UNFINISHED

We supply some of our floors unfinished – so you decide which finish is best for you. The finish will be applied in-situ.


TEXTURE

SHADOW SAWN

Using innovative techniques, we create saw marks at random across the width of the board for an on-trend look.

SKIP SAWN

Inspired by the natural wear and tear of wood, we make both shallow and deep saw marks across open areas of the board.

SAND BLASTED

Replicating a weather-beaten texture, our sand blasted floors have an authentic, reclaimed appearance.

UNDULATING

By sanding the wood’s natural undulations, we work with the grain across the floor for a truly organic feel.

BRUSHED

To reveal the timber’s natural grain, we remove soft summer growth using our clever brushing technique.

SMOOTH

Carefully sanded to achieve a sleek, uniform look for that contemporary gallery-style finish.
