Wooden Flooring Widths
Our natural oak wood flooring ranges in width from 140mm to 300mm. Both our solid hardwood flooring and engineered planks come in two different styles, marked by their widths. Strip flooring and plank flooring are both available at 3 Oak Flooring to meet diverse requirements and provide a different aesthetic.
1. Strip flooring
This is the style of flooring that makes a room feel larger and gives the illusion of additional space. Traditionally, it was the only option available for timbered floors and is still the most widely used in both domestic and commercial installations. Strip flooring is used in new builds to add a sophisticated and linear style to narrow rooms. The addition of a top layer of colour or a clear finish enhances the contemporary look of this classic wooden floor. Strip flooring uses narrower boards that are commonly less than 3” wide.
2. Plank flooring
This flooring is distinguished by the use of wide boards. Plank flooring gives bigger areas a cozy and rustic feel while retaining the same linear effect as strip flooring. Each board is 3”-8” wide which can make large rooms feel more intimate. Due to the broad width, plank flooring tends to be unsuitable for small rooms. Wider boards tend to make the space appear narrow and constricted.
Regardless of which option you choose, 3 Oak Wooden Flooring provides the most cost-effective solid wood flooring in the UK. We can deliver and professional install your new hardwood floor using one of three methods:
- Floating: An initial layer of wood is attached to the existing subfloor with underlay tape before the new hardwood floor is laid on top. The tongue and groove boards are secured with a thin layer of PVA glue.
- Secret Nailing: The boards are nailed to the wooden joists or subfloor and further secured with nails in the board grooves. Once the tongue is inserted, the nails are entirely hidden.
- Glueing: The hardwood boards are affixed directly to the subfloor with a layer of adhesive
