Brushed & Oiled Solid Oak Wood Flooring

Brushed and Oiled is an extremely popular finish. These floors have oil applied to give protection to a floor. This works by the oil seeping in and preventing the surface and internal wood from absorbing moisture. The brushed effect adds a rustic appearance to the floor too, making it appear more authentically worn and distressed. This combination helps give a traditional look to your home.

Why Brushed and Oiled Solid Wood Flooring?

Brushed and Oiled floors are traditional in appearance, being that they appear more rustic, natural and lack a shiny surface that a lacquer would offer. Despite this, you get the same surface protection, plus further internal protection due to the oil’s ability to seep into the wood. These floors help a room appear more warm, welcoming and homely, whilst being kept safe from any spillages and damage that may occur in family homes. Also, any scratches that occur due to pets for example will not be detrimental, and will instead only add to the brushed appearance.

Alternatives

A lacquered floor offers protection to the surface only, and lays on the floor like a film, creating a shinier look in comparison to oil. It also may reduce the natural look and feel of a wood floor, depending on if brushing is involved or not. Brushing helps retain the natural feel with a lacquer, but not so much a natural look.
