What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
All of our grey wood floors are made from engineered wood. This means they have been specifically ‘engineered’ to be stronger and more flexible than standard hardwood flooring.
Our grey engineered wood flooring is made by tightly layering high-quality plywood, made from a mix of spruce, poplar, birch, and pine. We then precision cut your chosen timber of choice, be that our European oak or American walnut, into a ‘lamella’, which is then fitted on top of the multi-ply base.
This composition is incredibly durable and creates an even layer when the blocks are fitted together. We also micro-bevel every groove on four sides to give the surface joins a smooth finish, completing the final look and ensuring a flooring solution that lasts.

The Advantages of Grey Engineered Wood Flooring
Every inch of our oak and walnut timber has been sourced from managed woodlands across Europe and America. These carefully tended timber forests are grown to harvest, with saplings doctored for signs of disease and ill-growth and surrounding biodiversity preserved.
This method of growth is not only healthier for the planet than standard methods, but it also ensures perfect, straight cuts of timber every time, reducing unnecessary material wastage.
Engineered wood floors are naturally eco-friendly in their composition. A standard layer of timber will only need to be cut to about 2 and 6 mm thick, as opposed to the thick 22 mm minimum of traditional hardwood planks. This means that engineered wood flooring has a 60% greater yield per tree harvested.

Our Types of Grey Engineered Oak Flooring
When it comes to wood flooring, straight planks are a classic and unbeatable look. Our grey engineered wood flooring will suit any space, from heritage to contemporary, and comes in a wide range of shades from brushed driftwood to dark grey.
Our grey parquet flooring is inspired by 17th-century French designs, made up of cut ‘battens’ that have been arranged in geometric shapes and zig-zags to achieve an intricate and unique look, guaranteed to enrich any interior.
This signature aristocratic design resembles a zig-zag pattern of clean-cut V-shaped battens. This style works well in both classic and modern interiors, and adds a touch of elegance to the overall look of the space.
Herringbone is similar to our chevron look with its V-shaped zig-zags, but the battens will be interlocked in their arrangement, achieving a blended look that is very attractive. For those looking to do something different with their grey wood floors, herringbone is the way to go.
