Where to use wooden flooring

By identifying the areas that need to be able to handle a lot of traffic, such as hallways and living rooms, a more durable flooring that can resist wear and tear is advised.

A solid, dense wood such as Oak is the perfect example of this. The greater the density, the more resistant to scratches and wear. This type of wood is also classically beautiful and will add considerable value to your home.

Another room which can take a take a bashing from lots of traffic and spills is of course the kitchen. Engineered timber boards are fine to use in a kitchen although spills need to be mopped up quickly. 

Using a wood floor in a bathroom is not always advisable. Moisture is almost always present and could cause your wood floor to expand. Fired Earth have several porcelain wood effect tiles which are perfect for wet areas allowing for peace of mind.
