Our Approach

In the two and a half decades that we have been trading, we have fine-tuned our bespoke system so we can offer clients a floor to suit their personal style and design intent. The end result is a floor tailored to your exact specification and budget, using a wide range of colour, size, pattern and texture options.

So how does it work? Beginning at our collection page, choose a featured colour palette and click on a swatch to see the options available. Details about sizes, prices and technical specifications can be found by clicking the info and prices button.

Here you can also ask us a question or order a sample.

Of course, timbers need to be seen in real life to be truly appreciated.

For the next step, visit one of our showrooms or book a virtual video consultation to discuss your project. A member of our sales team will guide you step by step to choose your ultimate floor and talk you through the installation process.

From this point, we can conduct site-surveys and generate quotations.

Sustainable Floors

No other issue has been at the forefront of the design industry as sustainability. As a custodian of a natural product, we cannot evade this matter. We, both supplier and consumer, must preserve and protect our woods for future generations.

The majority of our timber collections are certified with the FSC® or PEFC chain of custody standard. Those that are certified are labelled as such on this website. These international organisations promote responsible forest management and connect responsible practices to consumers.

Sourcing certified materials is a fantastic first step towards ‘green living’.

Solid Floor searched for ethical floorboard manufacturing and found two innovative timber mills, based in Europe and South America.

When we purchase from these timber mills, we ascertain that ecological sustainable production processes are being used in manufacturing your floor.

We believe that our timber suppliers’ on-going investments and innovations will benefit us all, and we are proud to be actively supporting their businesses.

Our Team

Good work practices and environments produce superior service.

We are proud to have a team of people who have been with us for many years. Our combined experience in the flooring industry is vast and wide-ranging. We all share an interest in design, architecture, and a love of timber surfaces in particular. Both in the showroom or on site, we will go the extra mile to find solutions and help you realise your project to the highest standard.
