It’s probably 50 years ago that the most popular option for flooring in a house would be timber flooring. Maybe the reason for that, 50 years ago, was that there weren’t a lot of other options. Over time, synthetic flooring materials have been introduced and floors made of wood have taken a bit of a back seat. Tiles and carpets became super popular as both conservationists and cost relegated timber floors much lower on the desirable scale.
More recently though, timber flooring has been making a comeback and gaining favour with homeowners. Now, the problem is more one of choice and for consumers to decide what is the most appropriate product for their homes.
Lots of different types of timber can be used for your floors and it’s a matter of personal preference. For example, oak flooring adds beauty to your home with its rich texture. But there are many choices such as blackbutt, jarrah, karri, Tassie oak, and even bamboo. Before making a final decision, you should at least look at all the options.
