Solid Wood Species Options

Everybody's familiar with a classic oak floor, but you may not know that there's loads of other great species out there, too. Each species of wood has its own little personality, and it's important to find one that suits you. Here we'll introduce each species of wood available for your solid wood floor so you can get to know your choices.

Solid Oak Flooring

Solid oak floors are by far the most popular choice of wood species and come in a large range of colours. Oak is distinctive for its straight and swirling graining patterns which can have a silvery texture. Rays and knotting give that traditional and classic appearance. Over time it will grow slightly darker in direct sunlight.

Solid Ash Flooring

Solid Ash floors are light and very hard, and can be best described as a pale creamy wood. Ash has a bold, straight, moderately open grain and distinctive patterns and markings. In sunlight it darkens over time.

Solid Beech Flooring

Solid Beech floors are pale wood with slight undertones of pink and a softly speckled surface. These light flecks within the graining add character and diversity to the flooring. Beech is great at resisting dents as it has a similar hardness to Oak but a straighter, more regular grain. In sunlight it darkens over time.
