Douglas Fir flooring is beautiful, sustainable & provides a stunning, contemporary backdrop to a Scandinavian style interior. Douglas Fir also known as Douglas Pine, yields extremely wide and luxuriously long engineered pine floor boards due to the enormity of the trees. For versatility and beauty you cannot compare with Douglas Fir.

Douglas Fir is a fast-growing Pine tree and softwood. Pine engineered flooring is extremely environmentally friendly: non-toxic, recyclable, grows naturally, and long-lasting. The pictures above show our engineered Pine /  Douglas Fir flooring with a variety of finishes.... white being the order of the day.

Is Douglas Fir a Hardwood?

No, Douglas Fir is the only softwood /  engineered pine flooring that we have produced. It is likely that in service, small splits and / or shakes will appear. This is the very nature of this timber and to be expected. After a period, the timber settles and splits and shakes can be filled / repaired, enhancing the aesthetic quality of the product. We are no longer manufacturing Douglas fir for the forementioned reasons / do not deem it suitable for engineered wooden flooring.

For those seeking the contemporary Scandinavian appearance of Douglas Fir flooring but requiring a durable alternative, we recommend our Engineered American White Ash flooring - Saatchi. Finished with a translucent white stain and UV Oil providing a permanent natural white stain & hardwearing top-coat for a rapid installation plus instant, low maintenance protection to this  beautiful white wooden flooring.

We recommend our engineered American White Ash Flooring (depicted below)  as a durable contemporary alternative to Douglas Fir Flooring

American White Ash engineered flooring is the most durable engineered hardwood flooring for domestic  / commercial installations. With a translucent white stain and a commercial grade low-lustre UV oil finish applied, it provides a stunning extremely similar floor to Douglas Fir flooring (White Lye & Soap finish), but with the benefits of inherent durability and minimal maintenance, and remains our most popular luxury wood flooring into 2018.

Douglas Fir Flooring - White Lye and Soap

Douglas Pine Engineered Flooring Photo by Residence Interior Design Ltd

Douglas Fir flooring and American White Ash flooring are lightly coloured timbers that lend themselves beautifully to a white finish. The Saatchi Gallery in London is a wonderful example of a Douglas Fir Floor, and has been finished with White Lye and Soap. The Lye - lightens the floor, and the Soap - protects against dirt and grease .

Furthermore a White Lye and Soap finish also plays a part in maintaining moisture content within Solid Douglas Fir flooring by slowing the exchange of moisture from the wood to the surrounding atmosphere, thus keeping it more stable.The soap needs to be regularly reapplied to Douglas Fir flooring to help maintain optimum stability, 'pop-out' dents, clean the flooring and preserve its pure contemporary chic.
