Oak floorboards — the timeless choice for your space

If you’re looking for a way to add traditional warmth and elegance to your rooms, oak flooring is a wonderful option. Beloved through the ages, oak hardwood flooring is durable and strong but elegant and inviting. It can work perfectly in many different rooms and spaces, and you can find all kinds of oak flooring right here.

Our oak and timber floorboards are crafted from sustainably harvested plantation timbers. They are environmentally friendly and are a safer, greener option for your home.

Choosing the Right Colour Floorboards

Grey oak flooring is one of the most popular options, but that doesn’t make it suitable for every room. There are a few key things to look at when you’re considering flooring for your home. They are:

  • The mood of the room — Cool-toned engineered oak flooring creates a formal feeling in the room, while warmer tones give you a feeling of comfort and cosiness. Paler colours will give your room a feeling of airiness and create a brighter room.
  • Natural light — If you don’t get much natural light in the room, you may consider lighter-toned oak wood flooring to make your room feel larger.
  • Colour of the surroundings — Do you want your engineered oak timber flooring to match the other flooring in the home? Or your furniture? Having the same flooring throughout your home can increase the feeling of spaciousness. If that isn’t as important, picking new and different flooring for each room can be a fun option.

FAQs & Advice

What is engineered timber flooring?

Engineered timber flooring is constructed with a thin layer of timber (usually ranging from 3-6mm) known as a ‘veneer’ (in our case European Oak) coated with a protective finish, on top of a thicker base known as a ‘substrate’. This multi-ply cross lamination construction makes the flooring less susceptible to expansion and contraction with temperature and humidity changes. We utilise fast growing plantation timbers for a far more sustainable product. These are cross-laminated to provide greater stability.

What is oak flooring?

Oak flooring is constructed with wood from oak trees. Oak makes an excellent flooring material due its wide variety of available colours and grades, durability and sustainability.


Solid oak floorboards are made out of a single piece of oak wood, whereas engineered oak flooring uses a top layer of oak wood bonded to a cross laminated thicker base – making it less likely to expand and contract with temperature changes. 

How to clean floorboards?

  1. Use a soft-bristle broom, microfibre cloth or vacuum cleaner with a soft brush head to pick any dust and dirt. 
  2. Use a timber-friendly mop (cotton is best) and cleaner to wipe down the surface of your floorboards. We recommend WOCA Natural Soap for oiled wood floors and WOCA Master Cleaner for lacquered finish wood floors. Never use any domestic cleaning products as these tend to be caustic and could easily damage the coating. pH neutral is best.


Very dirty floors can be cleaned with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner before applying everyday use cleaner.


For areas where floors receive average wear and tear, we recommend cleaning timber flooring once a week. More frequent cleaning may be required for high-traffic areas or homes with pets. Mats at entry points is an ideal way to trap excess dirt and grit.

Are floorboards expensive?

The cost of floorboards in Australia vary depending on the species and coatings, the size of the flooring area and the grading. Royal Oak Floors’ floorboards are available in three grades:


  • Mixed grade – our standard range and contains larger and more frequent knot content compared to the Premium grade. It contains some colour variation and variable grain pattern.
  • Feature grade –  typically exhibits much more frequent and larger knots. Also features character such as cracks (filled), sapwood, variation in grain pattern and colour. The most character filled flooring we carry.
  • Premium grade – considered a cleaner look with minimal knots and variation. It is the highest grade of flooring we provide.

How to care for floorboards?

Follow these tips to keep your oak and timber floorboards looking their best: 


  • Every 2-3 days, do a simple sweep with a soft-bristle broom or microfibre cleaner to remove dust and dirt.
  • Once a week, use a timber-friendly mop and cleaner to wipe down the surface of your floorboards. 
  • For spot repairs, use a repair oil on oiled or lacquered timber floors. Rub repair oil on the damaged floor using a lint-free cloth and buff off immediately. Let dry for 24 hours before re-applying if necessary.
  • Use a floor cleaner sprayed on a damp cloth to remove scuffs and marks.
  • Avoid scratches to your oak floor by putting felt pads under chair and table legs.
  • Protect floors from harsh sunlight. Install UV film on windows and draw curtains and blinds. UV light will damage any floor over time.

Are floorboards durable?

Yes! If properly maintained, floorboards are durable and can last for decades.
