The Florence range on the UK Flooring Direct site features both engineered and solid oak flooring. While you may be more familiar with solid oak flooring, engineered flooring is nowadays a more popular choice as it’s both cheaper and more stable than solid oak flooring while being substantially cheaper. Florence engineered oak flooring takes a thin surface layer of high quality rustic or nature oak, usually around a few millimetres thick, and fixes it to a thicker section made of a highly durable, cheaper wood material such as HDF or pine-spruce plywood cores. The end result is a 100% wood floor with an identical look and feel to a solid oak floor.
Florence engineered oak flooring features both rustic and nature grade oak wear layers with some diverse styles available. While exclusively oak is used in the Florence oak flooring range, the application of various stains including cocoa, eclipse, antique and polar, and the varying finishes given to the wood such as a brushed finish, a satin lacquer or a matt lacquer give a wide array of styles that has something for everyone. Most Florence engineered oak flooring features the easy click system for installation making it simple for anyone to lay saving you money on flooring layers and starting at just £13.24 sq.m, Florence flooring makes it possible for anyone to afford a stunning oak floor.
