Semi-Solid – floors which have a very thick layer of the specific wood on top of a less expensive wood.
Engineered – floating hardwood floors made up of 3 layers: a hardwood veneer (14 or 15 mm); a core layer and a stabilising base layer.
I would like to have a new floor in the kitchen but I am also changing a kitchen which one should I do first?
We recommend that the floor is fitted first, otherwise removing white goods (washing machine, fridge etc…) for service or repair would be problematic.
I am worried about getting dog scratches on my hardwood floor.
Dog’s claws will scratch the lacquer on your floor. However, if you choose an oiled finish the scratches will not show up.
Real wood skirting’s and architraves are a perfect complement to your floor. The skirting’s come in sizes from 95mm upwards however the architrave can also be used as skirting when a small skirting is required. Likewise the skirting can be used when you need a larger architrave than the standard size supplied. You would need to check that the skirting is not reversible if using it for architrave otherwise the reverse side will be visible.
