Why we like it?
- This floor works with any design style – it’s not too light, not too yellow. It’s actually close to a raw wood colour.
- It’s a mixed grade floor; some planks have knots, others are clean. Some planks have several knots on them. Note, the knots are machine filled with a matching filler, meaning the floor still looks modern.
- This plank is wider than our standard finishes of 190mm, but at a more affordable price than our French Oak floors in our Clissold range.
- An oiled floor that works in a busy family environment. This floor has two coats of Ciranova oil (basically the BMW of wood oils). The floor is brushed between coats meaning the oil sits deep within the floor structure, improving performance.
- Easy to maintain – As this is a straight forward finish, any marks can be easily repaired through the use of inexpensive maintenance oils.
- Easy to fit – our floors are accurately milled and then finished in Belgium. Kite is also a fitting business; any floor we sell has always been fitted prior to sale.
- Great Value – Due to the quality of oils and accuracy of the milling, we believe this to be one of the best value floors on the market.
Why look elsewhere?
- There is very little reason why you shouldn’t go for the Lewis floor. It will look good everywhere.
- This floor does have knots. If you’re looking for a more consistent colour, then the floor needs to have less knots. It also helps if the floor is stained prior to applying the top coat of oil. This happens with our more premium floors.
- Consider going for a cleaner grade (so less knots). Less knots will cost more money, but gives a more modern look
- If you’re looking for a super clean look, with very few colour variations, you will need a stronger oil. Look at our Silvia or Lulu floor in our Clissold Range.
- If you have a very large room, say greater than 6m in width, a wider plank may look better. We can offer this floor on a bespoke basis.
