We have become particularly good at helping people design the perfect timber floors for their homes. Here are some of the things you need to consider when designing a timber floor.
Timber Flooring: What Are Your Needs?
This may be better asked as “What size is the room and what are you going to use it for?” You will need to have exact measurements to get a perfect quote. After you know how much timber flooring you need, the next question to answer is “What are you using the room for?” For example, do you have children? Pets? Do you wear workboots into your home? Is it a recreation room? Will you be entertaining a lot of guests?
All of these questions tell you how strong you will need to make your floor.
What Kind of Timber Do You Want?
Your choice of timber flooring material will depend on the questions you asked yourself above. Do you want a really hard, durable floor or will a softer timber work for you? What timber colour would you like? Most are classified as blonde, brown or red but there are many different shades in between.
What Kind of Finish Do You Want?
There are a lot of different options, all with benefits and drawbacks. You can choose an oil or a lacquer, for example. You can choose a clear finish or you can stain your floor. It’s all a matter of personal taste and what works best for the demands you place on your floor.
