Quick Overview

A stunning rustic dark oak floor which has been distressed and wire brushed to achieve an authentic aged appearance. The boards contain an abundance of large splits, checks and open knots up 75mm in diameter. The knots can be filled and sanded to a smooth finish if preferred. The boards can be supplied with an optional hardwax oil finish or supplied unoiled - ready to take a finish of your own choice. Board lengths are typically between 1.2m and 2.8m but some may be supplied shorter or longer than that, depending on timber availability at the time of machining.

Important note: Fuming is a chemical process which darkens the wood in a natural way. Different boards and different batches of timber will react differently to the fuming process, and as such, photographs on the website, and samples, are provided as a guide to tone only, and are not an exact colour match.



Our Tradition Aged Oak floor lends rich, rustic charm to any period property. Newly machined oak boards are passed through our custom-made distressing machine which imparts random indentations to the surface and edges. The boards are then wire brushed which raises the grain of the timber and adds texture to the surface. Lastly, the boards are fumed, a chemical process which darkens the timber. Each board will react differently to the fuming process, producing a natural range of dark, medium and lighter shades; we recommend loose laying boards before fixing to achieve an even spread of tones. Knots, checks and splits can be left open, enhancing the rustic charm of the boards, or can be filled and sanded if a smooth finish is preferred.

All the raw timber we use is sourced from either PEFC or FSC certfied suppliers. The timber is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-10% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. All our wood floors are manufactured to order, from the same batch of timber. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced imported floors are not made, or quality controlled, to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.

Superior quality and finish
After a mistake buying flooring on the internet and it not being what we expected even though we paid a premium price, we decided to make sure that for our second room we got it right, so visited the British Hardwoods factory to see the flooring before buying to make sure we weren't going to be disappointed a second time. The flooring is superior in quality and finish and well worth the extra cost of having it made to order in the UK. Skirting was ordered at the same time and we were asked straight away whether the skirting should be fumed as well as the flooring. Delivery was within 3 weeks by British Hardwoods own delivery van. The product looks fantastic down and with the matched skirting transforms our dining room. All in all a pleasant experience.
