Engineered Oak Flooring Double Brushed Dark Oiled 21189DBO

At Oak Floors Online we have a variety of different finishes of oak flooring available in both our Solid Oak and Engineered Oak flooring ranges.

Brushed and Natural Oiled

Natural Brushed & Natural Oiled Birch Backed Engineered Oak FlooringBrushed and Natural Oiled oak is our most popular finish by far offering a beautifully enhanced and natural looking grain. Brushed and Natural Oiled oak is coated with natural colour waxoil that does not change the colour of the oak itself, and instead just enhances the natural colours and features within.

The Brushed and Natural Oiled finish is achieved by ‘brushing’ the face of the planks during manufacture to remove the softer fibres of the oak, which enhances the beautiful grain features of natural oak and provides a slightly textured surface, yet smooth to the touch after being finished with waxoil.

Not only does this mean that scratches and marks don’t show up as much as on a sanded smooth finish, but because the waxoil colour is natural, if you ever want to darken the colour you can apply another coat of waxoil in whatever colour you choose to achieve the exact finish that you want. It is like a prefinished blank canvass ready for you to create your masterpiece!

This finish is also very simple to maintain and should only ever require a light sanding and another coat of waxoil to bring it back to pristine condition when required (depending on wear & tear). It should never require a total re-finish, which increases its lifespan and reduces maintenance costs. No wonder we can’t get enough of it!

This is a brushed & oiled product finish, so oak being oak, there will be a variance in the depth of texture, depending on the grain of each board. Every oak floor board is unique and so each has a different grain pattern, which will ultimately control the appearance of the brushed surface. There is no way of controlling this during production because oak is a natural ‘growing’ product and every tree develops differently during its growth.

It is also worth noting that we advise applying another coat of waxoil immediately after installation in areas where there is risk of spillages, moisture splashes or drips. Although there is no such thing as a waterproof oak floor, this will help protect your new floor and seal the joints between the boards, whilst also improving resistance to wear and tear. This will also overcome the variances in finish where some boards have taken on more oil than others because of the grain difference and variance in batch.

Double Brushed and Dark Oiled

Dark Double Brushed & Dark Oiled Engineered Oak FlooringThis deep textured finish is created by brushing the face of the oak plank twice during manufacture before applying several coats of a dark waxoil to enhance the grain features, thus creating a somewhat antique appearance that is truly beautiful.

Very popular in conversions and restorations because of its appearance when installed in rooms with other wood features, and is often installed in bars or restaurants where the floor will be subjected to high traffic because it doesn’t show up marks and scratches like a smooth finish does.

Very simple to maintain and should never require a total re-sanding of the whole area for re-finishing. Just sand the worn areas by hand and apply another coat or two of waxoil to bring the floor back to life and looking as good as new. It’s very difficult to appreciate the finished appearance from a small sample and if possible, should be viewed in our showroom.

This is a brushed & oiled product finish, so oak being oak, there will be a variance in the depth of texture, depending on the grain of each board. Every oak floor board is unique and so each has a different grain pattern, which will ultimately control the appearance of the brushed surface. There is no way of controlling this during production because oak is a natural ‘growing’ product and every tree develops differently during its growth.

It is also worth noting that we advise applying another 1-2 coats of waxoil immediately after installation in areas where there is risk of spillages or moisture splashes or drips. Although there is no such thing as a waterproof oak floor, this will help protect your new floor and seal the joints between the boards, whilst also improving resistance to wear and tear. This will also overcome the variances in finish where some boards have taken on more oil than others because of the grain difference and variance in batch.

Lacquered

Lacquered Natural Solid Oak FlooringThe finish on our lacquered oak flooring is achieved by applying several coats of UV lacquer over a primer onto a sanded oak board. An anti-scratch protection coat is then applied to make the wood more durable. This results in flooring that is relatively smooth and hard, with a shiny satin finish that is easy to clean, making it a great choice for those who suffer from allergies.

Lacquered oak flooring is and always has been a very popular choice as it perfectly complements many different styles of room and decors. It works very well in rooms with low natural light, as the shiny finish can brighten up the room through reflection.

We also offer a beautiful hand-scraped vintage chocolate finish and a hand scraped antique lacquered finish, both still smooth lacquered but with darker tones and a more consistent colouring.

Celtic Character Rustic

Natural Celtic Character Rustic Engineered Oak Flooring laidThe unique Celtic Character Rustic finish is created by allowing all grades of oak into the finished production line, and then filling all the open natural irregularities with a very dark filler before being sanded and then oiled. This is done to highlight and enhance these features such as knots and splits in the wood, thus creating a very rustic appearance that is truly stunning when viewed as an installed floor.

Celtic Character Rustic oak is a sanded and oiled finish, intended to grow in character as the floor is used; any marks and scratches simply add to the character effect. This makes it a perfect choice for rooms that see high volumes of traffic such as living and dining rooms and even children’s playrooms. Also very popular in restaurants, showrooms, shops, bars and clubs because of the low maintenance required.

Having said that, if you ever want to make any repairs to our Celtic Character Rustic range of products, this is a simple process of sanding the effected area by hand and re-oiling.

One of the beauties of a finished oak floor is that no two boards are the same, so we have chosen to make this a feature of the floor and make these characteristics stand out with pride. Our Celtic Character Rustic oak flooring is our most work intensive finish but we believe the effort and time it take to create is well worth it.

When a small sample is sometimes considered, with a big black ‘streak’ running through the middle, it is very difficult to imagine your whole floor containing such features but it works! It looks amazing, so please make sure you study the photos of Celtic Character Rustic flooring on this website before deciding against it.

Unfinished

Flexible Colour Unfinished Extra Wide EngineeredOur unfinished oak wood flooring is just that – unfinished. The wood has been sanded down, ready for you to apply any finish you desire following installation, perfect for creating whatever style and colour is right for your home.

Unfinished oak flooring is particularly suitable if you already have a distinct style to the room that you are happy with because it allows you to easily match the colour of the floor to your existing decor. It is also a popular choice in rooms where spillages may occur, because by applying the finish on-site immediately after installation, a seal is created between the boards.

Unfinished oak flooring also allows you to choose your very own unique finished appearance, which is easy to maintain as time goes by because it is your very own creation.

Choosing unfinished oak flooring gives you the freedom to create the exact look you desire, and if you prefer you can also have a traditional, more rustic appearance by ‘distressing’ the wood before finishing it. It’s essentially a blank canvas and practically nothing is off limits.
