When it comes to choosing the right kind of flooring for your home, wooden floors can be an ideal option. Wooden flooring is much easier to clean then carpets and require just a simple brush and wipe to remove dirt with ease. For families with children or pets an easy to clean floor is ideal. If you have a carpet in your dining room, you’ll be only too familiar with how hard it can be to keep your carpet clean and stain-free from all those messy meal times! 

You may have to replace your carpet every five to ten years as it gets older but a good quality wooden flooring can last for decades and will need only minimal maintenance. Wooden flooring is also by far a more hygienic option than carpet which can be host to a whole range of parasites. Wooden flooring is also easy to treat if you get any scratches or wear and tear to it.

There are different types of wooden flooring to chose from. Engineered flooring is one of the most popular types of wooden flooring. This is due to it's durability, strength and versatility. A smooth veneered top layer of hardwood is bonded to base layers. Because it is constructed in layers, it is less prone to shrinking and warping than solid wood floors. It comes in a wide range of styles and finishes so you can choose one in keeping with the decor of your home.

Solid Wood Flooring is a natural 100% wood flooring. It is cut from one piece of solid wood which is cut down to the required size. It offers a beautiful, rustic and natural flooring option for your home.

Laminate flooring is an ideal option for those on a budget. It is an alternative to real wood or stone flooring. It looks realistic and comes in range of different styles and textures.
