Real Wood Flooring
Capture the unmistakable natural beauty of a real wood with a hardwood floor.
A real wood floor adds natural warmth and charm to any room within your home. Real wood flooring provides timeless appeal that never falls out of fashion, and will always create a first impression that will last.
The inherent individuality of a wood floor comes from the natural variation of the material. No two pieces of flooring are the same – in essence every wood floor we install is unique. If you are looking for a beautiful floor that is completely yours – wood flooring is the natural choice.
The key differences between Hardwood Flooring & LVT.
The natural variation of real wood flooring truly creates a floor that is unique to your home.
Choose from hundreds of styles & wood species available in various plank sizes and shapes to create a floor that is individual to your home.
Understanding the differences between solid wood floor, engineered wood floor and laminate flooring.
Each plank or tile of Solid wood flooring is manufactured from a single piece of timber. With the correct maintenance it will last decades. It can even be re-finished to bring back the original surface appearance years after installation.
The visible top layer of an Engineered wood floor plank/tile consists of a solid, real wood veneer. Beneath the real wood top layer is a durable base layer or layers made from less expensive materials which add rigidity whilst saving the cost compared to solid wood planks or tiles.
Laminate floor tiles and planks are made up of a composite core with a simulated natural surface on top, protected with an anti scratch surface coating. The base of the laminate has a balanced board that will not cup or bow when properly installed to help create a perfectly level and stable floor.

Just a few top tips and frequently asked questions about how to look after your newly installed LVT.
Try to only use cleaning fluids that are suitable for real wood flooring. Some oil-based cleaning fluids will leave streaks and when dry show a residue. Certain cleaners may actually damage the protective surface coating of the laminate. Always spray the cleaner onto the cloth or mop you are using, avoid spraying it direct on to the floor surface.
Avoid using oils or waxes on a new wooden floor as a new wooden floor will be most likely be sealed with a protective coating, any oils or waxes cannot penetrate the into the material. By preventing the floor absorbing the waxes and oils, they remain on top and are likely to make the floor very slippy and dangerous.
It’s important to remove spillages on your wooden floor immediately. Allowing a liquid to sit on the wooden floor increases the chances of it penetrating into the wood and leaving a lasting stain. Mop up any spillages immediately with clean damp or dry mop.
It’s important when cleaning spillages such as juice or wine to keep any additional water to a minimum. Aim to remove the majority of the spill with a cloth before wiping clean.
Sunlight is the biggest culprit for the discolouration of any type of flooring. Direct sunlight over time will cause the colour of a floor to fade, to avoid this we suggest closing curtains wherever possible to shade areas of extreme sunlight.
Heat emitting appliances such as heaters can also cause discolouration. Try to avoid permanent sources of heat over your floor, and where unavoidable consider using a mat to help protect the surface.
Note: Use unbacked mats on LVT as the rubber backing can itself cause discolouration.
