Antique Reclaimed Oak Flooring

FSC® Certified

Our antique reclaimed oak flooring boards have been hand scraped to create a gentle undulation to the surface of the board. This gives a worn, old-world feel to sustainable recreate the look of antique reclaimed oak flooring. We use the most characterful parts of the oak tree to give you classic, natural knots and colour variation. Available in unfinished, oiled and lacquered finishes.

We can supply any quantity of our floor ranges, if we don’t have the right wood flooring for your requirements, as a UK based manufacturer we can make bespoke wood flooring for you, subject to minimum quantities of 500 m2.

Please browse our wood flooring ranges online and add free samples to your basket or call 01666 504015 to discuss a project and obtain floor estimating advice.


It can take many years for oak flooring to reach this well-worn, distressed stage, but through unique hand scraping and brushing techniques, we can speed up the process and create boards that look just like reclaimed antique oak.

The Solid Wood Flooring Company offers a wide range of beautifully crafted antique oak flooring to bring a luxurious, old world feel to any domestic or commercial interior.

Our craftsmen work hard to ensure that the features of our antique oak boards do not compromise their strength and durability, so you can enjoy all the benefits of solid or engineered oak flooring with a unique aged appearance.

Oak Flooring for Listed Buildings

The Solid Wood Flooring Company's antique oak wood flooring is approved by the listed planning office and has been used by architects and designers for numerous projects in Grade I and Grade II-listed properties.

In some cases, the original wood flooring has become rotten, while in others major refurbishments needed to be carried out and some or all of the floors had to be replaced.

Because the appearance of our antique oak floors comes so close to that of real heritage wood, it is ideal for use in listed buildings where maintaining the original features is essential.

Antique floors for Period Properties

The characteristics of antique oak flooring also make it ideal for use in period homes and commercial environments like pubs, clubs and restaurants that require an old world ambiance.

A contemporary wood floor would look completely out of place in a domestic environment full of period features like old fireplaces and sculpted banisters. It could also negatively impact the value of the property.

Heritage oak boards can be installed to complement these original features and create a floor than looks as though it's been walked on for a century or more.

Similarly, antique flooring can be used in commercial environments to retain the time-worn character of the interior while ensuring floors are tough enough to withstand high levels of customer traffic year after year.

Antique Oak Flooring Options

The Solid Wood Flooring Company can provide hand-distressed antique oak flooring to your exact specifications, whether you're restoring the floors in a listed building, renovating a period home or refurbishing a country pub.

We offer both solid and engineered antique oak boards in shades of natural, smoked and burnt oak and in width of 150mm or 189mm. Our floors can be finished with matt lacquer or wood oils, depending on the look you require.

We also have a range of rustic grade floors with knots and burrs that add a real rugged character to any interior.

Because we buy direct from the manufacturers, the prices we're able to offer on our antique oak wood floors are extremely competitive. Contact us now to order free samples or to find out more about the products we offer.
