A creamy light tone that is classic and subdued. Cream is suited for warm and soft-toned interiors. The brushing of the surface subtly brings out the wood’s grain pattern.


“Quality flooring ages like wine and doesn’t sag”

Our floor is 185 mm Oak Classic Cream (brushed and hard wax-oiled) and was installed in 2016. Our home is an apartment in a house built in 1913. There are just two residents, no pets.

Timberwise is a Finnish company that makes environmentally friendly products, which fits our values. Our home is a valuable apartment in the centre of Helsinki, so the floor also had to suit the dignified atmosphere of the apartment. But it also had to be comfortable and understated, and a harmonious match for our bohemian interior. Our floor meets all these requirements. After almost five years, I’m still entirely satisfied with our choice. Timberwise’s flooring is first-class and stands the test of time beautifully – even in the hallway and kitchen. High-quality flooring ages like wine, and does not sag. I’d go so far as to say that a Timberwise floor in an old house only gets better with time, becoming a perfect part of the overall interior.

I have designed dozens of Timberwise floors. It also says something that over the years I have received nothing but positive customer feedback about them.

Oak Cream is beautifully subdued, and as the name implies is cream in tone, making it a perfect alternative to a shade of red or grey for a floor.

All types of wood can be damaged by excessively dry indoor air. If the relative humidity of the indoor air falls below the recommended level of 35 to 60%, cracks may appear in the floor. To prevent this, remember to monitor the humidity of the indoor air, especially during winter and other dry periods. Add moisture to the air if necessary, for example with a humidifier. Larch reacts most sensitively to dry indoor air, and hairline cracks or fissures may appear more quickly than with other woods. The optimal relative humidity level for wood, 35 to 60%, is also the optimal indoor humidity for humans.
