How wood grades can help you style your home

Choosing your flooring is without a doubt a difficult decision with many factors influencing your choice. One of the biggest influences is the overall style aesthetic that you are trying to achieve. A floor made from real wood can have an enormous impact on your décor based on the wood grade that you choose. In this blog post, find some incredible inspiration from some of our customers!


Create a natural vibe with a rustic grade


In recent years, a huge trend in interior design has been the theme of nature. Incorporating leafy plants and green tones to your space will create a relaxing and calming environment, perfect for the bedroom or the living room. A rustic grade floor would help you create this style in your home thanks to the natural colour variation that it boasts, capturing the authenticity of real wood. This grade of flooring has visible knots and grains which further add to the natural, rustic appeal of the wood.

Design a sleek interior with a prime grade


Modern, contemporary styles are often closely linked with minimalism and sleek finishes. Clean, sharp elements are preferred to busy, overcluttered spaces. In order to achieve this style with your flooring, we recommend choosing a prime grade product. These floors have been specifically treated in order to eradicate any visible knots, grains and imperfections so the final effect is clean and smooth.

Return to a traditional style with a distressed grade


Choosing a distressed floor is not for the faint-hearted! Distressed floors are a bold choice as not only are knots and grains visible, they are celebrated! Distressed wood highlights its knots, blemishes and imperfections to create the most authentic feel possible. Combined with gorgeous wooden furniture, a distressed-grade floor will create a traditional and authentic feel in your home.
