Douglas Fir flooring is beautiful, sustainable & provides a stunning backdrop to scandinavian & contemporay interiors. Douglas Fir yields extremely wide and luxuriously long engineered pine flooring due to the enormity of the trees.  What this means for you is understated drama. Large rooms can be installed with room length floorboards without visual interruption. For versatility and beauty you cannot compare with Douglas Fir Flooring.

Douglas Fir is a fast-growing Pine also known as British Columbian Pine (UK) and Oregon Pine (USA) . Pine engineered flooring is extremely environmentally friendly: non-toxic, recyclable, grows naturally, and long-lasting.


Douglas Fir Flooring - Lye and Soap Finish

Photo by Residence Interior Design Ltd

Douglas Fir flooring is a lightly coloured pink toned timber that lends itself  beautifully to a white finish. The Saatchi Gallery in London is a wonderful example of a solid Douglas Fir Floor finished with White Lye and Soap. The Lye - lightens the floor, and the Soap - protects against dirt and grease. A White Lye and Soap finish also plays a part in maintaining a suitable moisture content within solid Douglas Fir flooring; by slowing the exchange of moisture from the wood to the surrounding atmosphere. This process helps to keep Solid Douglas Fir Flooring stable. The soap needs to be regularly reapplied to solid Douglas Fir flooring to help maintain optimum stability, 'pop-out' dents, clean the flooring and preserve its contemporary white wooden floor chic.

As all of our flooring is engineered for inherent stability, soaping our engineered Douglas Fir Flooring is not required. We have worked closely with the staining chemists to create the perfect  bleached white lye effect stain - Saatchi. Furthermore our permanent white stain - Saatchi  (unlike lye & soap) does not need re-applying and protected with a hard-wearing matt UV oil finish.

Is Douglas Fir a Hardwood ?

No, Douglas Fir is the only softwood or engineered pine flooring that we produce, and moderately durable. For those seeking the Scandinavian appearance of Douglas Fir flooring but needing a hard-wearing alternative, we cannot recommend more highly our Engineered American White Ash flooring - Saatchi. American White Ash flooring is a beautiful, naturally white hardwood and provides a stunning floor with similar, beautiful figuring to Douglas Fir.
