Floor Fac­tory in­tro­duce a new range of stun­ning wood floors made by Wood­pecker

Noth­ing gives a space that warm, com­fort­able feel­ing quite like a beau­ti­ful wood floor does. It can re­mind you of time spent out­doors ad­mir­ing a wood­land scene or a bare­foot walk among the trees with their scent on the air and soft fo­liage un­der your feet. Wood­pecker woods, now avail­able at Floor Fac­tory in Derby, bring that sense of be­ing close to na­ture into your home.

Once in­stalled, a solid wood floor soon be­comes a liv­ing, breath­ing part of your sur­round­ings, ra­di­at­ing its warmth and feel­ing con­fi­dent un­der your feet. Wood­pecker solid woods are made from hard­woods such as oak and wal­nut and come from re­spon­si­bly man­aged forests in Europe or the Amer­i­cas. Each board is en­gi­neered from a sin­gle piece of care­fully cho­sen tim­ber and then en­hanced through a range of dif­fer­ent fin­ishes which bring out the char­ac­ter in the wood’s nat­u­ral tex­ture.

To the naked eye, en­gi­neered wood floor­ing has all the nat­u­ral beauty of solid wood - in­trigu­ing tex­tures, rich and sub­tle colours and gor­geous fin­ishes. But the way the boards are con­structed means they are much more ver­sa­tile and prac­ti­cal for the modern home. With cen­tral heat­ing or un­der­floor heat­ing, solid woods can eas­ily dry out and be­come warped. Ex­pand­ing and con­tract­ing can also be an is­sue. En­gi­neered wood is de­signed to over­come these prob­lems. Also, by choos­ing this op­tion you can do your bit for the en­vi­ron­ment as it helps the tree go fur­ther by us­ing less solid wood.
