What is Chateau flooring?

The Chateau range is a smooth, contemporary take on oak flooring, designed to complement current decorative trends and modern interiors.

Chateau flooring is available in solid or engineered boards which are supplied prefinished in an Osmo Polyx® Hardwax-Oil of your choice. The sleek, natural look of these boards can unify and enhance any modern living space; examples of which can be viewed by clicking on "Product Gallery" at the left hand side of this page. 

Which grades are available?

European Oak is widely considered to be the finest available worldwide due to it’s attractive colouring, figuring and durability properties. All Russwood oak flooring originates from the same highest quality raw material, making grade selection purely an aesthetic preference. 

The Chateau range is available in Character, Character/Prime, Prime and Prime Plus grades, all of which feature boards that are carefully hand graded and selected to your specification, as outlined below. For visual representations of our different grades, click here

Character Grade

Ideal for naturally inspired interiors. The beautifully prominent figuring, a mixture of heartwood and sapwood and large, hand-filled and sanded knots, illustrates the true, rustic nature of this product.

Character/Prime Grade

This grade retains a rustic charm but the knots are less frequent than those featuring in a Character grade board. This is a great option for those who like the natural effect of the wood but prefer a slightly more uniform appearance.

Prime Grade

Clean, contemporary and incredibly stylish. Each board has been carefully selected to ensure that the beautiful figuring of the wood is highlighted but, only small pre-filled and sanded knots are present.

Prime Plus

In addition, we offer a Prime Plus grade where only exceptional boards with occasional pin knots are selected from our prime grade. This is a truly special product which is subject to raw material availability.

Which colours are available?

Chateau boards are supplied pre-finished with Osmo Polyx® Hardwax-Oil in a choice of 9 different colours - from white, through honeyed golden tones to rich shades of ebony. Before being oiled, boards can be smoked; this process adds rich, deep variations of colour to the palette, providing another 6 colour options.  

View these colours using our colour guide.
