After answering all questions individually the owners/directors have now created a comprehensive manual on installing natural wooden floorboards for diy-ers based on these frequently asked questions. The manual covers all basics from what to note when selecting your own natural wooden flooring, the schedule of works, three different installation methods to the easy maintenance principles that will keep your floor healthy and beautiful and much, much more.
Installing a wood floor isn't rocket science - all it needs is some common sense, patience, the right preparations at the right time and of course quality materials and the right tools.

About the Author
Karin Hermans, born in Bergen op Zoom - The Netherlands, moved to Kent UK in 2000. Together with partner Ton Slooven (co-author of the Wooden Floor Installation Manual) she owns/manages Wood You Like Ltd, an independent retailer in natural wooden flooring. The debut business novel "The Kiss Business" details - part fact/part fiction - the first 3 years of growing the business from home-office to showroom.
The "Wooden Floor Installation Manual" is in the writers' opinion a logical result of being passionate about quality wooden flooring and writing. Karin continues to add related stories and advice on/about flooring to various DIY-forums and Wood You Like's own website plus FAQ blog.
On other blogs she publishes stories on (web)marketing and business concepts.
