Scandi Style Floors to Suit Every Budget for a Cottage Feel to Your Home

Scandinavian style is characterised as functional, simple and always beautiful. Walls are often painted in swathes of cool white or grey, livened up with the help of carefully curated accessories. Often in eye-catching retro colours such as yellow, orange and green. 

Natural textures are a key component in Scandinavian homes whether its a soft sheepskin rug or a thoughtfully-placed potted plant. But we think the most impactful way to bring nature into your home is with high-quality wooden flooring. Wood is a fundamental feature in Danish design and is often used on walls and cupboards too. 

Long-lasting and great for minimising noise, solid wood flooring is the obvious choice for those busy families who refuse to comprise on style and quality. And thankfully, browsing the solid wood flooring by Stories Flooring you’ll find a wide selection to suit any budget.  

Manufactured in Denmark and available in a variety of materials and colours, Stories’ solid wood flooring will inject a dose of classic Scandinavian style into any home.

Stories Flooring buy in bulk, cutting out wholesalers which means prices remain low for the same great quality wood every time. If you’re on a mission to create that Scandi cottage feel in your home we’ve got a stunning selection of wooden flooring for you to choose from.

First up is one of our personal favourites, the Solid European Nature Oak Flooring in rich snow white. It adds a clean, modern edge to traditional wooden flooring and leans into the minimalist aspect of Scandinavian design. Suitable for use throughout the home it is made from robust oak.

Karndean Art Select Parquet in blond oak is a timeless addition and will help create that cottage feel in your family home. Like all their hardwood flooring, this will do well in high traffic areas like hallways and staircases, providing a long-lasting yet affordable solution. With 25 year warranty, you can rest assured that your wooden floor is built to last.

For a rustic look, Maple hardwood is an excellent choice. The fine grain has a luxurious, smooth finish which makes it easy to paint or stain if you want a quick refresh further down the line. It is also one of the most hardwearing woods available so it will stand the test of time making it a wise investment for new homeowners. 

Bentley Dry Back Limed Ash is a cool-toned option which would look stunning throughout any home. The brilliant colour will add light to even the darkest corners of your home and can help create the illusion of space in smaller areas. Like all the Stories flooring, it is easy to clean with weekly vacuuming, mopping and drying. A real winner for people who like to entertain in kitchen and living areas. Just remember to use the correct attachment for vacuuming your hardwood floors to avoid causing unnecessary damage. 

If you want a more intense look we love the Cavalio Conceptline wood, which offers a sophisticated, edgy vibe that will impress visitors. This darker shade of wood adds drama but still works well when paired with light-coloured pieces of furniture. In fact, dark wood tones are often easier to decorate with because they match well with both cool and warm colour palettes. 

Harmony Smooth Rum Oak Plank has a distinctive grain which can be helpful for those with children or dogs as it disguises scratches and marks which may occur over time. The rich, red-toned wood will add warmth to your home making large living areas feel cosy and snug. We think this option would work well with lots of texture like chunky blankets, woven rugs and a plush sofa to make the room informal and inviting.

Consider the Lifestyle Floors Harrow White Spruce flooring which has a heavy grain. This textured look works in contrast to sleek, modern furniture and high gloss worktops. Alternatively, style with warm-toned wooden pieces such as chairs and side tables for an eclectic Scandinavian feel.

If you prefer a stark contrast, why not experiment with this Cavalio Projectline Black Metalstone flooring? This black flooring is designed to age gracefully and last years with regular maintenance. Marry with crisp white walls for maximum impact or soften with multiple shades of grey when picking your soft furnishings. Whether it’s a bathroom, bedroom or even conservatory this striking design will appeal to those who enjoy a touch of drama when they decorate. 

With up to 70% off Junckers hardwood flooring, you’re guaranteed to find the look you want at a price you love.
