Oak Flooring In A Refectory?
If you're worried about whether oak flooring is up to the wear and tear in your home's dining room, designers and architects, Craft312 Studio certainly weren't when they fitted out this facility in Ankara, Turkey.
It's not clear whether this is engineered oak flooring or solid, but either way, it looks absolutely stunning.
Long runs like this really suit the use of wide board oak and we'd guess they've used 140mm wide boards here, although we'd probably have gone the whole hog and used longer boards too (many of the boards we supply are 3 metres long!).
If you apply a few coats of Blanchon Hard Wax Oil or Osmo Polyx Oil to your unfinished boards, you should have no fears when it comes to the likelihood of food and drink spillages. A simple, regular wipe over with a product like Osmo's Wash and Care will keep a floor like this looking tip top.
It is possible over time, that the constant scraping of chair legs across the floor will result in a dulling of the sheen. If this occurs, simply clean the area thoroughly and re-apply the hard wax oil finish to restore the floor to its former glory.
