Thinking of a wood floor? Here are our top 3 tips

Establish that it is a wood floor and not laminate with a small V groove - Compare these two images below. Without a V groove a real timber floor can look like a laminate.

To be sure that the wood floor is stable - particularly if there is to be underfloor heating- choose engineered board. An odd extra wide plank mixed in will give an authentic look. Even sized widths a more contemporary feel. 

Image of engineered board. the top 6-8mm is solid timber. The substrate is composite timber in alternating directions to prevent swelling and shrinkage.


Mistakenly a dark wood is often chosen in the belief that  darker the wood the less marks will show

Choose a mid tone such as Oak as in the image below
