Unfinished Engineered Flooring

Unfinished engineered flooring has no finish applied, meaning it is less protected and is in its natural state with no design features such as staining added. It looks as natural as wood flooring possibly can, but it is recommended that an oil or lacquer finish is applied at home to protect it from damage and help it last as long as possible. If you do not apply a finish, use these floors only in low footfall homes where spillages are rare and there are no pets or children.

Why Unfinished Engineered Flooring?

An unfinished floor affords you great personalisation - you can add whichever finish or combination of finishes you like to your personal taste. As some flooring may not come in the combination of finishes you like, this allows you to create a unique product that does not yet exist. We have a variety of species, grades and wood patterns available for you to finish at home - also visit our accessories section if you need products to help you do this.

Unfinished flooring makes a great project for DIY enthusiasts, but finishing a floor at home can be carried out by beginners too. Get a professional in as an alternative if you do not feel confident enough to do this yourself. If you are a purist or prefer the natural unfinished look but still want added protection, use an invisible oil - this will prevent moisture penetration but allow the wood to look as it did when you bought it. If you ever sand the floor, don’t forget to re-finish it with the same treatment as the protection will wear away.

Unfinished floors also look less uniform and mass produced in comparison to pre-finished floors, due to the sanding that occurs on site. This produces minor variations in look and texture, meaning a rugged and unique farmhouse feel is achieved that pre-finished options cannot reproduce.

Alternatives

For an unfinished look, buy a floor from our invisible oiled engineered section. This will offer protection, and retain the natural look provided the oil is the only finish applied.
