The timber of choice is generally Oak and as above with finishes that enhance the natural grey hues.

Solid Wood versus Engineered Wood Flooring?

People are often unaware that wood will react according to changes in humidity and temperature. Using solid wood flooring in modern installations involving heating, air-conditioning and under-floor heating systems is therefore very unwise and risky due to its instability. Today’s demands for wood flooring installations therefore necessitated adding stability to timber / wood flooring.

 

Coastal Inspired Oak flooring washed up to be super stylish in 2016 and amongst our most popular floors in 2017 and specified for Rick Stein's Sandbanks above . The Band-sawn finish adds texturised rustic charm, whilst the bespoke creamy stain enhances the natural hues. Classy, yet understated & super stylish ... organic hues, a weathered aesthetic and sealed in with a low-lustre UV oiled finish. 

Evoking the texture and organic hues reminiscent of wood that has drifted from the far corners of the ocean is on trend. Weathered grey tones and distressed textures work well with our engineered  The colour palette is natural and organic grey / biscuit tones... we achieve these tones by staining -  a nature oil finish to retain the natural colouring within the timber, or a smokey grey or white stain for driftwood hues.

The popularity of Douglas Fir flooring continues to reign through 2016. Douglas Fir lends itself beautifully to a white finish. The beautiful Saatchi Gallery floors in London (Dinesen - Solid Douglas Fir , White Lye & Soap finish) are undoubtedly the inspiration ....White Lye & Soap is the stain for the stylish. The lye lightens the colour of the timber - and the soap - whitens it further, and protects against dirt and grease but requires regular reapplication throughout the life of the floor. Douglas fir is an abundant and sustainably harvested, certified softwood timber species. The dimensional stability of solid Douglas Fir flooring can be an issue increasing with the size of the boards.

 

Our Band-sawn Natural Cream finish texturises the Oak floor boards with a rough-sawn, undulating surface. The natural cream stain both adds tonal dimension and retains the natural creamy/grey hues sealed in with a super hard-wearing low-lustre UV Oiled top-coat. This beautiful finish plays up the natural beauty of European Oak flooring with every floor and every floorboard being inherently unique. The floor above was specified as mixed-width which enriches the slighty rustic aesthetic.

Douglas Fir Flooring

Dinesen Douglas
 

Many of our early projects this year have been for wide plank Douglas Fir or White Ash floors either white  / pale grey stained or bare natural matt white finishes. These shades and finishes complement the interior trends for the season and provide a perfect contemporary backdrop. The inspiration for this trend is undoubtedly The Saatchi Gallery in Sloane Square graced with beautiful Douglas Fir with a White Lye and Soap finish.

Whenever restoring your hard wax oiled wooden floor, it is always important to consult the hard wax oil manufacturer’s instructions / directions beforehand. This is because the general process may differ. The next thing is to identify the level of damage / wear i.e. whether the whole area of your floor needs refinishing or just a small isolated patch.
