This warm, rustic oak flooring from Florence’s solid oak range has a traditional brushed and oiled finish, and has bundles of character.

The mostly golden brown colour of the rustic oak is interspersed with lashings of dark brown due to the knots, mineral streaks and splits present in the oak.
It’s no surprise that Florence Solid Rustic Oak Flooring 18mm x 150mm Brushed & Oiled Flooring planks have thicknesses of 18mm due to the title of this floor. At 18mm thick, this is premium quality solid rustic oak flooring by Florence that will last decades and can be re-sanded and refinished repeatedly over its lifetime.
The brushed finish applied to the solid rustic oak essentially scrapes away the softer sections of the wood, typically the softer summer growth to leave a lightly textured surface. This achieved by the use of a steel wire roller brush and is ideal for a natural looking floor. This is complimented by the choice of a further UV oiled finish that penetrates into the Florence oak flooring deeply to strengthen the oak and emphasise the bold colour variations present in the golden brown oak. The edges of the 150mm wide planks have been bevelled for the purpose of creating V grooves that add character and definition to this solid rustic oak flooring.
Florence Solid Rustic Oak Flooring 18mm x 150mm Brushed & Oiled has tongue and groove edge profiling, a traditional feature that many will already be familiar with. One convex section of a plank neatly fits inside the concave groove of another to give a sturdy fit that can then be reinforced through the use of glue, nails or screws. To further the rustic feel of this flooring, it is purposely produced in random lengths that range between 300mm and 1500mm. Not only does this avoid wastage by using more of the oak tree but it also gives a traditional feel that dates back to the time when things weren’t mass produced to millimetre accuracy.Florence Solid Rustic Oak Flooring 18mm x 150mm Brushed & Oiled,
