What is Brushed Oak flooring?

Brushed Oak is our range of contemporary, textured timber flooring products. To create this effect, wire brushes are used to pull out the softer spring wood, exposing the harder summer wood, thus accentuating the grain and creating a beautifully textured surface. View examples in our Brushed Oak Flooring Gallery

Brushed Oak is available in solid or engineered boards which are supplied pre-finished in an Osmo Polyx® Hardwax-Oil of your choice.

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 Brushed Oak Flooring range is available in Character, Prime and Prime Plus grades, all of which feature boards which are carefully hand graded and selected to your specification. Browse through visual representations of our different flooring grades.

Character Grade

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

Prime Grade

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

Prime Plus Grade

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.

What colours are available?

Brushed Oak 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.

I send lots of clients to Russwood. The staff don't try to sell you a floor; instead they fit the product to your project, and the quality is excellent.
