Opting for a warm, golden brown oak floor such as the recently added range of Florence Solid Golden Oak floors gives a room a cosy atmosphere and gives a well-loved, aged appearance. This golden oak floor is regarded as hand distressed due to the hand scraping that has been performed on the surface of the rustic oak to recreate the style of traditional, centuries old floor. The oak has been planed to give a roughly level yet smooth surface in the same way as wood floors would have been cut before the age of mechanisation.
There are plenty of natural features to be found on this characteristic oak due to its rustic grade that laminate flooring simply can’t imitate. All potential flaws such as knots have been treated and filled to add to the longevity of your new floor. The rustic golden oak has been sourced from Asia to give you the best value for money and makes this one of the cheapest 18mm thick solid oak floors around.
To add to the slightly irregular, traditional rustic nature of the floor, the floorboards come in random lengths that range between 300mm and 1500mm and add to the overall French farmhouse style. This doesn’t make this floor considerably harder to lay and if anything can reduce the number of cuts required to achieve a staggered floorboard arrangement. As mentioned the planks are 18mm thick and have widths of 125mm.
Although new, Florence Solid Golden Oak 125mm Hand Distressed Lacquered Flooring has already received a number of positive reviews for it’s charming, warm colour. There’s an almost exotic quality to the hue that is vaguely similar to a jatoba or plantation style floor. Adjacent planks fit together firmly thanks to the tongue and groove allowing this floor to remain for decades if properly cared for and the subfloor and underlay are suitable. Due to the thickness of the wood, it can be sanded and finished in a different style just as you would change the decoration in your home.Florence Solid Golden Oak 125mm Hand Distressed Lacquered Flooring,
