Timber doesn’t have to be yellow!

Good Morning!!

Timber floors are something that most of us have in our homes, but lets be honest the vast majority is oak, that possibly has a yellow tint to it. Well I want to show you that there are other options out there.

Parquet / Herringbone

I love parquet flooring, and I think that it can work in most interiors. You don’t have to have a 3 storey Georgian house for this beautiful floor to work. Here are some examples of Herringbone floors and Parquet Floors. Some are a bit quirkier than other. 🙂Pic 2

I’m sorry, but how cool are these painting timber floors. Ok, I agree that this might be too adventurous for a lot of people, but it could look unbelievable in a hallway.

When selecting a timber floor, most people will want something neutral that will work with pretty much everything and that last for the long term. And I totally agree with this, however, American Oak is one of the most popular floors out there, but this has a very distinctive yellow tone, which does not work with everything. Quite the opposite.

So, a much better option is to go for a paler oak, liked a limed or white washed oak. This is a much more natural wood tone, and is a much more neutral palette.

I hope that we will make you consider your choice of timber floor that bit more in the future, as it really is a key element to any interior.
