6 Rooms That Wood Floors Are Perfect For

With the undeniable quality, style and longevity on offer, it’s no surprise that almost everyone wants wood floors in their home. Sometimes, it’s just a case of deciding where they would work best.

The good news is that wood floors can be used practically anywhere. In this post, we’ll provide a bit of inspiration by looking at some different rooms that wood floors are perfect for.

1. Hallway

Wood floors are an incredible choice for hallways. With its primary use of passing through, hallways are high traffic by nature. A hard-wearing wood floor can prevent your hallway from becoming worn and messy.

But that’s not all. The luxury style of a wooden floor can also set off the hallway’s design, providing an impressive entranceway into your home.

2. Dining room

Dining rooms provide a dedicated space for some of the most important moments – from family breakfasts and evening meals to dinner parties and festive meals.

A wood floor can take that to the next level. They complement wooden dining tables beautifully, adding a touch of opulence to any occasion. Wood floors are also more hygienic than their alternatives, so any dropped food, crumbs or spillages will be easier to clean.

3. Lounge

With its natural graining and depth, real wood flooring is a great way to add warmth to a room. Nowhere is that more appreciated than the lounge.

Wood floors contrast the softness of your sofa to provide a delicate balance of textures. That can be complemented by a rug to create a gorgeous look and feel in your living space.

4. Kitchen

Natural wood flooring is an amazing alternative to old-fashioned tiles or cheap linoleum in your kitchen. It’s naturally durable for the high-traffic environment. A hard-wearing lacquer will make sure your wood floors can stand up to all the thrills and spills that come with cooking and washing up.

5. Bathroom

Wooden floors can look incredible in a bathroom. However, you’ll need to consider the practicality. While it is possible, we advise a bit more caution with wood floors in bathrooms.

They’ll need to be properly treated to protect them from water. That means applying hard wax or hard wood oil with expert precision, covering every part of your wood floors.

6. Bedrooms

Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It’s where you relax and unwind at the end of every day, getting that all-important good night’s sleep.

Wood floors go hand in hand with this serene environment. Their natural quality makes your bedroom feel more peaceful, but they also add more depth, contrasting all of the soft textures like pillows, duvets, blankets and curtains.
