Solid beech flooring offers a strong and attractive wood, pale in colour but available in a variety of shades, tones and styles. There is a choice between having very few markings or a number of them, as well as between textured and smooth finishes or even unfinished varieties. These floors can come with bevelled edges to provide extra surface definition and 20-year warranties.
Unfinished Beech Solid Flooring
Those choosing unfinished beech solid wood flooring can pick between three products, each of which comes with a surface that new owners can apply their own finish to according to personal taste.
What each product also has in common are plank thicknesses of 21 mm, widths of 128 mm, beveled edges and 20-year warranties. Differences include those of appearance, with the Nature Unfinished product having a slightly darker shade and notable markings, the Rustic version having knots and the Select unfinished flooring having far less prominent markings.
Lacquered Beech Solid Flooring
Lacquered beech solid flooring provides extra toughness, a light-reflective sheen and ease of cleaning. There are three products in the range, each of which is slightly different in appearance, with the rustic having wood knots, the Nature product coming with prominent band markings and the Select being carefully chosen for a lack of highly-visible features.
The products all come with 128 mm wide and 21 mm thick planks, bevelled edges to provide extra visual definition to the surface, a smooth finish and a 20-year warranty.
European Beech Flooring
Those who prefer European beech flooring to any other source of the wood find the wood is pale and attractive, with a choice of markings between the minimalist effects of the Select products through to the knots of the Rustic floors and the bands of the Nature items. The products can come with smooth or textured finishes, while all of them have 20-year warranties, beveled edges and planks that are 21 mm thick and 128 mm wide.
Oiled Solid Beech Flooring Oiled
For those who like their solid beech flooring oiled, there are two products to choose between. The main difference between these is in the appearance, with the former having more prominent banding marks. The floors both have textured surfaces and natural oil added to increase a sense of warmth in the material.
Both come with beveled edges, planks of 128 mm width and 21 mm thickness and 20-year warranties.
Solid Rustic Beech Hardwood Flooring
There are currently three solid rustic beech hardwood flooring products to pick from and each of these contains prominent markings, with large knots and notable colour variations being apparent. There is a trio of types to pick between, these being the lacquered version for a shiny surface and extra toughness, the oiled version for warmth and the unfinished for those who prefer to add their own final touches according to taste.
Each item in the range has beveled edges to produce a more visually prominent floor, 128 mm wide and 21 mm thick planking and a 20-year warranty.
