A conservatory is usually used as a place to relax and unwind so you will want luxury flooring that can withstand the demanding conditions. Conservatories have a large number of windows and roof glazing so the temperatures inside can vary greatly. In the summer months the humidity and temperatures can rise significantly. Whereas, in the wintertime the room can become very cold with a low humidity. You will need a floor that can cope with these extreme changing conditions.
Can I use hardwood flooring in my conservatory?
Yes, you can use hardwood flooring in your conservatory. It will need to be engineered hardwood (not solid wood), as this is more stable and effective in coping with changes in temperature. Planks of engineered wood flooring have been developed and designed to be able to adapt to their surroundings without becoming damaged. There are many colours and styles of engineered wood flooring to choose from, so there is sure to be something to suit your conservatory.
