Why Smoked Oak Flooring Will Play a Leading Role in 2018 Fri 15 December 2017

One of the biggest interior design trends for 2018 is the retro/vintage look and nothing sits more perfectly within this style than smoked oak flooring.

Dark smoked rustic oak flooring adds character and charm to any room

Since the start of the 20th century, smoking has been used as a way of preserving wood and this was a look that gained a lot of popularity with the arts and craft movement of the time. Bringing the idea right up to date, engineered oak flooring embraces all the charm and beauty of smoked wood, offering truly stunning retro flooring.

At Flagstones Direct we have a wonderful selection of smoked oak flooring, offering the exquisite beauty of traditional flooring, alongside the extreme practicality of engineered oak. An exceptional alternative to solid wood, engineered oak flooring brings warmth and character to any space, with less chance of warping or splintering, and is incredibly low maintenance.

Smoked oak flooring for rich colours

Smoking oak flooring enhances the grain and colour for a floor with an abundance of character

The beauty of smoking wood is it accentuates the wonderful characteristics without obscuring the grain, so you have the fabulous smoked tones complementing the intricate detailing of the wood. The depth of the colour and the effect varies depending on how long the wood is smoked, and you can even get a ‘light meets dark’ look by lightly brushing or oiling the wood too. With the array of gorgeous colour tones available, this traditional flooring works just as perfectly within a period property as it does a contemporary one.

Vintage flooring to suit any taste

If you’re looking for a fabulous natural tone, our stunning Handscraped Smoke White Wash Oil engineered oak offers beautiful tones of caramel for a timeless finish. For a truly magnificent rustic floor, our Antique Mid Smoke White Oiled oak combines the smoking process with antique to produce a delightful colour palette of ochre through to burnt umber.
