Bleached wood named top flooring trend

According to flooring expert Johnny Lee, writing for the website influencive.com, bleached wood is one of the top five flooring trends.

Wood flooring uses natural wood such as oak, which comes in a variety of shades, from dark to light. If consumers want other colours, they can stain the wood. When treated with bleach, the colour of the wooden floor planks is lightened, and a less glossy finish is created.

Most areas in the UK have a very mixed climate, with many dull days. Bleached wood floors look as though they have been bleached by the sun and remind people of life in warmer climates, away from the rain and dull light of the UK weather.

Bleached wood floors can be installed in bedrooms, as well as living rooms. These wooden planks are available in both engineered and solid wood. Engineered wood is more moisture resistant than solid wood, so it’s suitable for bathrooms and kitchens. It is also less expensive and quicker to install than solid wood, though many households prefer the more natural solid wood.

Whether households choose engineered or solid wood flooring for their Cheshire or Wirral rooms, bleached wood is a good option to create a lighter feel in rooms. Local wood flooring sellers and installers can provide a selection of bleached wood samples.

A hardwood floor can add value to a home, so some or all of the cost of the floor can be recouped when the property is sold.
