Solid hardwood would always evoke elegance in every space. Most country-style homes and villas would have solid timber floorings. These floors not only reflect the natural beauty of the material but also the durability of hardwood that truly stands the test of time. But do not think that these solid timber floorings are isolated to old designs only. While the rustic look of solid tongue and groove strip floorings work with the classics, the smooth and perfect ones work best with contemporary designs.
Solid Timber Flooring is also fashion-proof. This means that no matter what the trend may be, you can expect that solid timber floor will still stand out. Timber also has the characteristic to improve colour over time. Therefore, like wine, you can only expect your floor to improve even after decades.
Another benefit of having solid timber floorings is that it is very easy to clean and maintain. While regular polishing is required to preserve the shine and the colour, the everyday requirements of solid timber floors are very minimal. Just a little sweeping will go a long way and you can be sure that your floor is presentable all the time.
Not only in Australia but also in other parts of the globe, Timber remains one of the most highly renewable trees. Hence, the use of timber does not denude the forests. In fact, companies like Sydney Timber Flooring joins the campaigns in planting more trees. And as governed by rules on the use of wood, the use of these materials encourages more people and institutions to plant even more trees.
Most solid timber floorings are installed as sub-floors, meaning they are installed above old concrete or tiled floors. As a result, it makes it easier to install plumbing accessories or wirings in below the timber flooring.
Solid timber floorings are installed using specialized nails. They can be installed using battens over a concrete slab, timber joists over bearer, to plywood over joists or strip flooring over joists. Let the experts decide on which method is the most effective for your space.
