douglas fir flooring white lye and soap stain 

Douglas Fir flooring is beautiful, sustainable & a stunning backdrop to Scandinavian Style & contemporary interiors. Douglas Fir yields extremely wide and luxuriously long floorboards 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 flooring is a light pinky toned timber enhanced by a natural white finish. The traditional method of bleaching Solid Douglas Fir Flooring is with Lye & Soap. The Lye - lightens the floor, and the Soap brightens, whitens & protects. Soaping also helps maintain a suitable moisture content within solid Douglas Fir flooring; by slowing the exchange of moisture to the surrounding atmosphere. This helps keep Solid Douglas Fir Flooring stable. Soap needs to be regularly reapplied to maintain floor stability, 'pop-out' dents and to clean and protect Solid Douglas flooring.

As all of our flooring is engineered for inherent stability, soaping our engineered Douglas Fir Flooring to maintain floor stability is not required. We have worked closely with the staining chemists to create the perfect natural, bleached white stain - Scandi. Furthermore our Scandi white stain as opposed to Lye and Soap, does not need re-applying. Both floor & stain are protected with a hard-wearing UV oil.

Is Douglas Fir a Hardwood ?

engineered douglas fir flooringDouglas fir flooring is the only softwood / engineered Pine flooring that we produce

No, Douglas Fir is the only softwood floor that we produce, and moderately durable. Engineered Douglas Fir flooring is unquestionably beautiful, but many people are unaware that Douglas fir is a Softwood - Pine. Engineered Pine flooring is moderately durable,  liable to dents and sometimes splitting.

For this reason we recommend our Engineered White Ash flooring - Scandi  (pictured & described below) as a durable, hardwood alternative for a Scandinavian style woooden floor.

Ash too, is enhanced by our translucent white stain, for a stunningly similar Scandi Style , Coastal or Contemporary white wooden floor as you can see by scrolling down..
