Natural Oiled Engineered Oak Flooring

Oiled engineered wood is ideal for people wanting a durable and stable wood floor that is well protected, yet retains its natural character in both look and texture. This finish involves applying an oil that seeps into the wood, providing protection both on the surface layer and within, helping your floor last longer and need much less maintenance over time.

Why Oiled Engineered Flooring?

Engineered flooring is made for those who desire protection from warping caused by moisture, and the lower quantity of wood allows this. Oil can enhance this effect - it seeps into the wood to create protection internally and externally, meaning the veneer will be highly protected from this warping too. For this reason, it is an ideal finish for those who wish to have natural flooring in a room such as a kitchen were spillages occur. As opposed to a lacquer, oil provides protection whilst retaining the natural look, which allows you to create a rustic or farmhouse look that is homely, warm and welcoming.

Other finishes can also be combined with oil, such as brushed or smoked, meaning an oiled floor doesn't have to limit your style options. The oiling also adds a relaxing and cosy atmosphere, due to the charming natural texture remaining visible.

Over time, the oil may wear away, but this is easily fixed with a re-oiling, and no sanding is required to do this. That being said, if you do sand your floor, be sure to re-oil it afterwards, and take note of the wear layer to be aware of how many times you are able to sand that particular floor.

Alternatives

A lacquer can also offer protection to your floor, but instead leaves a shiny film on the surface, and no internal protection is provided. This creates a less natural look that some people prefer. You may also buy an unfinished floor so you can oil it yourself, or buy an oiled floor with an additional brushed finish for example to better suit your preferences.
