A light and transparent tone. Resembles planed oak with a touch of white. Has a clean general appearance and is suited for the streamlined Nordic interior decoration style.
Note! Sanded is available only with wax oiled.
When choosing a wood species, it is important to consider the different characteristics of each species, such as durability and appearance. Read about tree species and their characteristics at the bottom of the page. The choice affects the price of the product.
Patterned wooden flooring is also available in this tone. The different patterns are shown on the patterned wooden flooring page. Due to the extensiveness of our product range, our website does not contain images of all the available variations. The choice affects the price of the product.
The product is available in several widths. The width affects both the price and the installation method. Examples of this are 230 mm products that are glued from the end tongue and grooves, and 270 mm products that are always glued to the underlay. Patterned wooden flooring is always installed by gluing it to the underlay. The choice affects the price of the product.
Knottiness – that is, the grade of the wood – refers to the amount of knots and natural variations in tone of the different tree species.
Select is an almost knot-free grade that is as evenly-toned as can be. Available for oak, ash and larch.
Classic is the most natural grade, with small and medium-sized knots and holes filled with wood cement as well as the variations in shade that are natural for wood.
Larch Natural grade is characterised by knottiness and significant colour variations. Filled knots, as well as round knot patches and oval patches are allowed within the grade. Available for larch.
Vintage is the knottiest and most coarse-grained grade, with no limit on the number or size of knots. Even cracks and large knot holes filled with wood cement are allowed.
Olive is an ash grade with a dark heartwood alongside a light sapwood.
The Design grade is its own grade of patterned wooden flooring, and is similar to the Classic grade.
Surface treatment refers to surface sanding or brushing. Brushing raises the grain pattern of the wood to the surface, exposing the structure. The brushed surface is comfortable to stand on barefoot and is recommended for families with pets and children, as scratches are not as visible as they are on smooth-polished surfaces. Sanded surfaces are flat and smooth, which facilitates cleaning. The choice does not affect the price of the product.
Our products are available with a choice of two finishes: hard wax oil or matte lacquer. Both finishes are UV-cured, making them moisture-repellent and easy to care for. The hard wax-oiled surface is not slippery and can be repaired in places if necessary. It does not require regular maintenance oiling (such as natural oiling), but is waxed according to wear. The matte-lacquered surface provides greater abrasion resistance, and is therefore an excellent choice for lobbies, hallways and kitchens, for instance. The choice does not affect the price.
The product is available with either 5G WiseLoc locking joints or conventional adhesive joints. Some products or widths are available with only a glued tongue and groove (e.g. 270 mm wide product and patterned wooden flooring). The choice does not affect the price.
Note: Lacquered Sky White available only in sanded treatment.
Oak Sky White is one of our most popular shades. It is slightly bleached, and slightly lighter and cooler in tone than shades such as Nordic and Snöhettä. Perfect for many different styles and interiors.
White matte lacquering is one of the most traditional flooring treatments, and has been in production for decades. White matte lacquering whitens the wood’s surface tone while allowing the wood’s natural tone and grain pattern to shine through. Our wooden flooring is available with a white matte varnish for oak and ash.

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.
”Pidän siitä miten kauniisti elämisen jäljet sulautuvat parkettiin”
Downstairs we have 150 mm Sky White Herringbone Oak Classic hard wax-oiled wooden flooring, and upstairs we have 185 mm Oak Classic Sky White brushed hard wax-oiled flooring. The stairs have edging on the steps, which are made of the same flooring material. Installed in May 2020. Detached house, two small children and two adults, no pets.
It was long clear to us that we would get a Timberwise floor. Timberwise is a family-run business, provides excellent, personalised customer service as well as good recommendations and a wide range of options. All these factors made our minds up for us. Timberwise provides large sample pieces in nearby shops so that prospective customers can get a realistic idea of the colour and style of the wooden flooring. Being able to combine styles in the same shade was important to us too. The stairs are made of the same material, and we ordered the step edgings from Timberwise as well.
Flooring is one of the most visible parts of a home, and it needs to last. It’s worth investing in. I’m especially impressed with the glued wooden flooring that was laid downstairs. It’s sturdy and warm on the feet. The wooden flooring laid with tongue and groove joints is of very high quality. The joints did not break, and so there was no waste at all.
Timberwise has a broad selection, and above all it’s a Finnish family-run business. I also like how attractively the traces of living blend into the wooden flooring.
“Safety, durability, Finnish origin – and of course it looks fabulous”
Our floor is Oak Classic Sky white 185 mm and it was installed in 2017. Our home is a detached house, and the family consists of two adults and two children, who are five and eight years of age. We have no pets.
The Timberwise brand was already familiar to us. I had read about the features of the product before, and we had practically no other options on our shortlist. The main requirements were safety, durability, Finnish origin – and, of course, it had to look fabulous. The brushed and hard wax-oiled surface feels pleasant underfoot.
The end result has lived up to our expectations, which were quite high. We are very pleased with the quality, and the wooden flooring has stood up very well to family life.
