Floors of the Week: Strong & Sturdy

Sturdy flooring

Life can be tough on a floor. Whether it's a spileld drink, the cat's claws, or just the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, there's always something threatening to ruin your beautiful boards.

Fortunately, our floors are more than up to the task of coping with you and your family. Here are six examples of the tough, resilient products that we have to offer:

Rustic oak flooring

Luxury Vinyl Clic Flooring - Rustic Oak

Our Luxury Vinyl floors are superbly tough, and this design looks just like real oak!


Herringbone oak floor

10.5mm Oak Wood Herringbone Floor

Engineered wood flooring is inherently sturdy and long-lasting. That traditional-looking herringbone pattern hides a superbly robust construction!


Akzent beech

8mm Akzent Beech

This laminate floor may look weathered and fragile, but the surface is actually very hard-wearing indeed. It's shabby-chic style with none of the hassle!


Black slate tile

Luxury Vinyl Clic Flooring - Black Slate Tile

Another offering from our Luxury Vinyl range, this time in the style of beautiful black slate.


Playground laminate flooring

8mm Playground Laminate Flooring

The floor of a child's bedroom takes more punishment than most, but this wonderfully cute design (and, more importantly, its resilient laminated surface) will hold up over years and years of playtime.


White oak flooring

13.5mm Engineered Prussian White Oak

Finally, here's another gem from our Engineered department. You might think that white flooring is a foolish choice for a busy family home, but this floor is easy to clean and superbly long-lasting!

Floors of the Week: Laminate, Engineered, or Solid Wood?

Laminate and wood flooring

So you've decided that your home needs a new floor, but you're not sure which type to buy. Do you want a hard-wearing Laminate floor, a robust Engineered product, or a sturdy, sumptuous Solid Wood surface?

In this week's Floors of the Week blog, we're going to help you make that decision. Here are two examples of each of those three options - laminate, engineered, and solid wood. Which do you like best?


Laminate Flooring:

Richmond oak laminate

8mm Richmond Oak

This is a knotty, authentic-looking laminate with outstanding resilience.


Rustic laminate flooring

A lighter option than the Richmond Oak floor, this laminate is very true to its name - rustic, country-style beauty at an affordable price.


Engineered Flooring:

Merbau effect oak

With an elegant yet modern look, this merbau-effect oak floor is very striking indeed!


Herringbone oak floor

10.5mm Limed Oak Herringbone Parquet Flooring

Dark oak flooring

18mm 1 Strip Dark Oak (83mm wide, random length)

Dark, rich, and entirely authentic, this solid oak floor is perfect for interior design connoisseurs.


Solid oak floor

10mm Solid Oak (90mm wide, random length)

The surface of this floor is exquisitely detailed, and the wooden oak boards will stay beautiful for years.

Floors of the Week: All Sorts of Laminate Flooring!

Assorted laminate flooring

Laminate flooring is made by bonding a decorative appliqué to a strong layer of fibreboard, then topping this construction with a transparent wear layer for added protection. Laminate floors are very popular nowadays, partly because of how easy they are to install and look after, and partly because they allow homeowners and interior designers to achieve all kinds of different looks on a shoestring budget.

Here, for example, are six of the wildly diverse designs available from Floormaker's own Laminate Flooring department...

Oxford Oak laminate flooring

7mm V-Groove Oxford Oak

Palisander White Oak flooring

Floors of the Week: Glossy & Gorgeous!

Glossy laminate flooring

Looking for a new floor? Have you considered purchasing something with a glossy finish? Going glossy can be a great way to ensure that your new design looks as eye-catching and as full of life as possible - there's no better way to reinvigorate a room!

Glossy flooring can also help a small room to look bigger. A glossy finish reflects more light, which creates the illusion of space and adds a feeling of breezy openness to even the most cramped interiors.
