fumed oak wood doors

Take European Oak and fume it with ammonia to achieve a rich dark chocolate brown with the occasional blonde strip and you have Fumed Oak.  Hugely popular despite the price tag, it is a beautiful option and extremely elegant. 

Have a look at some of the examples below of Fumed Oak in our clients homes. 

1. The Shutter House: Rondo V fumed oak front door

This elegant home in the South of England got us very excited when we saw the images. Mainly because it is a perfect example of a Fumed Oak door and how well it works with other timbers. 

Fumed Oak in itself is a regal wood with lovely pattern and blonde strips so pairing it with a painted RAL frame may seem odd. But these photos prove that it can be a success. Add a hand cast bronze handle as the finishing touch and you have the perfect front doorset. Going for a dark wood to compliment the light timber is a great way to give the door a Wow factor and add interest.

The door is our Rondo V e80 hinged doorset in Fumed Oak with a painted grey RAL frame with our Option BZ2 Bronze handle.

2. Contemporary house + fumed oak front door

This contemporary designed house features our fabulous Rondo V in Fumed Oak with painted RAL side lites which work very well with the copper overhang/ entry detail.   The door in this dark colour creates quite a classical look with the bronze handles and detail.  The house features two of our E80 doorsets one as a pivot and one as a side door in a hinged version.

Combining bronze and fumed oak sets a very classic contemporary feeling and is very classy

3. Terano front door & Parma garage door in fumed oak

It's never a simple task to modernise a traditional brick house and to make it fit a more contemporary look. On this house they've used the Terano E80 hinged doorset with a side lite and to update the garages Parma fumed oak up and over garage doors.

The Fumed Oak doors on this occasion are a mix of blonde and dark brown and have lightened over a period of about 6 months.
