5 Benefits of Wooden Floor Installation

We have put together a list of benefits of wooden floor installation, and the available types. Whether you’re considering installing wooden flooring within your home, gym, office, hall, school, or other commercial space, keep on reading!

Types of wooden flooring

The main types of wood flooring include:

Parquet Flooring

Technically parquet flooring should fit into the solid hardwood flooring category, as this is not a type of wood. It is more a style of laying panels of wood in a particular way.

The most popular parquet flooring patterns include Chevron and Herringbone. There is also Mosaic, Parquet de Versailles, Bordeaux, Mansion Weave, and Chantilly for those looking for something a bit more unusual.

Parquet flooring also comes in a variety of colours too, with grey parquet flooring still being a popular trend in 2022.

Solid Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring consists of solid pieces of wood planks, such as Oak, Walnut, Bamboo, Maple, Pine, and Parquet. These are fitted using the tongue and groove method.

This has been used for thousands of years in homes, halls, churches, and many other commercial spaces.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered wood flooring consists of a top layer of wood (sometimes multiple layers) over a subfloor of synthetic materials and concrete underneath.

This type of wood flooring is a better choice for areas with higher humidity. It comes in various colours and finishes, making it a popular choice. Some of the finishes you can have include white oak wood flooring, dark oak wood flooring, and a rustic finish.

So now we’ve discovered the main types of wooden flooring available. We’ve put together 5 benefits of installing wooden flooring in your home or commercial space.

5 Benefits of wooden floor installation

  1. Durability

Engineered and hardwood flooring are popular choices in homes, halls, offices, gyms, and schools. They are due hard-wearing, strong, and able to withstand the test of time.

To ensure you get the most out of your hardwood or engineered flooring, we have put together a helpful guide. This guide also includes how to prevent damage from occurring in the first place.

  1. Dust-Free Wood Floor Refinishing

Thanks to new technology, maintaining wooden flooring by sanding it down no longer needs to be a messy process. This means you can have your floor refinished without the hassle of having to dust everything down.

At Sussex Floor Restoration, our dust extraction technology allows us to achieve a 95% dustless service on a range of surfaces. This can be for commercial or domestic spaces.

  1. Easy To Clean

Another benefit of installing wooden flooring is that it’s easy to clean up and remove any spillages.

At Sussex Floor Restoration we have a trusted supplier of cleaning products that we recommend to all of our customers. This is the Pallmann Clean and Go System range of floor mops and cleaning solutions. These are designed to maintain the natural beauty of your floor.

  1. Better Air Quality

Dust, dirt, and allergies cannot cling to wooden flooring in the same way a carpet would. This creates better air quality in an office space, gym, hall, and home. They are also a firm favourite for those who suffer from allergies or have breathing issues such as asthma.

  1. Better Acoustics

Solid wood flooring for centuries has been a firm favourite in concert and music halls, gyms, offices, meeting spaces, and schools. One of the reasons for this is its ability to amplify and absorb sound waves to deflect the sound.

Please seek professional advice before choosing your flooring to ensure you select the most appropriate material for your requirements.
