Wood Floor Covering

This wood floor covering from Ruckstuhl is gorgeous but I’m not sure of it’s real world applications. Bamboo floor mats are great because they are durable and light but “oiled-oak” doesn’t sound too appealing. The polyurethane added may be the special ingredient that makes these floor coverings work.

We also love the coir and sisal floor coverings.

    What they mean by ‘oiled’ is nothing more than a linseed-based oil that dries to a hard, durable finish (and smells good, too). It’s perfectly all right to walk on it. Just don’t use any oils that have petroleum by-products in them (like Watco).
