BEST HARD FLOORING - winner: GALION BY WOODWORKS by Ted todd

The Galion planks are dimensionally impressive and among the largest in the Woodworks collections. The different lengths add interest to the floor, while the narrower widths add scale and proportion to the wider boards.
‘It looks luxurious, with a great richness and warmth,’ says Alice Temperley.
