For the past two weeks, our Floors of the Week have been beautiful vinyl flooring which, despite resembling real wood, is in fact vinyl – a low-maintenance and high quality flooring option. This week however, we’ve decided to ditch the vinyl and get down to the good stuff – real wooden floors. These real wooden floors are of the highest quality and are independently three solid and durable flooring choices. They’re simply stunning and add a finish to a room that cannot be beaten.
These three particular floors are different types of wood, but each one has a beautiful multi-tonal finish offering natural patterns and depths of colours where no two planks is the same. This creates such a unique foundation for any interior design scheme – and though we may be biased, we think we’ve chosen three absolute corkers this week!
13.5mm Brushed Oak Engineered Wood Flooring
14mm Dark Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring
12mm 150mm Wide 3 Strip Lacquered Oak
Which one of these gorgeous multi-tonal floors would you like most in your home? Remember, you can order up to 3 free samples from the Floormaker website!

Vinyl tiles are useful for a number of reasons: they're hard-wearing, they're easy to lay, and they're water-resistant, which makes them a great choice for the kitchen or bathroom.
But our luxury vinyl tiles go a little bit further. Not only are they robust and practical, they are also stunningly attractive, with a look that's nigh-indistinguishable from real wood flooring.
Don't believe us? Here are three of the most attractive floors from our luxury vinyl collection...
Luxury Vinyl - Pastel Grey Oak
Perfect for a light, contemporary wood-style look.
Luxury Vinyl - Beige
Give your home a bit of rustic beauty!
Luxury Vinyl - Natural Brushed Oak
A multi-hued imitation wood floor with authentic-looking whorls and knots.

If you’re struggling to decide which type of flooring will look best in your home, allow us to use this week’s Floors of the Week blog to make a recommendation: solid oak.
Solid oak is a timeless flooring material that’s sure to have an utterly stunning effect on whichever interior you’re redecorating. Whether you want a traditional, country-style look or something a little more contemporary, oak is an excellent choice – you’d be surprised by just how many different designs it can suit!
Furthermore, solid oak flooring is exceptionally hard-wearing, and you’ll be amazed by how inexpensive it can be! Here are four of our best examples:
15mm 120mm Wide Brushed & Lacquered Glueless Solid Oak
12mm 150mm Wide 3 Strip Lacquered Oak
18mm 130mm Wide Lacquered Oak Random Length
18m Solid 1 Strip Oak 83mm Wide Random Length
Like the look of our solid oak floors? Why not order a free sample?
We’ve always seen engineered wood flooring as the best of both worlds. Engineered floors are made by bonding together several layers of plywood and topping this construction with a layer of genuine wood; the real wood surface makes these products very desirable indeed, and the sturdy design means that engineered wood is a more robust choice than solid wood.
Are you sold on engineered flooring yet? If not, you soon will be – for our latest Floors of the Week, we’ve chosen four of the most beautiful products from our Engineered range. Here they are:
13.5mm Engineered Gunstock Oak
Brushed & Oiled Elephant Skin Floor
13.5mm Engineered Prussian White Oak
14mm Engineered Oak (130mm Wide)

Everybody wants a wooden floor, but few of us can afford the sky-high price of genuine hardwood flooring. Does this mean that, until our wealthy aunts and uncles bequeath us their fortunes, our dreams of beautiful wood flooring are doomed?
Perhaps not. If solid wood flooring is out of your price range, our stunning wood-style laminate flooring may well be a viable alternative – it’s cheaper, it’s easier to take care of, and if you pick the right style, it really can look just as good as real wood!
This week’s Floors of the Week were chosen for people just like you – people who want the natural beauty of hardwood, but without the price tag and troublesome maintenance requirements. What do you think of these beauties?
12mm Phalsbourg Oak
12mm Harbour Oak
7mm Rustic Oak
12mm Harbour Oak Dark
