What is Chateau Oak 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 floorboards which are supplied prefinished in an Osmo Polyx® Hardwax-Oil of your choice. The sleek, natural look of these Oak boards can unify and enhance any modern living space; examples of which can be shown in our Chateau Gallery

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 Oak Flooring range is available in Character, Prime and Prime Plus grades, all of which feature floorboards that are carefully hand graded and selected to your specification, as outlined below. Find out more detail on the visual representations for our different grades of Chateau Oak timber flooring. 

Character Grade

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

Prime Grade

Clean, contemporary and incredibly stylish timber floor grade: each floorboard has been carefully selected to ensure that the beautiful figuring of the Oak wood is highlighted but only small pre-filled and sanded knots are present.

Prime Plus Grade

Russwood Prime Plus grade of Chateau Oak flooring exclusively features exceptional boards with occasional pin knots selected from our prime grade European Oak. 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, floorboards can be smoked to add rich, deep variations of colour to the palette and adding another 6 colour options.  

View these colours using our flooring colour guide.
