boards.
Real Wood to Match Your DecorReal Wood or hardwood flooring is available in a wide variety of wood types and colour choices, you can further personalize the look of the floor by using a wood stain of your choice allowing you to match your floor with the current décor or planned décor of your home. Ranges include such wood types as mahogany, beech, pine, walnut, oak and even bamboo!
Real Wood or Engineered WoodThis type of wood flooring should not be confused with laminate flooring, laminate is a cheaper material which can offer a wood effect but is made from a fibrous or resin material with a laminated finish, it has its advantages such as being scratch and mark free, is cheaper and easy to install but it does not offer quite the look of real wood planks.
There is also engineered wood flooring which is not quite the same as real wood but again has its advantages, engineered wood looks like solid wood but is made up of thin layers of wood glued together with a top veneer to give the floor its colour and appearance. This floor type resists moisture better than real wood and is perhaps better for use on concrete sub bases.
Though it may not be suitable for certain situations or on all floor types, if installed correctly it will last you many years, it can be sanded down and re-stained over and over again over the years which you could not do with laminate or engineered wood floors.
