So, you have chosen your perfect Main Company kitchen lets not forget about important touches like tiles and flooring, but have you considered using wood flooring throughout your kitchen?
At The Main Company we are passionate about wood. Available in an abundance of grains and shades, each plank brings natural beauty and warmth to your space and offers a versatile choice, complementing both modern and traditional cabinetry.
Benefits of using wood flooring in your kitchen
One of the things we love the most about wood, is that like a fine wine, it often gets better with age. Each plank is meticulously handcrafted and enhanced in our Yorkshire workshops, bringing out unique features and ensuring that it will last for years to come. The natural markings and original nail holes can also act as the perfect disguise for any future wear, as they will blend perfectly into the natural charm and character of the wood. Wood provides a highly durable surface for your kitchen and not only have we fitted wood flooring in a number of our kitchens, we have also used it throughout a number of commercial spaces too as it is made to last and withstand heavy footfall.
When speaking with our customers, one of the things many people like about wood flooring is that it can be used in all downstairs rooms and even upstairs, to create continuity from room to room, this is especially popular in more open plan spaces. Wood flooring is also useful in living spaces for allergy sufferers, as carpets can collect dust and pet hairs. Wood flooring is also a sustainable option, something that is at the forefront of people’s minds at the moment.
Wood is a classic choice and never goes out of style, so you’re safe in the knowledge that you won’t need to replace it in a couple of years when something new comes along. Adding wooden floors is often seen a desirable feature that can add value to a property in some cases, especially as part of a larger kitchen renovation.
Lastly, tiles are known for being cold under foot so wood flooring makes a much warmer alternative. Not only does it create a cosy, rustic feel, it is much warmer under foot meaning no more cold feet first thing on a morning on the way to the kettle! Our Engineered Wood Flooring is also compatible with underfloor heating if required.
Types of wood flooring
At The Main Company, we provide a variety of wood flooring options, including reclaimed solid wood and engineered wood. From cooler shades to darker shades, we have the perfect flooring for your kitchen. Not only can we supply wood in a variety of widths and lengths, the planks can also be configured in a variety of ways including the popular parquet/ herringbone style.

See our wood flooring in action…
If you’re in any doubt that wood flooring is not a durable choice for a kitchen, think again. At The Main Company we have fitted wood flooring in a number of commercial properties, including restaurants and shops with a high footfall. As part of the Amersham project, we used a variety of parquet flooring and traditional planks, these were paired with other wood features such as a bar area and cladding throughout.
As mentioned earlier, wood is a wonderful choice for those looking to create a sense of continuity throughout their home. Our Black Smoked Oil oak worked perfectly alongside these rich green cabinets, and throughout the downstairs living area in this wonderful family home.
