Smoked oak flooring is a popular finish for those looking for a distressed appearing flooring that is still structurally sound. The smoked treatment given to the oak recreates the appearance an oak floor that is over 100 years old might possess but while genuinely antique oak flooring may be weakened, this is still highly durable 18mm thick solid oak flooring from the Florence range.
Florence Solid Smoked Oak 125mm Brushed & Lacquered Flooring is a very popular choice and is one of the best selling floors from the Florence solid oak flooring range due to it’s unique smoked oak appearance. The rustic oak used has bundles of character and the brushed finished given to it emphasises the natural features including knots and summer growth rings by brushing away the softer parts of the wood to give a textured grain.
Finally, after the smoked and brushed treatments, this Florence solid oak flooring is finished with a matt lacquer to protect and seal the surface of the oak. This protective layer doesn’t drastically alter the appearance of the smoked oak and obviously isn’t reflective. The sealed surface is also easier to clean and it is currently one of the most popular finishes applied to hardwood flooring. The smoked oak finish gives a faded golden brown colour with grey areas.
The planks of this flooring are 18mm thick, 125mm wide and come in random lengths ranging from 300mm to 1400mm to further the rustic appearance. The edges of the planks are also bevelled to add a distinctive V shaped border between each section of this Florence smoked oak flooring. Due to it’s thickness of 18mm, this flooring is also suitable for use as a load bearing floor due to its structural strengths.
