How Often Does Your Floor Need Oiling?

For domestic use, we urge to oil hardwood floors every 2 decades, you may want to do this earlier depending on how much your flooring is used.

This also adds another layer of security from daily foot traffic or day-to-day mishaps that may damage your flooring.

If you're purchasing a variety of flooring which comes oiled, we recommend oiling the floor again once it's been laid.

This is because your floors might have been stored for quite a few months, and maybe a little dry. Re-staining your new floors tops up the small moisture that's necessary. As a result, you might also add more color to the finish and increase its durability.

Installing Wood Flooring On Walls

Although installing wood flooring on walls may seem like a crazy notion, there's no reason whatsoever that timber flooring can not be utilized effectively and imaginatively to clad walls. If you're looking for a natural and slightly unusual wood clad design to your area, wood flooring installed onto your walls might prove to be your perfect solution.

The impact of using wood floors on walls can be very stunning and may add either a modern or traditional look to your room, based on which species of wood that you choose and how you choose to put in it.

One important issue to bear in mind however, before even considering installing wood flooring on your own wall, is that the base on which you will match the flooring is stable. The reason for this is the wood flooring has to be staggered when it's fitted, so it only can not be fitted within an unstable surface whereby the planks can't be secured along their entire length. Installing plywood on your wall prior to fitting the wood flooring into the wall makes the perfect, stable surface.

When it comes to installing the wood flooring onto your wall, you'll want to determine whether you want it to be set up vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. Diagonal installation probably isn't an ideal method for DIY-ers,

If you're planning to set up your hardwood floors horizontally in your wall, it is important to set up a level starting point. You can do so by marking a line the width of one plank above the floor. The same goes for vertical setups, where you start one plank-width in from each wall. Nailing the wood flooring in place is the very best method of securing it to the plywood.

When you've completed your cladding, you can fill any nail holes with wood filler. Thereafter, it's a case of trimming the wood flooring and finishing it with your preferred finishing option. To finish the project, you can trim the timber with your preferred kind of trim.

Another powerful idea for utilizing hardwood floors on walls is to use it as a bed-head. Only create the form you need and fix it to the wall. With this option, you can have as straightforward or extravagant a bed-head because you want, in a fraction of the cost of purchasing a pre-made equivalent.
