Choosing solid timber enables you to individualise your floor. The boards can be stained to make the timber lighter or darker, they can also be cut and installed in a distinctive pattern. The floor can have a border or an inlay using different timber species or you can alternate the grain direction. Please see Patterns and Inlays and our Project Showcase for examples.
Solid wood flooring comes in a large variety of timber species. The boards are supplied 19mm thick, and can vary in width from 65mm to 200mm.
Once installed, your solid timber floor can be flood filled to stop any gaps between the boards, sanded, stained (if you wish) and then it will be coated with your choice of polyurethane (which comes in a number of different sheen levels) or oil.
The standard widths of boards are 85mm, 128mm and 180mm, however many species are available in other widths. Board widths can change between shipments. Please discuss board width preferences when requesting a quote. See Board Width for more information.
In addition to the timbers shown below, Swinard Wooden Floors are happy to source specific timbers and widths of boards especially for you, provided they are available from sustainably managed forests.

Photo and Sample Disclaimer: The photos on this website and samples lent to you by Swinard Wooden Floors are provided as a guide only. Please remember that photographic colour may vary from the actual wood due to translation and reproduction limitations. As a floor is made up of many pieces of timber there will be more variations in grain and colour than can be shown in either a photograph or sample; wood is a natural product and no two pieces are the same. Character variations are to be expected.
