WOOD FLOORING FAQs

Who are Natural Collections?

At Smart Tiles we have supplied tiles and wood flooring for many years. The Natural Collections brand encompasses our extensive range of quality European Engineered and Solid wood flooring.

What is the difference between Solid and Engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring contains a veneer of solid wood on the surface supported by a cross ply or multi-layered core. Wooden floors with an engineered construction can be up to 75% more stable than a traditional solid wood floor. Engineered wood floors resist warping, buckling and cracking, even as the temperature and humidity changes throughout the seasons. This construction builds a perfectly balanced wood floor that can tolerate the most dramatic climate changes.

Where can I view the Natural Collections ranges?

A selection of the Natural Collection ranges are contained on this website. To view our wood flooring portfolio pop into our stunning wood flooring showroom in Kendal, Cumbria. This allows you to browse our beautiful wood floors at your leisure and take samples as and when you need.

Can I get samples of your wood flooring?

Yes, to receive samples of our wood floors you can pop into the Smart Tiles Natural Collections showroom and take away any samples you require.

Can I order my wood flooring through your website?

At Natural Collections we believe that a wood floor should be viewed in person so as you can see and feel the textures and grain of the floor. For this reason we advise that you should view all the ranges in our Kendal wood flooring showroom or if you would like to order, just give us a call.

How long should the wood flooring acclimatise for once it has been delivered?

We recommend going by the manufacturers recommendations.

Is wood flooring suitable for underfloor heating?

Most of our engineered wood floorings are a perfect solution for underfloor heating due to it’s multi-layer ply or poplar core up to 27 degrees. This allows your wood flooring to be laid over the top of your underfloor heating with ease.
