What about Unfinished European Oak

Bare, unfinished European Oak  is a greyish biscuit colour. The grain and depth of colour is completely transformed with a clear oil, wax or lacquer and a golden patina / colouring develops. This effect is enhanced with time and exposure to sunlight. The beautiful natural grey hues can be retained by specifying one of our natural finishes  - scroll down to view.
This is our character Floor Sanding Merton flooring in another beautiful bathroom installation with a beautiful bespoke natural grey finish - basically a more accentuated natural looking (grey/white) stain  enhance the natural light grey hues and eliminates yellowing (associated with a clear oil / lacquer finish).

Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring is a solid piece of wood from the top to the bottom. The thickness varies from ¾” to 5/16”. Those wood floors can be installed both above and on grade, and they can be sanded and refinished during its service life.

Engineered wood floors from other side are also real wood floors made by using multiple wood or wood composite veneers. The veneers can be from the same or from different wood species. It have a great stability because the grain of each veneer runs in different direction. This mean that the wood will resist expanding and contracting during fluctuations in humidity and temperature which is really making it wide usable. This type of flooring can also be sanded and refinished and it can be installed above, on or below grade.
