If you follow the latest interior design trends, you most likely will have seen the Danish word hygge (pronounced hoo-guh) popping up all over the place recently. The popularity of hygge interior design has increased massively over the past year, and it's not too hard to see why - especially given all the cold weather we get here in the UK!

If you're wondering what exactly hygge is, picture yourself relaxing with a cup of hot chocolate, surrounded by beautifully cosy furniture and decor, warmed by the glow of candles while you listen to a storm rage outside. That is the definition of hygge, and if you believe the people of Denmark, hygge is the key to happiness. In Meik Wiking's The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well, the author explains that hygge is really more of a feeling than anything else, and that "the reason for Danish obsession with interior design is that our homes are the hygge headquarters". 

If you're looking to turn your home into a hygge haven, your floors and walls are the best place to start. With that in mind, here's a list of some of our favourite hygge products just for you!

Whitewashed Oak Flooring

18mm Whitewashed Oak Solid Wood Flooring

Wood is a key feature of hygge interior design due to its organic nature. Meik Wiking states that, for the Danish, "wood makes us feel closer to nature; it is simple and natural, just like the concept of hygge". This beautiful whitewashed oak flooring is sure to give any room that hyggeligt feeling and look beautiful basking in the glow of an open fire.  

Hygge Solid Wood Flooring
Similar to the above, this solid wood flooring is beautifully natural and sure to make a wonderful foundation for your hygge interior design. As solid wood floors are exceptionally good at retaining heat, this adds to the cosy hygge factor even more! Glueless solid wood flooring works really well with underfloor heating, so you can make your room as hyggeligt as you like. 

Natural cork wall tiles

Perhaps you've not considered cork walls before; however, cork is making a big comeback in the world of interior design after its previous success in the 1960s. As part of hygge is a love of all things natural, these warm-toned Hawai Natural cork wall tiles are a perfect component to make your hygge design look as authentic as possible. 

Hygge interior design

14mm Chateau Oak Wide Engineered Flooring

If you love wooden floors but you prefer engineered flooring to solid wood, this Chateau Oak floor should make an ideal addition to your hygge interior design. The mixture of warm and dark tones spread throughout the planks is sure to make any room cosy and ready for a lifetime of hygge.

Engineered walnut flooring

13.5mm Walnut 3-Wide Engineered Flooring

Engineered flooring is a good option if you're looking to spread the hygge love to more than just your living room and bedroom. Engineered flooring works well in rooms that solid wood flooring often finds problematic, like the kitchen. If you're looking to make your entire house hygge (and perhaps the reason why Danish people are amongst the happiest in the world is because they have hygge in every room), this walnut engineered flooring should at the be top of your list.

If you're searching for a new floor and you've got your heart set on genuine wooden boards, you may well be wondering whether to purchase an engineered wood floor or a solid wood floor. Though these two flooring materials look near enough identical once installed, they do behave differently in certain environments.

Since solid wood flooring is the more 'natural' product, you may be led to believe that solid wood automatically wins this debate. You may have also heard that engineered flooring is just a lower-quality alternative to hardwood; in both scenarios, you would be misinformed. But don't worry - we're here to help you with all this today, so sit back, and we'll provide you with the pros and cons of these two popular wood flooring options.

Solid Wood Flooring - Pros and Cons

Solid wood floors

Solid wood (or hardwood) flooring has been a popular choice ever since the concept of interior design was born. The Royals were some of the first to enjoy the beauty and warmth of this flooring, and during the 17th and 18th centuries it became widely popular in most homes. It's hard to dispute the stunning nature of solid wood flooring, especially as it is available in a variety of tones, ranging from strikingly dark to dazzlingly bright.


  • Solid wood flooring is cut from single pieces of timber, making it simple in terms of construction.

  • Solid wood is good at coping with heavy footfall. If your solid wood flooring becomes damaged, it can be sanded down and refinished multiple times during its lifespan, meaning it can stay with you for a lifetime.

  • Hardwood floorboards are easy to clean and are typically more hygienic than other flooring products (e.g. carpeting).

  • You can install underfloor heating underneath solid wood flooring.

  • Modern production methods have reduced solid wood manufacturing costs, meaning that this luxurious flooring option is now available for all budgets.


  • Solid wood floorboards can be damaged by moisture. A room that is too warm can make the wood dry out and shrink, while a cold room can cause the planks to absorb moisture and expand.

  • Solid wood is unsuitable for bathrooms due to the high humidity and excess moisture.

Engineered Flooring - Pros and Cons

Engineered flooring

Highly sought after, engineered flooring is a very popular alternative to solid wood nowadays. Engineered flooring is constructed using multiple layers of timber, which are then finished with a layer of hardwood timber. This means that it looks near enough identical to a solid wood floor, but with more practicality. You can achieve a wood finish with engineered flooring in a range of colours and styles, too. 


  • It looks almost identical to solid wood flooring. 

  • It is very easy to install. The majority of the engineered flooring products we sell here at Floormaker do not even require any adhesive.

  • It doesn't expand or contract as much as solid wood, making it better-suited to humid areas like the kitchen or - as long as the right underlay is used - the bathroom.

  • It is extremely durable. 

  • It can be restored by sanding in the unlikely event of damage.


  • Although it can cope with heavy footfall, engineered flooring cannot withstand quite as many years' use as a solid wood floor. 

  • It cannot be restored as many times as solid wood flooring, due to the top layer of hardwood being much thinner.

We hope this comparison has helped you to make your mind up - please feel free to browse our Solid Wood Flooring and Engineered Flooring departments for as long as you like before making your final decision. Don't forget that you can order up to 3 FREE flooring samples before you make a purchase!

Laminate flooring in the living room

Laminate flooring is one of the most popular flooring materials on the market right now. In fact, it may well be the most popular, a position it's occupied for quite some time now. Homeowners and landlords alike seem to love laminates, and it's not difficult to guess why - laminate flooring is hard-wearing, cost-effect, and it looks great and performs brilliantly in a wide variety of different spaces.

But what is laminate flooring? How are those sturdy, low-maintenance boards made? And what makes them such a winning choice for the home? If these are questions you've pondered to yourself, read on to learn the answers!

Is laminate flooring the same as wood flooring?

Not exactly. Laminate flooring is primarily made out of wood, but when people talk about 'wood flooring', they're usually referring to solid wood flooring. A solid wood board is just one solid piece of wood (most commonly oak), whereas the construction of a laminate floor plank is somewhat more complex.

How is laminate flooring made?

Laminate flooring is essentially a photocopied image of a floor placed atop a piece of hard-wearing wood and covered (or 'laminated') with a durable wear layer to protect it from damage.

What is Laminate Flooring?

The 'decorative paper' (as it is termed in the diagram above) is often designed to look like solid wood, but technically you can use any photo you want when constructing a laminate floor. There are laminates that look like ceramic tiles, stone slabs, and patterned mosaics; there are also a whole host of out-there laminate flooring designs that look unlike any natural flooring product you could imagine!

Unusual Laminate Floors

The advantages of laminate flooring

The great thing about laminate flooring is the fact that it allows you to emulate the flooring material of your choice - be it solid wood, glossy tiles, et cetera - without any of the difficulties. Laminate flooring is:
  • Attractive
  • Durable and low-maintenance
  • Easy to install
  • Suitable for a wide range of rooms
  • Very reasonably priced
Few (if any!) other types of flooring tick all five of these boxes, so laminate flooring stands more or less alone as the product of choice for busy households on a tight budget!

Selecting a floor for your kitchen can be a tricky business. The kitchen tends to be a more challenging environment than, say, the living room because of the water and food spills that often come into contact with the kitchen floor. Constant exposure to moisture and mess can be rough on a floor, and if you select the wrong material you'll quickly come to regret it.

However, the good news is that there are plenty of flooring materials that can cope in the kitchen, and with a huge variety of styles to choose from, you can indulge your inner interior designer while still making sensible decisions and purchasing products that will hold up well in votre cuisine. Here are ten delightful kitchen flooring ideas to get your inspiration flowing:

Slate Laminate Kitchen Flooring

Faus 8mm Aventino Arena Slate Laminate Flooring

This light-coloured slate effect laminate floor has a quaint countryside charm that's just perfect for the kitchen, we think.

Lacquered Engineered Light Oak Flooring

Westco 14.5mm Light Oak Engineered Flooring

Imperial Oak Laminate Flooring

Faus 8mm Imperial Oak Laminate Flooring

This one is a laminate floor, but the knots and whorls on the surface make it almost indistinguishable from real wood! Board width varies from one plank to the next, giving this floor an unrefined feel that works very well in the kitchen.

Black Glossy Laminate Kitchen Tiles
