Wood is a timeless natural resource that adds value to any interior. As a flooring solution, it offers a durable, elegant finish to complement a host of styles and design schemes. We chatted to the Managing Director of Castro Wood Floors, Claudio De Araujo, about what sets their brand of flooring apart from the rest.

Here we share five reasons to choose wood floors:

1. The ideal seasonal flooring

Wooden floors are versatile and a perfect choice in almost any room, no matter the season or weather. In fact, in winter, wood adds warmth and depth to a colder space and in summer, wood flooring is cool and can help to make a room feel more comfortable and moderated.

2. Sustainability is key

As a natural resource, wood is a sustainable, renewable product. It grows naturally, and modern forestry standards ensure that it is harvested accordingly and in a sustainable way. We need to do everything in our power to ensure that wood is responsibly sourced and used within the industry. Castro Wood Floors are FSC certified meaning that they look after the forestry and for every tree cut down, they plant a new one.

3. Wood flooring offers variety

Modern wood flooring presents a world of options to suit the consumer. No longer limited to particular sizes and variations of wood, certified suppliers can offer a host of possibilities to complement a variety of spaces. At Castro Wood Flooring you will find options on widths ranging from 120mm-250mm and thickness from 11,5mm-21mm, with various veneer thicknesses from 2,5mm-6mm. This gives you the right to select the perfect option to suit your needs.
