Engineered timber or "planks" are bringing a new dimension to flooring in New Zealand homes. Popular in the northern hemisphere, wooden floors are catching on here now, and are especially popular with kiwis who love New Zealand 's unique natural environment.
Timber floors are hard wearing, low maintenance and eco-friendly, coming from sustainable forests....but which to choose? Here's a professional's tips....
- Light woods bring a fresh, spacious feel to your living spaces as the finish shows off the grain and detail beautifully.
- Mid toned woods can be the perfect match for rooms with neutral colour schemes and similar toned fixtures.
- Dark woods offer a rich, dense colour which can add warmth and make any room feel more indulgent and inviting.
With a variety of plank widths, and finishes, including hand scraped wood, there is something for everyone in this unique flooring finish. If you are refurbishing your house or building a new one, timber floors can bring a new dynamic to your decor and atmosphere.
