douglas fir flooring white lye and soap stain

Douglas Fir flooring is stunning, sustainable & bestows a beautiful Scandinavian Style. Douglas Fir yields exceptionally wide and luxuriously long planks due to the enormity of the trees. What this means for you is understated drama. Large rooms can be installed with room-length floorboards that unify and open spaces, reflecting nature's allure without visual interruption. For versatility and beauty you cannot compare with Douglas Fir Flooring.

Douglas Fir flooring is naturally a light pinky toned timber but enhanced by a bleached 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.

Our engineered Douglas Fir Flooring - Scandi style & UV oiled


As all of our flooring is engineered for inherent stability, soaping our engineered Douglas Fir Flooring to maintain floor stability is not necessary. What's more, we have worked closely with our staining chemists to create the perfect natural, bleached white stain - Scandi.

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. The unique grain and natural beauty of each plank is enhanced and preserved, creating a remarkable ambience.

Is Douglas Fir a Hardwood ?

engineered douglas fir flooringEngineered Douglas Fir flooring is  softwood  / engineered Pine Flooring


No, Douglas Fir is a softwood and as such moderately durable. Engineered Douglas Fir flooring is unquestionably beautiful, but many of our clients are unaware that Douglas fir is a Softwood - Pine. Engineered Pine flooring is moderately resiliant,  liable to dents and sometimes splitting. Longevity of all engineered wood flooring depends on a complete understanding of the nature of the timber,  finishing and maintenance requirements. Furthermore we are very happy to advise and strongly recommend that you request samples of both our Douglas Fir Flooring plus our similar but more hard-wearing Scandi style wooden floors to compare for yourself.
