You want a real wood floor, but you have an extremely tight budget. Well, you’re in luck! Laminate flooring manufacturing now produces a product that looks and feels just like real timber flooring and is perfect for heavy traffic areas, kids and pets. It’s hard-wearing and easy to maintain. And it’s much cheaper than timber flooring.
As the name suggests, bamboo flooring is made from… bamboo. It has emerged as a popular alternative to hardwood flooring – praised for being strong, durable, and naturally resistant to insects and moisture. It’s also largely considered to be an eco-friendly choice.
Engineered Hardwood Timber
Since their invention in the 1960s, engineered wood floors have improved in appearance and performance, accounting for 30 percent of all the wood flooring sold in America today. Available in dozens of wood species, and with new surface effects, such as hand scraped, for a timeworn patina, these high-tech boards now look just right in any vintage house, whether it’s a 1910 foursquare or a ’70s raised ranch.
Solid Timber Flooring
Solid timber is thicker than engineered and, as such, can be sanded and treated many more times than an engineered timber floor. Solid timber is made only of timber utilizing a tongue and groove method. The boards come Raw and are sanded and polished after they are installed. They can be sanded and polished numerous times depending on the thickness.
