Posted by on 9:46 am in Company News | Comments Off on Solid vs Engineered Oak Flooring

The choice between these highly in demand commodities is always present. There are a few differences in terms of durability and longevity, while in appearance not so many. Even though there is nothing like real wood, the way of processing the engineered wood makes the planks suitable for harsh conditions and traffic. Yet, depending on what the original timber is - the solid wood planks can vary in durability. This is valid for both products as the top layer of the engineered wood bears the same qualities of the real wood. In terms of...

Wallpapered Stairs

Posted by on 10:33 am in Company News | Comments Off on Wallpapered Stairs

"Most people think that wallpaper is just for walls. But you can wallpaper almost anything - including a staircase that needs sprucing up. If you want to give some colour to your home, wallpapering the step risers is a great way to do it. Light up the boring stairwell by adding extra style and life to this area. Go for different shapes and geometric designs in similar tones and shades, but with a visible difference in each following step. Do not fear to combine incompatible colours, as the contrast is exceptionally appealing nowadays. Play...

White Washed Or Limed Effect Floors

Posted by on 8:22 am in Company News | Comments Off on White Washed Or Limed Effect Floors

Everything that is white or lighter in colour is believed to add visual space to otherwise small rooms - that is what architects swear by. And in this the reason why those shades are on the rise of modern floor designs. Customers are looking to expand the restricted areas they live in and add a little bit more space everywhere they can. In the past years, the whitewashing of the floors was done for the sole purpose of protection. The layer was prepared with a mixture of chalk and calcium chloride.

Engineered And Real Wood Vs Laminate Flooring

Posted by on 7:57 am in Company News | Comments Off on Engineered And Real Wood Vs Laminate Flooring

One the main reasons to choose laminate over the real wood is the price. Laminate is a very cheap source material and keeps low rates and fast installation. Yet, there a few things to consider. The final printed image is not to be changed over the course of time, and the longevity of the flooring is disputable. Once installed, it cannot be treated to be brought to life. It must be fully reinstalled. On the other hand, the engineered wood is a little bit more expensive but can be re-sanded and stained if need be. And we are all aware of the...
