The striking appearance is matched by a long-life expectation that, with the right maintenance, will see the floor provide many years of excellent quality service. The wood comes in thick planks and as it can expand or contract with moisture it must be installed in the correct way to allow it space for small adjustments in size. But as long as this is the case it provides a beautiful centrepiece to a home from a completely organic source, with qualities that artificial flooring may struggle to get near.

Some products may need adhesives added, while others come with peel-back strips that can attach themselves swiftly and easily to the plank above.
