Tips On Using Various Timber Flooring Products
Flooring is one of the most important elements to get right in any space. Being one of the largest surfaces in your home, flooring is extremely crucial to define a space and will have a big impact on the style, mood and atmosphere. Timber products are a beautiful material, which add a comforting warmth, ambience and interest to any space. There are also many types and colours available, making timber flooring a versatile option for almost any style home. However, this can also make the process of selecting your timber flooring material daunting! At Tile Wizards, we want to help you choose the right style with our tips and trends for timber flooring.
Two of the biggest trends in timber flooring products are laminate timber-look flooring and solid bamboo flooring. They both have the appearance of timber without the hefty price tag. Bamboo is a sustainable product which grows quickly and is amazingly durable and much harder than traditional timber flooring. Bamboo has the same colour range as timber and is easy to install. Timber laminate flooring is a much more economical option than solid timber floors, and you will have trouble distinguishing from the real thing!
Laying Your Flooring
Laying your timber flooring in certain directions or patterns is another decision you will have to make when deciding on your flooring. Many of the flooring options available at Tile Wizards can be installed as DIY products. This gives you a lot of control over installation decisions, as well as potentially saving a large amount of money that can be invested in other areas of your home…
When using a lighter shade timber, such as the NSW Spotted Gum and the QLD Spotted Gum, pair it with a darker wall. Similarly, if you choose a darker coloured timber flooring, like the Glen-Doussie (available at Tile Wizards), make sure the surrounding walls and fixtures are white or cream to create the latest look.
Limed finishes are also hugely popular at the moment with timber floorboards. Milky greys, limed whites and light-washes help to create softness and a subtle look, and create a fresh feel in any interior. Keep the surrounding walls light as well to create a rustic and relaxed atmosphere.
