Elm Solid Wood Flooring

Solid elm flooring, particularly English elm flooring was once widely used in homes, particularly in halls and staircases as, like oak, it is  very hardwearing. The colour is a dark, rich brown. We understand that care needs to be taken with English elm as the grain is quite wild and the wood is more sensitive to variations in moisture. Therefore in modern, warmer houses we suggest the use of Wych elm as it is more stable.

Superb alternative to oak

The colour of elm solid wood flooring ranges from dark purple to light green, with various hues of silver and brown in between but the character is truly wonderful with a grain that swirls and flows around small knots and pips.

We carefully source our elm logs from those that have succumbed to Dutch Elm Disease and are felled as a result. Our elm can be supplied in wide boards, mixed or standard width and is machined on site in our joinery shop at Sotterley Sawmills according to your requirements.

An elm floor is a hardwearing, durable and beautiful floor and is well worth consideration. It features a wide variation in both colour and grain direction and features burrs, knots and lots of swirling grain. Elm provides a wonderfully interesting floor that is bursting with character.
