An oak floor has beautiful wood drawings, a timeless and natural look and can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.

That is why it is important to thoroughly orientate yourself on the many options when you are going to buy an oak floor. At Uipkes you can put together your oak floor completely to measure, so you can choose from:

  • 17 laying patterns
  • 90 exclusive colours
  • Various thicknesses and length and width measurements
  • Wood grades

Sustainable oak floors

All our oak floors are made from wood that comes from sustainably managed European forests. If you buy an oak floor from Uipkes, you therefore contribute to the preservation of the forests.

Moreover, there is no plastic in a wooden floor, as is the case with PVC floors and laminate. Wood is a natural product and renewable. A wooden floor is therefore a good investment to make your home more sustainable.

17 unique installation patterns

Oak floors are easy to work with, so you can have the floorboards installed in all kinds of patterns. In addition to the traditional plank floor, the popular herringbone pattern and the chevron pattern, variations on these laying patterns are also possible.

Examples include the Elbow Pattern, the Chevron Pattern Continuus, and the Double Herringbone.

Wide choice of dimensions and wood grades

The dimensions and the wood grading of the oak floorboards influence the appearance of the floor. For example, narrow floorboards make the oak floor busier and wide floorboards with many knots fit beautifully with a rural interior.

To create the desired effect, we offer you a wide choice of sizes and wood grades.

Oak floor with underfloor heating

Oak wood in the form of engineered wood flooring can be combined well with underfloor heating. This parquet floor is a layered wooden floor. The floor consists of a layer of cross-glued waterproof birch plywood with a layer of solid oak on top.

The construction of these oak parquet floors ensures that the heat from the underfloor heating can pass through the wood properly and that the wood hardly reacts to fluctuations in temperature and moisture content.

Single point of contact for the floor and underfloor heating

At Uipkes we can take care of installing the underfloor heating and the wooden floor. As a result, you only have one point of contact for your project and the costs are lower.
