Unfinished Solid Wood Flooring
Unfinished solid flooring is simply the raw material in its natural state after it has been machined into planks. The wood has been made into planks of flooring but has not had any essential protective layers of oil or lacquer added yet. All types of hardwood flooring need to have protective top coats applied to prevent damage from daily wear and tear, so this will need to be done once the flooring has been installed. The beauty of unfinished flooring is that you are able to achieve a unique look by choosing colour stains and types of finishes that will complement you room and match the design of your interior.
For more information on finishing your floor, see our blog article on How to treat and unfinished Floor. Once your Oak flooring is installed and has been finished with protective layers of oil or lacquer, you will need to ensure you care for and maintain it correctly. See our Wood Floor Maintenance and Care Guide.
