When you opt for a hardwood flooring, you are saying something about the way that you view the world around you. Many Ealing residents have concluded that using wooden floors is a way of getting closer to a natural environment.
It is always worth remembering that wood represents a living, breathing construction material. That sets it apart from many alternatives and ensures that home-owners are receiving something that is truly unique. In particular, we may reflect on the fact that this is a key difference between a top quality floor of this kind and making use of a laminate.
While modern laminates do an excellent job of looking like solid wood floors, they don’t have the same feel. Up close, the differences become rather obvious.
As a result of those differences, we find that discerning customers in Ealing most often opt for hardwood flooring. They realise that it will be a little more expensive, but they also appreciate that they are getting something that will set their homes apart from the norm. This is a means of making a lifestyle statement and of ensuring that you are left with something that will truly leave you feeling proud. Ultimately, this says a lot about the aims of interior design and property refurbishment.
What does a hardwood floor actually consist of?
In the most basic terms, it can be thought of as being made up of single pieces of timber, although there are considerable variations associated with what’s available these days. In particular, you can choose from a variety of wood thicknesses and widths. These options enable you to choose an overall flooring solution that will fit perfectly within your home.
You also have options to choose different finishes. It’s possible, for example, to buy a hardwood floor that is pretty much in its natural state. Increasingly, however, buyers are looking for varnished finishes, which can offer both additional protection and a changed appearance.
Flooring of this type can usually be fitted relatively easily and our expert installers have the knowledge to carry out the task rapidly. Depending upon what is required, we will typically either use a glue or nails to ensure that the timber is suitably affixed to the sub-floor.
Why to choose hardwood flooring?
Many home owners tend to think of hardwood flooring as a long-term investment. Given that it is hard wearing and won’t need to be changed to suit preferences in terms of your interior design choices, this makes a lot of sense. If you simply want cheap products that can’t be guaranteed to last as long, then there are other options available to you.
