Another of Luxury Flooring’s brushed and oiled solid oak collection is our Brimham Cottage Oak 125 x 18mm.

The Cottage Oak is made from one hundred per cent solid European oak. Once the raw material has been machined into floorboards, a brush is scraped over the surface of each board, removing only the softer grain. This creates a textured, natural feel and look to each plank. An additional benefit of purchasing a ‘brushed’ product is that the brushed design makes it near impossible for any scratches to become noticeable given the fact that their surface area is already textured; just the thing for households with young children and/or pets with claws.

Once the brushing process is complete, approximately seven coats of hard wax oil is applied to the timber.

The plank width of this product is 125mm, which is considered quite a narrow plank width. Narrower planks are often said to make a room look larger as you can lay more individual planks in the room.

The total thickness of the Brimham Cottage Oak is 18mm (1.8cm) and the lengths are random between 300-1200mm (30-120cm). With the plank thickness being 18mm, you are able to sand down and refinish this floor approximately seven times. This process is usually carried out once every 15-20 years but this is your preference. Once the oak had been sanded, you would need to reapply an oil or another choice of finish e.g. lacquer or wax. Please note, many customers use this opportunity to change the appearance of their floor by applying a different colour stain.

Brimham Cottage Oak 125 x 18mm comes with a tongue and groove fitting mechanism offering you a few different installation options; glued, secret nailed or as a floating floor. The most popular way of installing a 100% solid product would be to glue it directly to the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. The grade of our Brimham Cottage Oak 125 x 18mm flooring is ‘rustic’ which means you are likely to come across natural knots and imperfections within the batch; this is often seen as the main attraction when buying 100% solid wood.

If you require any matching accessories for your project, we offer a full range of accessories in the ‘brushed and oiled’ finish for an exact match.

Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.

  1. 1. Gluing
  2. With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue and groove parquet flooring.

    2. Nailing

    With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
