Who Ever Heard of Sylvawood? Anyone Who Hasn’t Is Missing Out

First of all – and before the technical out there jump on me – there is no wood species called Sylvawood. That said: Sylvawood is one of the most beautiful flooring products in our entire hardwood flooring range.

No, I wasn’t on the bevy last night. Flooring giant Junkers have effectually created a new wood species, well two actually. They have created a gorgeous range of Vacuum fumed Beech, which they call Sylvaket (below left), and (equally if not more gorgeous) a range of Vacuum stained Beech, which they call Sylvared (below right).

Sylvaket Stripboard Harmony

I know I say it all the time, but honestly and as you can see from the images, these flooring ranges are some of the most beautiful floor coverings available anywhere in the world, equally beautiful to marble flooring – in my humble opinion.

The types featured above are Sylvaket Harmony (left) and Sylvared Harmony, also available are:

Sylvared Classic:

Junckers Solid Wood Flooring: Something for All Tastes

When it comes to wood flooring or carpet coverings, the choice is absolutely unbelievable, so much so that it can actually become overwhelming and/or even frustrating. I have known people to go through dozens of samples, only to then hear about another brand name, which they must see, then they have to compare it to all their previous shortlists, etc etc, repeat ad infinitum (well almost).

What I advise these people to do, is choose one brand, that either houses most of the species and finishes they have shortlisted, and/or that has the most wood flooring products within their price range. When it comes to this, one of the main choices is Junkers. The Junckers range is absolutely huge, with some of the most beautiful species and finish combinations we have ever seen. It is also pretty middle-of-the-road where prices are concerned, and comes in a 22mm thick board (in most of its finishes).

Rather than pick the top ones, which is just too difficult for me (I love all my children equally), I will simply give details of the most and least expensive Junkers wood flooring products.

The least expensive is the Junckers Ash Rustical, which has a light finish with a deep lustre and is easily capable of brightening any room. Junckers Ash Rustical is priced at just £30.90 per square meter for 14mm thick boards, and £37.41 per square meter for 22mm thick boards.

Laminate Flooring Vs Engineered Flooring

Someone just asked me the following:

I really want wood flooring, but I am on a very tight budget. I have been looking at your site and decided that I should go either for laminate flooring or engineered flooring, which is best?

Here is how the decision can easily be made:

Where is the floor going to be laid?

If the floor is in the hallway, where people come in from outside, then laminate flooring is the best bet, because it is the most resistant to damage. Laminate flooring is basically a photo of a wood panel under a thick laminate sheet.

If the floor is in the living room, or any other room that will be shown off, then engineered is the best bet because it is the closest of the two to a real wood floor. Engineered flooring is a surface layer of real wood up to a quarter inch thick, with engineered layers of ply underneath.

Do you have young children?For much the same reason as above, laminate flooring is the best option for many people with young children. Not only is it resistant to damage, but it is also easy to clean should they have an “accident” with a crayon or felt tip pen.

Do you have under-floor heating, dampness or extreme climatic changes?

Engineered flooring is capable of expansion and contraction when it is necessary. In fact it is the only wood flooring product with this capability. As we know that changes in temperature cause
