English & European Solid Oak Flooring

A solid oak hardwood floor rich in texture will compliment any room…

Oak Solid Wood Flooring

Solid oak flooring is our most popular unfinished hardwood flooring product. It has subtle honeyed tones and a beautiful grain. We offer four grades, first quality, character, rustic and pippy, each with a slightly different look. We personally grade and mill all our English and European Oak and therefore are completely confident in our product.

Unfinished Oak Flooring

We hold substantial stocks of unfinished solid oak wood flooring in a range of thickness and quality. This enables us to supply oak floor boards with specifications individual to each client. Starting at 27mm our solid oak boards are planed on both sides to give a floorboard of 20-22mm. Boards are left unfinished and untreated. Our real wood floors are supplied tongue and grooved or square edged allowing the floor to be sanded and finished in situ.

‘I used Sutton Timber’s first grade solid English oak in my three reception rooms, two cupboards, hall, stairs, landing and bedroom. My floor fitter said it was the best oak in England and it is hard to believe anything else. The wood is simply beautiful – a calm, clear, grain with just the right amount of variation and movement in it.’

English and European Solid Oak Flooring

We stock a range of beautiful, English and European oak flooring. A solid oak wood floor, rich in colour and texture, complements any home. Specialising in unfinished wide oak boards we tailor the floor to your specific requirements. In addition by kilning to 6% we also supply a high quality kiln dried engineered oak flooring suitable for underfloor heating.

Sustainably sourced

The unfinished oak wood flooring we supply is cut from a tree grown from sustainably sourced woodland in England.  Interesting in its character as the grain is not always straight and even.   It has lovely pippy characteristics which feature across the board.  Colour varies from paler to darker honey tones which are determined by the mineral content of the soil where the tree has grown.

Long & Wide Oak Flooring

Our Character English grade does what importers of French oak floors often cannot do – offer long, wide oak floorboards. Traditionally in Britain, we opt for a floor board that is at least eight feet long and 200mm wide. We offer a range from 120mm–200mm specification as a minimum to our clients. No two floors are the same, our bespoke oak wood flooring is as individual as it gets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between solid and engineered wood flooring?

Solid wood flooring is produced from boards cut from solid hardwood logs.  Engineered flooring is constructed of layers of ply bonded together with a top veneer of solid wood.  See our infographic for more information.

We offer four grades of Oak:-

First Quality – straight grain, consistent colour and very occasional small knots.  Character occasional small live knots and cats paws. Rustic heavier grain, markings and larger knots and cracks and Pippy with pippy characteristics and wildly varying grain.  Read our guide for more information.
