Douglas Fir flooring is naturally a rosy pink toned timber but enhanced by a Scandinavian style bleached white finish. The traditional method of bleaching Solid Douglas Fir Flooring is with Lye & Soap. The Lye - lightens the floor and stops the natural patination of the timber giving a beautiful and light appearance. The Soap brightens, whitens & protects.

 Understanding The Nature of Douglas Fir

 Our engineered Douglas Fir flooring  - natural / unfinished as supplied


Longevity of Douglas Fir Flooring depends on a complete understanding of the nature of the timber,  finishing and maintenance requirements. After 30 years experience of working with our timbers we have learnt that Scandi style Douglas Fir is best finished in-situe with ideally a Lye & Soap finish. This is why we supply our Douglas Fir flooring in unfinished floorboards only. Douglas Fir is unquestionably beautiful, but our most high-maintenance floor and requires a regular programme of nourishment and protection to keep it looking tip-top ...

Douglas Fir - Lye & Soap Finish

Our engineered Douglas Fir Flooring - Lye & Soap Finish


Soaping a Douglas Fir floor is important in many ways. As is an understanding of the nature and needs of this beautiful timber. All wooden floors are living and hygroscopic - they react like a sponge to moisture within their surroundings and will contract and expand accordingly. Some moreso than others, in the case of Douglas Fir.


Soap needs to be regularly applied to help maintain a suitable moisture content and to clean and protect Douglas flooring.


Unlike lacquers or oils, Floor Soap does not seal the surface of a Douglas Fir floor, allowing the timber to breathe.


Floor Soap consists of vegetable fats, which benefit Douglas Fir floors by acting like a body lotion, replenishing lipids.

Soaping also helps maintain Douglas Fir floor stability by slowing the exchange of moisture to the surrounding atmosphere and thereby preventing movement / splits.


Mopping with Floor Soap not only removes dirt and stains, but the soap water penetrates the wood fibres which swell and seemingly miraculously ‘pop-out’ dinks and dents in this unique softwood.


The Soap layer protects and regenerates Douglas Fir Flooring with every treatment.


If the timber is not treated for a long period of time, a Douglas Fir Floor may wear and dry out and possibly split.

Is Douglas Fir a Hardwood ?

  Douglas Fir is a softwood / engineered Pine Flooring 

No, Douglas Fir is a softwood and as such moderately durable. Engineered Douglas Fir flooring is unquestionably beautiful, but many clients are unaware that Douglas fir is a Softwood - Pine. Engineered Pine flooring is moderately resiliant,  liable to dents and sometimes splitting. Please contact us for advice about timber / floor suitability for your project.

We strongly recommend that you request samples of our Douglas Fir Flooring plus our similar but harder wearing and low-maintenance Scandi style  floors described below.
