“We love solid wood flooring, having had it in a couple of previous properties. We opted for oak before but this time wanted a darker, richer wood. We did some extensive research and decided on Walnut. It wasn’t easy to find, however. Not only is it pretty difficult to track down, it can be ultra expensive too. We were delighted to discover Woodpecker’s York Walnut at Chic Flooring. A great floor at a reasonable price.” – Sally
