Luxurious and elegant. Turn your home into a palace with the Studley Throne Oak. Natural daylight will bounce off the golden lacquer of this floor, bringing your eye to the textured surface of the hand-scraped wood – all while protecting your floor against scratches, stains and spillages.
If you love a rustic floor, you’ll love the unique hand-scraped surface of the Throne Oak. The surface of the planks are traditionally sculpted by hand to create subtle ridges and textures in the oak.
Nowadays, hand-sculpted floors are often created by machinery that emulates the look. But whether by hand or machine, this crafted finish is totally unique and makes your floor look truly authentic, natural and aged just like an original feature of your home.
Invest in some super strong engineered wood. Each board of the Throne Oak features a top layer of solid wood that’s backed with sturdy layers of timber, making it incredibly durable. Not to mention, you can fit engineered wood over underfloor heating systems which is perfect for the colder months.

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. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
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.
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 recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
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.
