Easy Ways to Protect Your Timber Floor From Water Damage

Timber is a classic and durable material that makes for excellent flooring in any home. Its sturdiness, however, has some limitations and you should know that water is its number one enemy.

You may not realise it, but seemingly harmless activities at home that involve water, such as mopping, can gradually wear down your wooden floor. Little spills and humid indoor air pose the same threat.

The Floor Venue team have come together to round up some tips that will help protect your timber floor:

Use Rugs

This may be the easiest thing to do. Place rugs in areas around the house where spills and other water-related dilemmas are more likely to happen. These include the kitchen, dining area and bathroom doorway. Similarly, place a rug in front of appliances where there are water leakages, such as refrigerators and air conditioners.

Seal it

Make your timber flooring resistant to water by coating it. Coating finishes seals the wood, preventing it from absorbing water and moisture. You may also wax the floor. But before applying it, make sure that the wax suit the type of finish. Some finishes, such as urethane-based products, react adversely with wax, making the reapplication of a coating necessary on an almost yearly basis.

Clean it Properly

Cleaning the wood floor properly will surely extend its life, but do not use harsh materials, such strong detergents and chemicals. Doing so heightens the risk of staining. Do not resort to power washing when dealing with stubborn stains. Call in a professional instead.

Fix the Plumbing

Constant leaks can damage your timber floors. Address this issue by having your plumbing system fixed. Fix the broken pipes in the bathroom and kitchen. Similarly, fix your appliances that have water running in them, such as refrigerators, air conditioners and dishwashers.

The effects of water damage can be very difficult to remedy, so it would be practical to carry out simple measures to protect your timber floor.

Adding Flare To Your Floor

Style inside the home: some says it is in the design of the walls, while some rally that it is all in the light. Some revert to the tired argument of the palette; some say it all lies in the furniture and accessories used. What everyone seems to be forgetting, however, is the power of the floor to bring in an unexpected token of style.

Everybody is leaning towards hardwood floors these days, and it really is not that hard to see why. Hardwood floors are cost-efficient, durable and flexible. Some grains are also quite versatile that you can actually mix it up with other materials for a unique design flare.

Geometric Patterns

Maple hardwood is beautiful in its own right, but becomes a completely different sight with the addition of wenge wood planks in a geometric pattern. It could easily be the design focus of a room and a design separation or marker between the hall and the main room.

Mix and Match

With that said, you shouldn’t feel tied down to just one flooring option. Mix different elements with different textures and contrasts, like hardwood and vinyl. Be creative in the ways you mix them and do not let boundaries and lines stop you from creating visual interest.

Paint a Pattern…

If mixing two flooring options is too much work for you, just grab a paintbrush and get to painting. A plain hardwood floor can look Moroccan-inspired with the right colour and stencil. You can also mimic the chevron pattern in tiles or the elegance of marble depending on the vibe you are going for.

Or Paint it Black

When in doubt, go black. If executed and finished right, the room will look sophisticated and even feel sexy. Don’t worry about the room looking dark; with the right lighting and accessories, it is going to look straight out of a magazine.

Visual Variation

Again, you can never really go wrong with timber floors. Just have them installed in unique patterns. Not only is this visually interesting, it also muffles scratches and stains. You can also consider adding a hint of colourful tiles for visual variation.

If you need help with your floor, Floor Venue is the name to trust. We offer exceptionally high-quality products produced by selected, local and global suppliers. From timber flooring to porcelain tiles, we have it all in our catalogue.

Laminate Flooring For Your New Home

When you’re building a new home, there seems to be an endless amount of design and functional decisions that need to be made. An increasingly popular choice is laminate flooring, and with the many benefits attached to it, it’s easy to see why.

So what do you need to know before you take the plunge and order some quality laminate flooring to grace the walkways of your new home? We’ve laid out some of the key points of importance to your decision process.

  1. More durable than your average floor. While many natural timbers can be susceptible to scratches, dents, and the general wear and tear of everyday life, laminate floors prove to be more difficult to mark. That’s because they’re engineered to withstand the heaviest impact, being extremely scratch resistant. It also means that spills and stains can’t get friendly with your floors as easily, with most cleaning a breeze.
  2. Easy to install. Building and moving into a new home is enough of a hassle in itself, but you can be comforted by the fact that laminate flooring is incredibly easy to install. Our floorboards utilise the patented Unilic and Valinga systems and are designed to click together easily, sitting on top of underlay, without adhesive. This makes installation time incredibly short and cost-effective. Of course, you can also hire a professional to handle your laminate flooring installation, if you want even further peace of mind.
  3. Design and colour options are endless. You’ll find that laminate flooring is incredibly versatile, with designs and colours to match the scheme of pretty much every home’s individual motif. The colour scale moves through various shades of light and dark browns, glorious reds, smart greys, cream washes and sophisticated charcoals, and so much more. In other words, finding laminate flooring that will suit your new home is not an issue you’ll need to worry about.
