What is Herringbone Flooring ?
Herringbone Flooring is the increasingly popular style of flooring which brings back an old, traditional style creating a zig zag pattern updated with modern styles and colours. At Floor Store Direct we have the largest selection of Herringbone Flooring in Ireland. Whether you want a traditional woodblock, modern engineered or a more affordable laminate herringbone.
Why Should I Buy A Solid Floor ?
Solid Floors may be on the decline since the arrival of underfloor heating and the increase of engineered floors but there are still some things you can only get from real timber. As you would expect from the name, solid wood is real timber throughout the board with no plywood or any other backing. A solid floor is completely unrivalled when it comes to that warm feeling underfoot. And is still available in numerous timbers. Going forward, you can sand and re varnish your solid floor which will restore it to its original colour and because your floor is solid throughout you will have an unending amount of sandings in your floor. Solid floors should be either glued down or the more traditional nail down. When being fitted and don’t forget to allow your floor time to acclimatise in your home.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
The cleaning and maintenance of a solid floor is similar to all wood flooring. A sweep of a brush is all it should take to remove light dirt from your floor. For mopping, it is important you use a damp mop rather than a wet mop. If your floor is too wet, over time it may cause issues from water penetrating the joints. Our Clean Green Cleaner is what we recommend for use on all our floors along with our Magi Floor Mop (both of which are available by clicking the relevant links).
Installation method: glue down.
