Quality wood flooring has a timeless appeal. Unlike many other flooring types, wood ages beautifully, often increasing in value as it takes on a character of its own. Wood floors can also be made from repurposed timber, making them an excellent choice for sustainable projects. Since it is a natural resource, it is both renewable and recyclable.
Wood floors are one of the easiest floor types to keep clean. Wood does not collect dust or other allergens, meaning that cleaning takes little more than sweeping and/or vacuuming, with occasional use of a professional wood floor cleaning product. When you choose your wood floor, we are happy to help you choose the right cleaning product.
Today, there are more styles, colours, and species of wood flooring available than ever before. Whether you’re looking for traditional oak, rustic pine, exotic wenge, or trendy bamboo, you’re sure to find a colour and style to fit your décor.
At Kennington Flooring, we provide three main types of wood flooring:
All flooring that is manufactured from one piece of wood is considered solid wood flooring. From the choice of species to stains and finishes, solid flooring gives you a great opportunity for customisation, enabling you to choose a truly personal wood floor. This is an excellent choice in most areas of the home from the ground floor up.
Engineered wood flooring product consists of layers of wood pressed together, with the grains running in different directions. It is available in 3 and 5 ply. Engineered flooring is perfect for those areas of the house where solid wood flooring may not be suitable, such as basements, kitchens, powder rooms, and utility rooms. Because the grains run in different directions, it is more dimensionally stable than solid wood.
Laminate flooring is an extremely hard-wearing floor covering, made up of a number of varying layers. Designs have vastly improved over recent years, making it virtually impossible to tell a good quality laminate from a real wood floor once it is laid. With new finishes such as registered embossing, beveled edges, and extremely realistic textures, laminates now look as good as the real thing.
