The wooden floor is finding more and more fans among Russians, who have had enough of linoleum and laminate flooring. Natural wood gives any room a unique warmth and comfort. If earlier the board was repelled by the complexity of installation and subsequent operation, today many manufacturers offer locking structures. You can lay a solid board yourself without expensive equipment and additional materials. However, buyers have difficulties with the choice due to the rich assortment on the Russian market. Well-known (and not so) foreign brands and young ambitious manufacturers from Russia came together in a tough competition. Which one should you give preference to?

How to choose a solid board manufacturer

  1. Traditionally, the excellent quality of wooden boards is offered to the domestic consumer by European companies. If German and Scandinavian brands are famous for classic wood species, then manufacturers from Italy or the Netherlands lure the buyer with exotic.
  2. American and Canadian companies bring no less exclusive solid board to Russia from overseas. They have an advantageous location in close proximity to unique forests.
  3. Domestic wood processors also have interesting proposals. Some of them specialize in local wood species, while others import raw materials from abroad. Equipped with high-performance equipment, Russian brands compete on equal terms in terms of quality. At the same time, an affordable price becomes attractive to the consumer.
