The Brimham Sun Kissed Oak is a beautiful hand-scraped solid oak floor. Its warm golden colour, rustic grains and textured finish all combine to create a solid wood floor with heaps of character.


Hand-scraping is an artisanal way of finishing the wood that creates wave-like ridges on top of the surface. This gives a slightly distressed look that makes the floor look more natural, aged and worn, a winner for any vintage lovers out there. The tumbled edges take this hand-scraped finish right to the edges with distressed edging. As well as being hand-scraped, the Brimham Sun Kissed Oak has also been brushed and oiled so that the texture hides any scuffs or scratches that might crop up over the years and the oil gives some matt protection to reduce the chance of any scratches happening in the first place.


The rustic grade means you get a selection of natural knots and imperfections, letting the wood’s natural beauty speak for itself. The random length staggered floor boards also adds to the natural look. Because this is solid wood, you’ll be able to sand and refinish the floor again and again, giving a lifespan of over 100 years.


Choose the Brimham Sun Kissed Oak for a beautiful rustic floor that adds a warm, welcoming and golden glow to your home, a solid wood option that’s an investment you’ll enjoy for years to come.

If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:

Tongue and Groove vs Click

Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.

• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.

• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.

Floating

Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.

Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.

Fixing

Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.

Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
