The unique advantages of Timber flooring
27 August 2012 | Blog Cat
With a growth in popularity over the last decade, timber flooring is starting to become a new favourite for renovators and homebuilders alike. We put this down to its durability, aesthetics and warmth of character that can bring a home or a room to life.
What makes timber flooring so unique?
As mentioned above, timber flooring is very popular due to its aesthetics and character. Each tree is different, meaning each timber floor will follow this same pattern. Each tree will have it’s own unique blueprint of distinctive grain, texture and pattern, meaning no two floors will be the same, and you will have an individual and natural floor covering for your home.
What are the advantages of timber flooring?
Timber flooring is a well-known influence to increasing the value of your home. Why? For one, it has a sense of individual character, two, it is easier to maintain and clean, and also, timber flooring can be more beneficial to your health as a whole. For those with allergies such as asthma or hay fever, can rest assured that timber flooring does not absorb and trap dirt and dust like some other floor coverings.
What type of coating should I consider for my timber flooring?
When choosing a coating for your floor, you must take into consideration the amount of traffic it needs to endure. With polyurethane finish being the most durable coating, applying this will ensure it can stand up to any heavy traffic. A water based finish however, while still very durable, does wear a lot quicker, but is a popular choice for commercial applications due to the minimal smell and drying time.
