UK’s Best Engineered Oak Flooring Suppliers – Best Quality Wood at Lowest Prices Online

With the holiday season almost around the corner, there is no denying the fact that house renovations are already on the charts. At the same time, it is hard to overlook the role of flooring in the home renovations, simply because they play an integral part in the house interiors. The more the options available within the flooring category, the more the choices a home owner needs to make to ensure the flooring for each floor is apt as per the interiors.

Flooring offers a wide variety of options to prospective home owners. Right from carpeting to stone flooring to wooden flooring, there is no dearth of options when it comes to home flooring. Depending on the locality of the rooms and the usage, the flooring will tend to vary. Despite the location, it is difficult to negate the fact that engineered wood flooring has become an inseparable part of every household in the UK, simply because of the designs, the durability and the ease of maintenance.

Within the engineered oak flooring categories, there are many options, which are available in the market currently. Despite the varying ranges of wooden flooring variety, oak has emerged to be one of the more preferred options, given its durability, hardness, availability and designs.

With this said and done, let’s take a look at some of the oak flooring options and what differences they provide to the home owners.

Solid Oak Flooring vs. Engineered Oak Flooring

Traditionally, hardwood flooring was available in thick planks of solid oak. These days oak solid flooring is still widely available; on the contrary, engineered oak flooring is gaining rapid popularity within the market. Unlike solid wooden flooring, engineered oak planks are made with a thin layer of hardwood, which is further bonded with other wooden layers. This is done to prevent the floor from shifting during its expansion and contraction cycle changes.

In an ideal situation, engineered oak flooring is perfect for basements and houses which have concrete subfloors. Given their structure, they offer an installation advantage to the house owners. Unlike engineered wood, solid wood is often installed over one or more layers of plywood, which in turn raises the height of the flooring. While this can cause interruptions and obtrusions below doors, it’s preferred over engineered wood due to its sturdiness and design structure.

Even though engineered flooring is moisture resistant, it is not preferred over solid wood. However, it is hard to overlook the fact that many people have different preferences when it comes to flooring. During the installation stage, you can choose the variety which suits your requirements.

Oil vs. Polyurethane finish

Most finishing categories are limited to oil and polyurethane finishes in the wooden flooring category. On one hand, oil penetrates the wood, and imparts it with a rich, soft yet natural look. On the other hand, polyurethane creates a hard top coat on the wood, making it impervious to stains of all sorts. This is not all, for a layer of polyurethane will also make the wooden flooring shiny and more resilient to wear and tear in the long run. However, since nothing is perfect, even polyurethane flooring has its downfalls. After a certain amount of wear and tear, polyurethane coating will eventually end up with scratches. If this does happen, the entire board would have to be replaced, since it can’t be touched up in spots like oil finishing.

When it comes to maintenance, it’s almost like paying now vs. paying later with respect to oil and polyurethane. Soft oil is easier to maintain, with a drawback of having to do the touchups regularly. On the other hand, polyurethane is harder to maintain, but also provide lesser maintenance intervals to the users.

Why is Engineered Wood Flooring the Best?

In the UK, Engineered oak flooring is taking precedence over all other types of flooring. Believe it or not, but it has actually been titled as the king of hardwood flooring, given its capacity to take strain very well. It possesses an appealing grainy design, which makes it a favorite in the design circles.

The bigger the room, the bigger should be the plank sizes. In an ideal room size, the plank size should be between four to six inches. As compared to the traditional norms, the two to three inch plank sizes have been replaced by these expansive wooden plank sizes, slowly giving way to the luxurious sizes. If you want to take luxury up by a notch, you can even go to seven inches to get the extra broad plank style in the room. Avoid using thin strips, as the expansion and contraction can cause problems later on.
