Synonymous with quality, Royal Oak Floors is committed to providing customers with premium European Oak flooring. As experts within the field of engineered timber, Royal Oak Floors has taken the organic next step in opening a new Sydney showroom in Surry Hills.

With over 40 years of experience within the design and construction industry, the Surry Hills showroom joins the Royal Oak Floors flagship store in Melbourne. Reflecting the company’s emphasis on crafting distinctive and dynamic spaces, both showroom spaces are reflective of the inspirational innovation and luxury infused within each timber product.

The Architect Collection is comprised of a series of tones, tongue and grooved with a matte finish, placing the spotlight on natural knots and timber features.

Specialising in wide board engineered European oak timber flooring, Royal Oak Floors brings years of industry knowledge to the Sydney destination, a space that is both interactive and immersive. The latest showroom provides customers with the opportunity to physically engage with timber products, mix and match a number of finish options and compare complementary or contrasting tones that will best suit their interior spaces.

Applicable to a range of interiors, the engineered flooring products are available in 22 over 20 shades and finishes. Expertly manufactured and with a considered dedication to providing sustainable alternatives to the current market, Royal Oak Floors is committed to environmentally sustainable harvested timber. The company works with PEFC certified mills, seeing the supply chain closely managed to monitor sustainable forestry practices. Likewise, all floorboards can be re-sanded and re-finished over time to maintain their durability and longevity.

Imbued with a timeless aesthetic, Royal Oak Floors currently offers two collections – Architect and Artisan – seeing both evoke a refined charm and a tactile, natural warmth within spaces. The Architect Collection is comprised of a series of tones, tongue and grooved with a matte finish, showcasing mixed grade knots and features. The Artisan Collection purposefully highlights the natural oak grain of timber and the treatment of the timber is hand worked to enhance each board’s characteristics – available in a variety of dimensions, supplied as tongue and grooved and pre-finished. There are also options available in both parquetry styles of herringbone and chevron.

Championing quality timber products, Royal Oak Floors continues to innovate within the timber flooring industry. Designed as a location for the architecture and design community to celebrate quality design, as well as an opportunity for homeowners to see what products are available, the new Sydney showroom is an elegant new home for Royal Oak Floors.
