Though you might not necessarily think it, the flooring that you choose to have installed in your home will become a large part of your home life.

Not only that, but depending on if you want to sell your property in the near future, what flooring you buy will affect how long it takes to sell your house, and even how much that you sell it for.

One of the best choices for many however is wooden flooring. Take a look at these different types of wooden flooring.

 

Solid Hardwood Flooring

Solid hardwood flooring is one of the most popular flooring choices currently found in the United Kingdom.

Manufactured from solid planks of wood, the floor, once installed in your home, can last generations and if well looked after, it could be used for centuries. Luckily, caring and cleaning your hardwood floor is very easy.

Though solid flooring is one of the most expensive options for your home, it is one of the most traditional. For hundreds of years, homes all over the UK have been using wood as a flooring choice, and because of this, hardwood flooring has now become imbedded in our history and culture.

 

Possibly the greatest advantage of hardwood flooring is the fact that it can actually raise the price of your property; great news if you’re looking to sell in the future.

To add to this, research has also shown that hardwood floors, if noted in the sellers guide, will help your home sell quicker.

 

Engineered Flooring

The alternative and cheaper option to hardwood flooring is engineered flooring. Rather than comprising of one sole plank, an engineered floor is manufactured using multiple layers of chip composite, with a layer of chosen wood on the surface.

Although many people feel that engineered flooring is a compromise to solid flooring; it too has benefits.

If you’re looking to install wooden flooring into a room that regularly faces changing humidity or temperature, then this is where engineered flooring finds its place.

Whereas you run the risk of damaging a solid wooden floor in this kind of environment, engineered flooring works remarkably well in these conditions and is actually more suited.

As far as house pricing is concerned, many people expect that installing engineered flooring into a home will actually lower the value of the property; thankfully this is not the case.

For those that are actually worried about the quality of engineered flooring, you may be happy to know that between engineered and solid flooring, there is actually no visual difference; much of it falls solely on the price.

Possibly the biggest clincher for many lies in the fact that buying engineered flooring is actually better for the environment, as it takes less trees to manufacture.

 

So Which is Better?

The truth is that only you can decide on which flooring choice is better for your home.

With money, style and the environment all thrown into the mix, it is an important choice that can only be taken after a good deal of thought has taken place.

    Hi Luciane,
    Love the flooring in the first pictures. Can’t tell if it is on a diagonal or straight. I do not like hardwood or tile laid on a diagonal. My hardwood is solid oak and dark like the last picture, but if I ever build another home I would love the look in the top pictures. Do you know what type of wood it is? It almost looks like pine which is a really soft wood. Don’t like the Engineered flooring look.

  2. Hi Lana,

    Thank you for your comment. It’s always very nice to hear from you! 🙂

    The floors on that kitchen are vintage oak floors. Aren’t they gorgeous?

    I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

    I’ve been in the kitchen of the top two pictures….Just a beautiful home and the flooring is awesome!

    Top three pictures:)

  5. Lauren leight said,

    Hello,

    Who makes the chandelier over the stand alone island???

  8. Cynthia said,

    Yes, as Gina said “who makes the chandelier?” Also who makes the pendant lighting above the island??? The iron lighting really sets the mood perfectly with the flooring! Love the flow of everything!!!

  9. Hello Cynthia.

    I love the light fixture in this kitchen, but unfortunately I don’t have its sources. Restoration Hardware carries similar lighting.

    For more information on these lighting you might want to contact the designer directly. He might be able to help you: http://www.signatureinnovations.com

    Let us know if you find more about them! 🙂

    Hello! We are currently building a home and have been searching endlessly for the perfect floor, as well as pendants. Please tell me the color and type of flooring this is and where the pendants can be located! Thanks so much!

    There are many floors featured here and they’re listed under “sources”.

    I hope this helps.

  12. Hi Jenn,

    I don’t have any information on the pendants, but here it is the information I have on the flooring:

    I just need to know where to find the floors in the first picture. It is a rustic flooring in a white kitchen. Please let me know who is the vendor and color name/no. My wife wants this floor.

    Thank you!
