When it comes to large interior spaces, you really need to think about 28mm thick floorboards. They can provide a great service for a wide range of applications and this is because their thickness enables them to provide a firm, solid base on which the rest of the room can be built. In many cases the room will be divided into smaller areas and these will all have different requirements. In order to make sure you have the right type of support for each then you need to pay attention to the individual requirements of the space. This ensures that your choice of floorboard will not just be suitable for the room you have, but also for the other rooms in the building.
There are several different types of spaces. You need to ensure that the floors can cope with the needs of whatever room you are decorating. The thickness of the floorboards will depend upon the amount of weight you expect the room to have. It will also be affected by the way in which you intend to use the room. For example, areas where people will be sitting and relaxing may need slightly sturdier floors. Likewise, areas where heavy furniture is likely to be placed may require thicker floors.
You should think about the fact that floorboards come in a variety of colours. This means you can match them to the rest of the decor in your room. There are some more traditional designs that go well with more conservative styles of decoration. There are also more modern designs which are very popular with those who want to present an air of luxury. Whatever your tastes there are designs available to suit you?
Most floorboards will provide a lip on each side so they are able to be mounted on either side. These are called ‘flanked’ floorboards and they provide additional stability. Some types of board may have tongues and grooves built into them, so you will need to think about whether or not you are likely to feel comfortable having them in your home.
Floorboards will usually be made from wood and as a result can have many different finishes. If you have young children they may well like the wooden finishes with painted tips. Others may prefer the glossy finish. You will also need to take into account the type of stain that is used.
You need to decide if you want a natural wood finish or one containing a protective coating. This will depend on your particular geographical location. If you live in a temperate country climate then you should not need to worry about this. It will, however, be more problematic if you live in a colder climate where the wood will freeze in the winter. If you live in a tropical area then it is important to avoid using any wood products that contain any type of water base, such as varnish or paint. These may simply seep into the wood and cause damage to the wood.
Once you have decided the type of finish you require, it is time to consider the size and shape of the boards. As they will need to fit into the space you have available, ensure you get accurate measurements when you start. Some people think that it is important to allow for ventilation when you are working on a large area. Whilst this is true, it is not necessary. With some simple planning you can provide all the air that your new floors will require, while ensuring that they are not obstructed.
You should plan how you will position the boards as well as how you will support them once they are in place. You may need to hire extra help to carry out these tasks. It is possible to purchase ready-made planks which can be fixed in most rooms. Others however, may want to add a little something extra. This can be achieved with some careful planning.
