Traditional solid oak flooring is finished in a completely clear matt finish, protecting the oak without changing its suble natural colour.

We use a carefully selected finish, that unlike other clear coats does not change the oak colour to the harsh orange hue that is commonly seen. This allows the pure natural charm of the oak to shine through. Prices are per m2

Various board widths are available in 20mm thickness, and you can choose from rustic or prime.  You can also opt for a fingerjointed 14mm in rustic only which gives fixed length boards at a great price

SKU: SOFTR Category:


Essentials solid oak flooring creates a wonderful character filled floor. Our traditional clear matt finish is a wonderful hard wearing option that lets the natural charm of the oak boards shine through.  We hand apply a modern 2 pack finish which creates a subtle look to your new oak flooring.

Boards are available in a range of widths from 139 right through to 188mm to suit all budgets and design choices.  All of our solid oak flooring is supplied in a range of 1.2-2.4m lengths. The only exception is fingerjointed flooring which is sold in fixed 2.4m lengths.

This flooring is offered in rustic grade and prime grades. Rustic will look superb in period properties and renovations. Boards will feature knots and some surface features which are filled to create a super smooth finish. Prime boards will show the occasional small knots with most of the board clear.  Each board has a microbevel to all 4 sides create a striking floor as well as helping to hide any surface inconsistency in the subfloor.

Heritage solid oak flooring is available in both 14 and 20mm thick board options. 14mm is a great choice if you are laying the floor over an existing subfloor, whereas 20mm can be laid direct to the joists as a structural floor.  All of the boards are solid oak right through so they can be resanded if desired as many times as needed.

Timber Grades

Essentials is offered in rustic and prime grade oak. Rustic boards also feature a 14mm fingerjointed version.

Rustic boards will contain knots and other surface character and these where necessary will be filled flush and sanded to create an even smooth surface to the board. Wherever possible we will leave these unfilled to add to the natural character of the board. Unfinished boards may require light localised sanding around knots before finishing.

Fingerjointed boards are made up from lengths of timber that have been permanently jointed back together. The boards are manufactured from full width pieces that are bonded end to end to create longer boards. The joints are done on a state of the art machine so are well disguised and are a really good idea for darker finishes where the colour also helps to disguise the joint. The benefits are a cheaper price as well as fixed lengths.

We do not end match fingerjointed flooring as it must always be laid over an existing floor being 14mm and therefore end matching is not necessary. This helps to keep costs low by reducing machining operations. Flooring lengths can be butted up together during the installation process.

Prime boards use the highest commercially available grades of oak. Some boards will show the occasional small knots with the rest of the board clear. There will also be boards that have no knots at all. The overall effect is a much subtler floor and this grade is particularly suitable for the palest finishes where you want the grain of the timber to be the main feature. The downside is that the raw material is more expensive.

Solid oak flooring is available in 14mm and 20mm thick boards. 14mm boards must be laid over an existing subfloor. 20mm boards if desired can be laid direct to joists as a structural flooring. For normal 400mm joist centres, the end tongue and groove means that the joint does not need to finish over a joist.

20mm solid oak flooring can also be used to overlay an existing floor if desired


Traditional Flooring is supplied with a clear satin finish, that is designed to be unobtrusive and to let the natural beauty of the oak to shine through.

We use modern hard wearing finishes which are hand applied in our UK factory for a great finish.



Flooring is typically delivered on a pallet as solid oak flooring is particularly heavy, 50m2 of 20mm thick oak flooring will typically weigh around three quarters of a tonne!

Pallet carriers will usually offer a kerbside delivery only and you should ensure that someone is available to help offload
