3 Perfect Conservatory Flooring Ideas
1. Engineered Wood Floors
One question we get asked a lot is: ‘Can I use engineered wood flooring in a conservatory?’ – and we are here to say that yes, you can. Real wood flooring can work incredibly well in all areas of your home, but engineered wood is the most popular choice for conservatories.
This is because of its multi-layered composition, which allows the engineered wood to expand and contract more easily when heat and humidity levels rise. Engineered wood is also naturally slip resistant, making it not only an attractive addition, but a safe one.
Our range of engineered wood flooring is vast, but can be sorted into two distinct categories:
Straight planks are a classic and timeless look, and perfect for just about any conservatory – no matter the interior style. Our planks are micro-bevelled along all four sides to create the most uniform look after installation, and increase comfort underfoot.
We offer a wide range of finishes to suit your style preferences, from the smooth and warm tones of our Natural Oak planks or the cool grey hue of our Silver Sands planks, to the rich depths of our Brampton planks.
BROWSE THE FULL RANGE
For those looking for unique or traditional style in a conservatory floor, parquet is the way to go. These designs draw their inspiration from 17th-century France, and consist of smaller planks (known as battens) arranged in striking geometric patterns.
There are a number of different arrangements, but the two we specialise in are herringbone (both Tundra and Deco) and chevron.
Both rely on neat zig-zag layouts to achieve their respective looks, but where chevron suits a modern interior with its straighter formations, herringbone lends itself to more traditional or style-forward interiors, with its interlocked battens and blended formation.

2. Laminate Floors
If you love the look of real wood but are tied to a stricter budget, or perhaps require a little extra water resistance, then laminate flooring is a great alternative to consider. The wood effect is created using high-definition printing technology and textural embossing, combined with our quality plywood bases.
Laminate flooring is not only cost-effective and extra resistant to moisture and mess, it is also very durable and easy to clean, making it an ideal choice for busy families with young children and pets. Choosing laminate floors for your conservatory will make the transition between outdoor and indoor play much easier to manage, and offer up a more forgiving surface that will withstand the day-to-day bumps and spills.

3. Cork Floors
For flooring that really stands out for its uniqueness and qualities, cork flooring could be perfect for your conservatory renovation. Harvested from the replenishable bark of trees in Portugal, cork flooring stands as one of the most environmentally friendly flooring options on the market.
Not only that, but our brand new Cortejo range boasts some stunning designs, from natural cork to wood effect prints, and provides optimal comfort when walked on. In fact, their true strength shines through when in use – as these floors combine the soft warmth and noise reduction of carpet with the resilience and unbeatable look of wood.
