Top Tips for Installing Wood Flooring

Choosing the best type of flooring for your home can be confusing. In my day job I get to see inside a lot of people’s homes. This means that quite often I take inspiration from their homes.  For example, one house I work in has a beautiful bathroom. They have a freestanding bath that looks so elegant along with cute, little plants lining the windowsill. It looks beautiful.  In another house, their living room is based upon a ‘country cottage style’. They have wooden beams, beautiful wood flooring and an open fire place. It’s very cosy and warm.  Taking inspiration… [Read More]

We’ve already come to terms with the fact that this will probably be a maisonette, hopefully on the ground floor, with a fairly nice garden for our children to play… [Read More]

The Advantages of Single Plank Engineered Wood Flooring *

Do you ever dream about what your ideal home would be like? Perhaps you’re renting like us, which means you can’t change the decor without your landlords permission, or you simply don’t want to spend money decorating a house that’s not yours. I certainly know that feeling! However, when I think of my ideal home, our forever home, I often wonder about how I’d decorate it.

Protecting your home: Most Demanding Wooden Floors in the UK! *

When you live in a house with children, it can be hard to protect your household wares from damage. A spilt drink here or a blob of yoghurt there, can ruin your best carpet and leave your beautiful wooden flooring stained forever. Sadly, I know this from personal experience. Sometimes a spilt drink can be mopped up pretty quickly, but when you’ve got kids they may not always tell you straight away if they’re spilt their drink. This means it could be left to sit on the surface of your lovely wooden floor for a long time, which can then… [Read More]
