Styles and species

There are different kinds of wood species that the timber flooring is made from. Depending on the room color and the style of a house, you can choose from the varieties that are available. The oak timber species are the great choice in houses with modern or contemporary designs. The timber flooring in Melbourne is known for its fine grains which provide a warm environment.

The Australian timber species possess a uniquely Australian look.

Solid timber flooring vs engineered flooring

Apart from the styles and species, there are basically two types of flooring to choose from. The solid flooring is manufactured from solid lumber and looks best in the formal dining area and the living room. Since it is made from a natural material, the flooring can react to changes in temperature and it has a tendency to shrink or expand. Thus, it is not good in high moisture areas.

On the other hand, the engineered timber flooring is more affordable than the solid timber. This is because the engineered timber type of flooring is made-up of different layers. There are layers of plywood and then the upper most layer is made from real hardwood. The different layers provide longevity and toughness even in high foot traffic areas.

Timber flooring is very easy to maintain and possesses a hypo allergenic quality. Thus it is great for those who suffer from allergies. In addition, it gives a warm and comfortable feeling to any home.
