Our Studley Bloom Oak 150 x 14/3mm has been very popular amongst visitors to luxuryflooring.co.uk since its introduction. This product has a total thickness of 14mm. 11mm of which is made up of multi-ply backing (cheaper species such as birch are used when constructing the multi-ply backing) and 3mm of real European oak on top, this is also referred to as the wear layer. The plank width of the Studley Bloom Oak is 150mm, which is deemed a moderate plank width considering we offer other products with plank widths ranging between 80 - 300mm. A 150mm plank width is perfect for most rooms/spaces within a residential property.

With a 3mm wear layer you are able to sand down the surface up to four times in total should you ever feel it necessary. Once the oak has been sanded, you would be required to reapply a lacquer (or another choice of finish if you wish to change the appearance of your floor i.e. oil or wax) to the surface area in order to refinish it.

Once the material has been constructed into individual floorboards, approximately seven coats of pearl satin lacquer are added to the surface of the planks. This ensures the timber is completely sealed, protecting the material from any spillages and/or splashes, which are likely to occur over the years.

The Bloom Oak 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 an engineered product would be to lay it as a floating floor, only gluing the joints and laying it on top of an underlay. Please note, this method of installation requires you or whoever is fitting your floor to leave an expansion gap around the perimeter of the room (approximately 10mm in total).

The grade of this flooring is ABC, which means you are likely to come across natural knots and imperfections within the batch. This grade of timber is often referred to as ‘rustic’ on other supplier’s websites and is seen as the main attraction when purchasing natural products. If you require any matching accessories for your project, we offer a full range of accessories in the ‘lacquered’ finish including door profiles, scotia beading and skirting boards.

Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.

  1. 1. Floating Floor
  2. In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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 & groove parquet flooring but isn't suitable for any type of click-fit boards.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. 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.
