Flooring is an essential feature of any build in terms of style and comfort. It is also an investment and when we think of options, we look for cost effective, hardwearing yet smooth, natural and warming surface for our home. If you are currently creating an interior for your child’s room and going through flooring options, a few points to consider are: the flooring has to be durable, non-toxic, pleasant to crawl, sit and play on. Ecohardwood Ltd engineered oak flooring is an amazing choice for a kid’s room because of its durability and high quality. It is also made in an eco-friendly manner, which not many flooring manufacturers can offer.
Engineered wooden flooring in a kid’s room: pros and cons
There are many advantages of installing engineered hardwood flooring in a kid’s room which makes it the best choice. It is child-friendly because it is a natural product made of wood and pre-finished with non-toxic stains and oils, easy to clean, very durable, and ideal for underfloor heating.
The production of engineered hardwood flooring starts from high-quality resources. Our manufacturer in Lithuania, UAB Ecowood, purchases oak only from trusted European suppliers. As an official sales office in UK, we are proud to represent a wide spectrum of products that are made using non-toxic materials, such as glue, stains, and oils. All of our production comes in pre-finished with eco-friendly stains and hardwax oil produced by a leading German company SAICOS.
Kids love playing on the floor and often it’s not only a busy playground but also an area where food gets dropped and liquid spilled. Ecohardwood Ltd engineered oak flooring for a kid’s room will bring relief to any parent. Spillages can be easily wiped off and the basic floor cleaning tools include a hoover and a damp cloth. For better results, we recommend using wash care for wooden floors, such as SAICOS production.
No parent wants to replace the flooring after a few years of wearing it and looks for a timeless surface option. Hardwood flooring is a solution to the concern. Even though some of the hardwoods are less durable than others, oak represents maximum strength and can take the beating and dropping better than other species. Due to its construction with a 4.5mm top oak layer, Ecohardwood Ltd flooring can be sanded up to 3 times. The good news is that normally it is totally unnecessary because refreshing the floor by applying colourless hardwax oil every few years is totally sufficient.
Underfloor heating is becoming more and more popular in the UK. It is especially convenient in a child’s room where they will be playing a lot. It is also compatible with engineered hardwood flooring. Many floor suppliers may try to lure you with cheap floor offers in order to make a sale, but don’t get caught up on a good discount. Find the best floor which is suitable to be heated. Ecohardwood Ltd 3-layer engineered oak flooring is produced to ensure maximum stability and is risk-free when laying on underfloor heating. Our sales office is committed to answering any questions you may have regarding installation whether you are planning to have underfloor heating or not.
Not many disadvantages come to mind when it comes to having wooden flooring in a kid’s room. It is a harder surface so it won’t hurt to put a small rug in the room as well if you think that it will help your child to feel more comfortable.
Engineered oak flooring is not always a cheap option, however, in this day and age high quality is the main key to ease your life.
Flooring ideas for a kid’s room
All of us like browsing online or looking at images in interior design magazines to get inspirational design ideas when creating a dream interior. There are no rules and it is up to your own vision what colour or type of flooring you wish to install in your child’s room. Ecohardwood Ltd offers a wide palette for you to choose from.
Warm, honey, natural oak colours, such as Natural Oak, Cask, Pear, Dune, White Transparent, Grey and Pure Nature will make the room cosy and inviting. These colors are very versatile and go with many interior styles, from quirky to more traditional.
If your kid’s room is a modern space with not too many interior details, washed oak and white colours will look best. From our selection, the best fit would be Extra White and Nordic White. One of the main advantages of light colours is that they brighten the space up and make it look visually larger.
For a more traditional ensemble, we recommend choosing a brown hardwood floor palette, which includes Ebony, Antique, Walnut, Rosewood, or even darker options, such as, Anthracite, Brown Coffee or Deep Black. Dark colours can make the whole picture look either more solid or rustic, depending on the rest of the interior.
It is probably best to use hardwood floor planks in a child’s room and leave the parquet to more open spaces, such as the living room. Price-wise it is also cheaper to go for regular board options rather than herringbone or chevron. Unless you have decided to lay parquet throughout the whole property, our company is here to help choose what fits best for you.
