European Oak is all the rage now in the timber flooring market with customers having the freedom to select from a broad range of stained and natural surfaces to meet their design requirements. While timber flooring options have evolved over the years, resulting in various trends on the market, a corresponding decrease has been observed in the number of actual species being offered. This leads to the question: What comes after European Oak?

Though the timber flooring market once relied on natural species for colour variation, this demand is now met through colour manipulation of European Oaks in order to give buyers a wider choice from dark floors where the oak is smoked or stained to light floors that are bleached or limed. Customised colouring has, therefore, opened up the oak colour palette to unlimited options.

This process is good for the environment as it optimises available resources, while every floor will still feature the distinct cathedral grain effect of European Oak.
