The Chateau Collection

$ 0.00

DuCHÂTEAU® hardwood flooring reflects passion, art in design, and an appreciation for nature. Designed to reflect the styles found in Europe from centuries ago, DuChateau wood floors are antique-styled hard-wax oil floors developed in Holland. With natural changing grain patterns and hand-crafted textures, our hardwood flooring creates a time-worn look that showcases the character and longevity of a true vintage hardwood floor. Combining old world craftsmanship with luxurious modern design, their wood floors' timeless character complements nearly every atmosphere- whether in your own home or in a commercial setting. DuChâteau had a goal to eliminate the traditional waste associated with solid wood floor production of slow growth species while still showcasing their incredible beauty. They achieved their goal by using a mixture of woods to create an advanced flooring option – the ENGINEERED FLOOR. Unlike a solid wood floor, an engineered (multi-ply) floor consists of at least two types of different wood products adhered together. This means that the top layer (what you see when installed) can be a highly desired species of wood, like oak, while the bottom substrate layer (what you don’t see when installed) can be those fast-growing tree species. This manufacturing process allows DuChateau to produce high quality floors with the same robust & luxurious feeling of solid wood flooring within the thickness of that top layer while still sustainably harvesting trees. When installed properly, an engineered floor is virtually indistinguishable from a solid floor! 

DuChateau® was one of the first to bring hard-wax oil to the U.S. market. 

HARD-WAX OILED FLOORS:

  • Offer excellent durability & renewability while allowing the wood to breathe.
  • The unique lustrous finish maximizes the wood’s natural character & beauty- and gains a rich patina & refinement as it ages. 
  • Traditional floor finish used in Europe for centuries- will last for generation after generation.
  • Hard-wax oil integrates with the wood (unlike a polyurethane finish). It penetrates into wood fibers and protects from within.
  • Environmentally friendly natural ingredients- ultra-low VOC finish that is non-toxic with no biocides, no preservatives, and is benzene-free.
  • Hard-wax oil is extremely water repellent and is stain-resistant against water, wine, soda, and coffee.
  • Minimal maintenance—even in high-traffic commercial environments including airports, hotels and restaurants. Spots and scratches can be minimized and often eliminated with buffing and a small application of our maintenance oil.
