The Broadleaf Tempest Oak flooring collection was inspired by the fabulous texture of driftwood, whose flowing undulations and rich patina shows off the grain of timber to such stunning effect. Each of our Tempest Oak floors has their surface naturally eroded by sand in the same way to create this unique and almost sensual texture before being hand finished in gorgeous multidimensional tones to produce genuinely luxurious floors with a truly designer feel.
Tempest Oak floors are all fully finished with a durable, easy care hardwax oil and ready to walk on the day that they are laid with no further finishing required. They are available as traditional solid floors, or on Strata, our award winning solid oak engineered flooring in various widths and generous lengths. Most options can be used successfully over underfloor heating in line with our installation guidelines - see the table below for dimensions and details. Solid Oak boards will need to be ordered rekilned for this purpose.
In terms of grade, the majority of our Tempest Oak floors are made on our Cottage Oak and feature larger and smaller knots and a spectrum of natural variation. Maestro is made on our Elegance Oak, and features smaller knots only.
