Douglas Fir is beautiful, sustainable & provides a stunning, scandinavian style floor. Due to the huge size of the trees themselves; Douglas Fir yields uber wide, very long floor boards. We produce our engineered Douglas Fir flooring in extra-wide plank.

Douglas Fir is a fast-growing soft-wood and by its very nature a green flooring material: non-toxic, recyclable, grows naturally, and long-lasting. For versatility and beauty you cannot compare with Douglas Fir. The pictures above show our engineered Douglas Fir flooring with a variety of finishes applied.... white being the order of the day.

Widths available up to 260mm, in long random lengths (median 2.4m).

A longer length specification is now available  - up to 3.5m lengths - this is subject to availability of timber and + 15% on list prices.

Engineered Douglas Fir flooring - 125mm up to 260 mm wide:  £ 61.00 m2 + V.A.T


Douglas Fir - White Lye and Soap Flooring

Parliament Hill, Hampstead, London

Douglas Fir lends itself beautifully to a white finish. A fantastic example is the Saatchi Gallery in London which has been finished with white lye and soap. The lye - lightens the floor, and the soap - protects against dirt and grease & maintains the wood floor stability. A White Lye and Soap finish is also a factor in maintaining a suitable moisture content within solid Douglas Fir flooring by slowing the exchange of moisture from the wood to the surrounding atmosphere, thus keeping it more stable.The Soap finish needs to be regularly reapplied to Douglas Fir flooring to maintain optimum stability, 'pop-out' dents, clean the flooring and preserve its pure contemporary chic.

As all of our Douglas Fir flooring is engineered, the regular soaping application is not necessary to maintain moisture content as our Douglas Fir Floors are engineered for inherent stability.

Our Douglas Fir flooring however can be supplied unfinished for you to apply a White  / Grey Lye and Soap finish in-situe.

For those seeking the Dinesen look but without the high maintenance...we provide an extremely durable alternative to a white lye and soap finish - our Saatchi (white) stain and UV oiled finish pictured top & below). This finish is applied in our factory to provide a rapid installation and instant protection to this naturally beautiful flooring.

Finishing cost £6.50m2 + V.A.T.

Engineered Douglas Fir - Saatchi

For those seeking the contemporary Scandinavian appearance of engineered Douglas Fir Flooring but requiring a harder-wearing timber ... (Douglas Fir is a soft-wood) we would recommend our  engineered American White Ash flooring with our Saatchi white stain & UV oiled finish. Ash is one of the most durable hardwoods for flooring installations and provides an extremely similar floor to Douglas Fir  - White Lye & Soap finish but with the added benefits of hardness, inherent durability and minimal maintenance.

 The Stable Poole - Douglas Fir Flooring - Bespoke Aged Stain  - Band-sawn


 This engineered Douglas Fir floor was probably our most unusual bespoke specification last year. Our client wanted a (Nando's style wooden floor) a dark navy stain that would wear quickly with a distressed  / band-sawn texture. The results speak for themselves. Amazing.
