Douglas Fir Flooring

Douglas Fir Flooring is a coveted wooden floor indeed. Our love affair with the Scandi trend for white lye and soap bleached wooden floors seems to have reigned forever and shows no sign of waning. We love Nordic style white walls and white wooden floors…art gallery style interiors that not only maximise space , reflect natural light but showcase our carefully chosen furniture and objects.

What many people do not realise is that Douglas Fir is a softwood. As its classification suggests Douglas Fir is a ‘soft wood’ and engineered pine flooring is moderately durable & prone to denting.

American White Ash Engineered Flooring

Engineered American White Ash flooring is a durable alternative to Douglas Fir Flooring

For those seeking Scandinavian style Douglas Fir flooring but requiring a durable alternative, we recommend our Engineered American White Ash flooring  – Scandi. American White Ash with our translucent , natural white stain is a perfect preference for a hard wearing , low maintenance Scandi style white washed wooden floor. American White Ash is a whiter shade of pale with beautiful figuring and a very hard, hardwood – the timber used to make baseball bats, pool cues etc.

Durable Scandinavian Style Flooring

Our translucent white stain  – Scandi gives the bleached effect of white lye and soap, minus the maintenance. Many of our clients do not know that a white lye and soap finish is semi-permanent and needs to be extremely regularly reapplied to both maintain whiteness and protect the wooden flooring.
