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.
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.

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
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.
