Engineered Walnut Flooring
Although some homes slant towards a modern look and feel both inside and out, many houses suit a rustic style, which is exactly what they can achieve when the homeowner invests in walnut engineered flooring.
Engineered walnut flooring is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly option for anyone looking to achieve a vintage look in their home or office. Walnut has a rich, deep colour that complements light rooms and creates a character of warmth.
Walnut is very durable and is a popular choice for country cottage and rustic interior styles. Engineered walnut flooring works by combining several layers of ply that are glued or heat-pressed to create a strong internal core. The surface veneer consists of around 4mm of solid wood that sits on-top, giving the overall effect of a solid wood floor.
Engineered walnut flooring is also an excellent choice for anyone who has asthma or dust allergies and for areas with high humidity and temperature fluctuations. Additionally, it is offered with either a click-lock or a tongue and groove locking system, both suitable for an easy, fast and cost-effective installation.
Why purchase walnut flooring?
Walnut is exceptionally durable and long-lasting, able to withstand years of use without having to be replaced or repaired, which makes it a savvy investment for any homeowner. It will naturally have to be taken care of during that time, but there is no reason that it cannot last for decades.
In terms of finish, walnut has a naturally rich, dark colour tone to it that can be enhanced by whatever you choose to treat it with, offering a rustic feel to any home, and therefore ensuring that it correlates best with a home with an interior style in that vein already.
The flooring is comprised of planks of multi-layered ply which are more affordable, stable and longer-lasting than solid hardwood flooring options. With a bottom layer chosen for its moisture- and rot-resistant qualities, a strong core layer and a top layer of walnut, homeowners are able to indulge in the best of both worlds as far as affordability and attractiveness are concerned.
Walnut flooring pricing
As a solid hardwood flooring option, walnut would be an expensive wood to invest in, but as it only comprises the top, visible layer of the planks used in an engineered floor, prices become much more affordable. Pricing is calculated according to the area you wish to cover – the bigger the area, the more it will cost.
There are three methods which may be used to install the flooring:
- a floating installation will see the floor propped up on pads rather than nailed or glued down, a technique widely used to reduce noise or vibration throughout flooring
- a nailed-down installation
- a glued-down installation
The method used to install your flooring will depend on the room and your requirements as far as sound vibration is concerned.
