The popularity of solid wood flooring has increased dramatically since laminate flooring burst onto the market some years ago. Until fairly recently, solid wood floors were only seen in large traditional houses, stately homes and generally much older buildings, such as golf clubs. However, once laminated flooring became a popular choice in residential dwellings, it was only a matter of time before the solid wood floor would again be fashionable.
Our modern preference of open space living, minimalist contemporary concepts, and the appeal of natural materials has certainly assisted the growth of the solid wood flooring market. As a result, the ease of availability and healthy competition has also made the product an affordable option for the majority of people.
