There is such a thing as too much choice! At Edward James Oak, as we are a bespoke producer, we can offer an almost infinite number of choices for your floor so we have detailed the following options as a quick guide to help you refine your options to your perfect floor.
  • Design

    • Plank
    • Herringbone
    • Chevron
    • Marquetry Panels

  • Species

    • European Oak (which is by far our most popular product)
    • Walnut
    • Ash
    • Douglas Fir
    • Cherry

  • Grade

    • Prime grade (almost knot free)
    • Nature grade (only small knots to 20mm)
    • Character grade (plenty of knots and swirls)

  • Thickness

    • 13mm (very efficient with under floor heating and a great option to hit most budgets)
    • 21mm (load bearing meaning it is suitable to fit direct to joists and still our most popular option)

  • Size

    • For plank floors, we can offer widths from 100mm to 400mm with 180mm and 220mm being the most popular choices. Lengths, standard up to 2.4M but extra-long lengths available up to 7 metres
    • For herringbone and chevron floors, widths from 80 – 180mm, lengths from 450 to 1000mm, 500 x 100mm and 600 x 100mm tend to be the most popular choices
    • For marquetry panels, from 600 x 600mm to 1000 x 1000mm with a choice of designs

  • Colour

    • We have over 100 choices of colours to suit every pallet and design, all produced in house with further individual option available

  • Surface Texture

    • We can apply various techniques to add different textures to the surface of your floor, making it even more unique, these include:
    • Brushing
    • Distressing
    • Backscraping
    • Bandsawing
    • Hand eased edges

There are lots of considerations to make when buying a floor, our range of options ensures you will not have to compromise on your dream floor. We are not a wholesaler of other producers products where you can only have certain colours in certain widths, or only in a certain grade. We take great pride in ensuring you get the floor that is perfect for you.
