Our dark floors range in shades from deep browns with antiqued effects to red and golden hues and even contrasting blackened surfaces which add style and drama to bold designs.
We source all of our oak from well managed European forests, selecting timber that is warm in tone and rich in rustic character. The oak is treated simply and with the utmost respect for the surface grain. Lacquer or oil is used to seal and protect but most importantly to enhance the natural beauty of pure oak.
Grey comes in many shades of light and dark and works beautifully with warm base tones of our European Oak surfaces. Light greys add a faded industrial aesthetic perfect for minimal designs. While deep grey can be brushed into natural grains adding a contemporary edge to rustic oak planks and parquet blocks.
Creating light floors requires a deep understanding of how the raw timber reacts to lacquers and oil finishes. We offer a range of light floors which maintain the look of raw untreated oak with it's pale washed out tones while still giving a hard wearing floor surface that are both beautiful and practical to live on.
White floors open up spaces and flood buildings with light to create a real feeling of spring and summer even on the darkest winter days. Oak can be treated with reactive dyes which give a bleaching effect whilst white stain is applied by rollers and buffed in to penetrate the top surface of the board and then sealed with either oil or lacquer, resulting in extra emphasis of the natural figure of the wood.

Wood flooring is easy to keep in great condition. Both lacquered and oiled finishes are semi permeable allowing the wood to breathe. This means you should avoid using harsh chemical and abrasive cleaners on your hardwood or laminate wood floors. Many ‘supermarket’ brands claim to work well on all surfaces including wood floors but most should be avoided as they contain high acidic or caustic ingredients that will quickly compromise the lacquered or oiled surface of your floor, destroying the water and stain resistant properties.
Oiled floors can be kept in great condition simply by treating with more oil from time to time. Maintenance can be buffed into the surface of an oiled floor to enhance the natural beauty of the wood and keep oiled surface water and stain resistant.
Our engineered hardwood floors can be jointed with PVAC adhesive and floated on underlay or fully bonded to the subfloor with our rigorously tested solvent free flooring adhesives. These flexible adhesives anchor the wood to the subfloor whilst still allowing the timber to expand and contract naturally.
Our engineered plank and laminate floors can be installed as a floating floor over specialist underlays which cushion the flooring from slight imperfection in a subfloor. Underlays can insulate cold concrete floors and provide a vapour barrier to stop any rising moisture. They also provide impact sound insulation to lesson the noise of any heavy feet.
A well prepared subfloor is key to a successful installation and will help ensure your floor performs to its very best. The subfloor is likely to be either wooden or a cement based screed and we have all the necessary renovation screed and levelling compounds that will ensure your subfloor is flat and ready for installation.
Traditionally wood floors have been finished with natural oils and waxes to make beautiful and durable surfaces that can be buffed and polished to last for generations. Oils can be natural or coloured to enhance and protect your flooring surface and are simple to apply with long-lasting durability.
Your V4 Wood Flooring can run seamlessly throughout your home. With our matching solid oak transition bars you can cover expansion joints and bridge different level floor finishes as well as edge around fireplaces and door ways.
All engineered and laminate wood floors must be installed with provision for an expansion gap around the perimeter so that the timber can expand and contract with changing seasons. Our matching oak beading covers these gaps and provides the perfect finishing detail to your floor.

Real wood floors in kitchen design add a natural warmth, texture and style to your kitchen space – and with such a wide range of colours, tones and styles available it is now far easier to choose a wood floor that is an integral part of your overall kitchen design – and not just an afterthought.
There has been a tendency in the past to shy away from wood floors in the kitchen, with concerns about the impact of heat, water and general spillages. This is only a concern where solid or poor quality wood is used.
Properly cared for it is the only natural surface that can be used in kitchens. And with our focus on only the highest quality engineered wood floors, our floors are ideal for installation in the kitchen – treated with care you’ll have beautiful floors, made from a natural material, which will last for years.
Won’t the floors expand from heat and moisture in the kitchen?
Our engineered wood floors are all built on an ultra stable hardwood multi ply tongue & grooved base – giving a feeling as robust as solid wood – but significantly reducing the amount of expanding or contracting in response to conditions. Any impact will be so minimal it will go unnoticed when installed with the correct expansion gaps along the wall.
What about spills and splashes?
Whatever type of flooring you have, you will always be advised to quickly clean up spillages. Our wood floors all have durable surface treatments applied over the oak top surfaces, so just be diligent and quickly wipe up any spills and the wood floors will remain unaffected.
What about underfloor heating?
Good news again, all of our floors can be used with underfloor heating. Installed correctly, and ensuring the surface temperature never exceeds 27C, you can design your space more effectively by removing the need for radiator space.
Will there be ongoing maintenance?
Depending on the surface finish of your chosen wood floors maintenance needs vary.
Our durable lacquered surfaces make them the ideal low maintenance kitchen choice. Each plank has coats of UV cured lacquer applied, leaving very little to do in the way of maintenance apart from keep them clean. You will find lacquered options in our Alpine, Alpine Lock, Eiger, Zigzag and Home collections.
If you do decide to choose a UV oiled or hard wax oiled surface finish in the kitchen these need a little more maintenance, but with the right products and care they also make a great natural floor choice for kitchens.
We recommend an initial coat of Woods Good Natural Floor Care Refresher is applied to the floors once installed, and then occasionally treat them with Wood’s Good Natural Floor Care soap spray which will help keep the protective layer on the floors, making spills easier to deal with.
What about everyday cleaning?
On top of any maintenance requirements, a regular sweep and gentle wet wash weekly will keep the floors clean. Only use a very slightly damp mop for wet cleaning, or we recommend using the Wood’s Good Natural Floor Care spray cleaning kit. A safe pH neutral cleaning solution that is extremely effective and simple to use with no risk you might be damaging your floors.
