For a longest time I have wanted wooden flooring, not only is it easier to keep clean than carpet but it is also a lot more durable when you have children and pets.
I decided we would switch from our light grey carpet in the living room after removing a rug and realising that said light grey rug was in fact a complete different colour than when first purchased! It had had that many spills and clean up attempts that I knew it would never look the same again.
Deciding on the flooring was pretty easy as I love the look of aged oak, there is something log cabin about it. That cosy feel of something that might have been handmade, a cosy look but clean and welcoming too. There are so many different kinds of wooden flooring options and the one that interested me most was https://lifestyleflooringuk.co.uk/engineered-wood-flooring. We have had laminates before but engineered wood is constructed from several layers of high quality materials. Thus making the floors durable and easy to maintain, they are compatible with underfloor heating and sustainable too which is always one of my requirements.
With options including oak, ash, beech, walnut and maple there is literally something for everyone and I love flooring with character, where the wood has been given an aged appearance. Distressing or hand scraping the boards gives the look of wear and tear, making it feel like the flooring is an integral part of the home, as though it has always been there. That is the kind of look I love.
One of my main concerns when it comes to using wood for anything is that it is ethically sourced. Lifestyle Flooring UK source their timber from countries within Europe from sustainable forests and the flooring is even constructed using eco friendly techniques. This ticks all the boxes for me, its not just about the flooring its about having the peace of mind that something in my home was created without harming the environment etc too.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
