The Solid Wood Flooring Company’s Engineered Prime hard Canadian maple is perfect for any floor including dance floors. Maple gets more “mellow” as time passes and creates a lovely warm ambience in any location. When we manufacture we carefully select the solid top veneers so that there are no knots or black streaks that are prevalent in many maple floors. If you want a lighter white floor then we have many options from a fire resistant white lacquered board 220mm wide board, a 220mm wide brushed white oiled board and our top of the range 340mm wide x 2500m long board in any colour.

ANTIQUE SMOKE OAK FLOORING
Like so many natural materials, the appearance of oak improves over time as the grain of the wood and the natural knots and markings within it become more pronounced.
It can take many years for oak flooring to reach this well-worn, distressed stage, but through unique manual scraping and brushing techniques, we can speed up the process and create boards that look just like reclaimed antique oak.
The Solid Wood Flooring Company offers a wide range of beautifully crafted antique oak flooring to bring a luxurious, old world feel to any domestic or commercial interior.
Our craftsmen work hard to ensure that the features of our antique oak boards do not compromise their strength and durability, so you can enjoy all the benefits of solid or engineered oak flooring with a unique aged appearance.
Oak flooring for listed buildings
The Solid Wood Flooring Company's antique oak wood flooring is approved by the listed planning office and has been used by architects and designers for numerous projects in Grade I and Grade II-listed properties.
In some cases, the original wood flooring has become rotten, while in others major refurbishments needed to be carried out and some or all of the floors had to be replaced.
Because the appearance of our antique oak floors comes so close to that of real heritage wood, it is ideal for use in listed buildings where maintaining the original features is essential.
Antique floors for period properties
The characteristics of antique oak flooring also make it ideal for use in period homes and commercial environments like pubs, clubs and restaurants that require an old world ambiance.
A contemporary wood floor would look completely out of place in a domestic environment full of period features like old fireplaces and sculpted banisters. It could also negatively impact the value of the property.
Heritage oak boards can be installed to complement these original features and create a floor than looks as though it's been walked on for a century or more.
Similarly, antique flooring can be used in commercial environments to retain the time-worn character of the interior while ensuring floors are tough enough to withstand high levels of customer traffic year after year.
