Eco-Friendly Flooring for Future-Forward Interiors With V4

Sustainable building practices are becoming increasingly important for homeowners across the UK, with demand for beautiful, durable floors that align with environmental values. Thankfully, advancements in flooring technology and procurement offer eco-friendly options that rival conventional materials, both in performance and aesthetics.

V4 Wood Flooring stands at the forefront of the sustainable flooring movement, with our engineered wood, laminate, and luxury cork collections. Through innovative engineering and responsible manufacturing, we have managed to create flooring that is truly green.

Your Answer to Sustainable Home Flooring


Greener Hardwoods, Engineered for the Future

The cross-ply construction of engineered wood flooring means only a thin veneer of hardwood is needed on top of its softwood base. This saves old-growth oak from over-harvesting and increases the yield of every tree felled.

We make sure to also utilise low-VOC and formaldehyde-free adhesives during the construction process to minimise off-gassing, as well as UV-cured oil finishes which are applied for durable protection with minimal environmental impact.

From FSC® and PEFC® certified material sourcing to zero-waste manufacturing, engineered wood aligns with eco-values at every stage of its life.


Eco and Budget-Friendly Wood Looks

Laminate flooring has come a long way since its earliest iterations. Modern laminates, such as our Natureffect collection offer an almost-identical wood aesthetic alongside equally impressive environmental benefits. From responsible resourcing to longer lifespans, today’s laminate flooring is truly eco-centric.

Our laminates start with an HDF core, bonded together using water-based, VOC-free adhesives and made from pulpwood sourced exclusively from managed pine forests, then topped with a photographic print layer that recreates the look of natural wood.

We finish off each plank with an ultra-durable melamine resin finish, built to last decades and withstand the stains, spills, and bumps of family life.


Renewable Materials and One of a Kind Visuals

Our luxury Cortejo range of cork flooring offers 100% sustainable flooring. As cork is a type of bark, harvesting it actually promotes forest growth without cutting any trees down, making this material one of nature’s most renewable and sustainable resources.

The cork oak trees thriving across Southern Europe and Northern Africa develop thick, spongy bark over their lifetime, with the outer layer stripped every nine years. This allows for a new layer to regenerate and increases the CO2 absorption rate during the process.


Healthier Homes, More Reliable Durability

Cork is also naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic, unlike carpeting or synthetic vinyl flooring, which means it discourages mould and bacterial growth and promotes healthier indoor air quality in your home.

Cork’s sustainability also comes from its reliable durability. The dense and flexible makeup of this bark resists wear altogether, avoiding replacement waste and preserving its beauty for decades. Underfoot, few other floors feel as comforting and inviting as natural cork, and at V4, we make these sustainable floors attainable for homes across the country.


How We Support the Environment

We are and always have been dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of the flooring industry. Over the years, we have implemented several initiatives to support this commitment:

  • Reforestation: We source all of our hardwood from sustainably managed forests, ensuring that only mature trees are harvested. Plus, for every tree cut down, multiple fast-growing saplings are planted, ensuring the regeneration of the forest.
  • Eco-Packaging: We have introduced eco-friendly packaging, made from recycled, unbleached cardboard and with reduced printing resources. It has also been designed to allow planks to breathe and acclimatise in your home without needing to remove it.
  • Green Certification: We are proud to be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC®). All of our products are produced in certified factories and comply with UK Timber Regulations. When browsing the range, look out for our acorn logos as a mark of complete sustainability.
