If you are considering oak wooden flooring for your home, then there are a few things to think about before you take the next step.
Wooden flooring is a beautiful choice for your home. It adds a sense of luxury, whilst keeping a simple, clean and natural look to the space in which it’s added.
Oak is a great choice for your flooring. It has been used for centuries in construction and has therefore established itself as a durable material, perfect for the floors in your home. It requires very little maintenance, because manufactured oak tends to come treated ready to resist damage and staining. There are also natural features of oak wood that prevent staining, as well as naturally occurring tannins and oils that help prevent the formation of mould, stains and other marks. It is also naturally resistant to fungus, and it is these natural benefits of oak wood that make it a very hygienic choice for your household, especially in areas like the kitchen.
Oak is structurally very strong, so this hard wearing, durable wood is a great choice, and it can scale to whatever size your project or budget is, meaning areas large or small can benefit from the smart look of an oak floor.
