How Solid Wood Flooring is the Ultimate Choice to Elevate Your Living Room

Solid wood flooring; or hardwood as some call it, is the original timber floor. There is no denying it is a stunning piece of craftsmanship. Ultimately, it is a single piece of wood that has been cut from raw material logs. These cut timbers then undergo grading, refinement, and machining as well as additional processes, such as sanding and kiln drying bringing the wood to a specific moisture level suitable for its destination country. The result is an unfinished solid wood floor, sometimes prefinished with lacquer or oil before packaging into boxes for consumer use. It is a very intricate and detailed process where the result is a stunning solid wood floor.

At Mulvey’s we understand that wood is the ultimate choice for creating a luxurious, comforting, and warm space within your home. We offer a diverse range of wood constructions, including solid wood, engineered and laminate featuring stunning patterns like herringbone and chevron.  We recognise that floors are the central and focal points in homes and therefore we work closely with our clients to discuss ideas through to completion and we have a commitment to perfecting the match between style, requirements, and budget, ensuring that every project benefits from the timeless beauty and warmth that wood brings to a home.

Within this post we learn more about the benefits of solid wooden flooring and the reasons why it is the perfect choice for your living space. Solid wood flooring is a great choice for enhancing the aesthetics, style, comfort, and functionality of a living room, offering a range of benefits that contribute to its popularity. Below are some key reasons for choosing solid wood flooring for your living areas with your home.


Solid wood flooring is timeless and elegant due to its aesthetic and authentic beauty.  The natural grain patterns and rich tones create a warm and inviting atmosphere and complements all design styles thus making it a versatile choice. Additionally, the inherent elegance of solid wood flooring not only adds sophistication to your space but also increases the value of your home, serving as a luxurious focal point that enhances the overall appeal of any room.


Durability is one of the key features of solid wood flooring. The fact it is a single, solid piece of timber makes it resilient to wear and tear, therefore a perfect choice for a busy living space. This resilience results in durability and longevity, making it a great investment that stands the test of time. Solid wood’s durability goes beyond its resistance to everyday wear; it offers the flexibility to be refinished multiple times, allowing for a refreshed appearance and extended lifespan, ensuring your flooring remains stunning for years to come.

Low Maintenance

Solid wood floors are low maintenance and are simple to clean, requiring regular sweeping and occasional mopping to keep them looking pristine. They promote a healthier indoor environment in comparison to carpets that trap allergens and dust, which is especially beneficial for those with allergies. The simplicity of maintaining solid wood floors goes hand in hand with their ability to withstand the test of time, offering a hassle-free solution that retains its beauty with minimal effort, making them an ideal choice for households seeking both elegance and ease of upkeep.

Its natural beauty, appeal, style, and durability; make it an attractive feature for potential future buyers and all contribute to the overall market value of your home. A living room that has solid wood flooring is a selling point as it means quality, style, longevity, and sophistication.
