Colours in wooden floors world
Hardwood floors doesn’t have to be a sea of brown. The traditional and classic choice of home owners is brown colour and it’s varies, but these days we see an interest in new visions and more colourful designs of home and office interiors and also wood floors. Universally available finish colours suggest wonderful array of whites, browns, blacks and reds and even blue ones!
Traditionally, hardwood flooring came in thick planks of solid timber. Today, solid hardwood is still widely available, but many of our clients also prefer an engineered flooring. It is made of planks with a thinner top layer of hardwood, bonded to other layers and designed to prevent the floor from shifting during expansion or contraction cycles.
Solid wood from other side is generally installed over one or two layers of plywood, which can raise the height of a floor and interfere with existing doors or marginally reduced ceiling height but their long lasting is a big advantage! Choose carefully and contact with experts if you have new ideas for the colour of your floors, because some engineered floors have top layers so thin that they can’t be sanded and refinished in the future, and solid particles of pigment suspended in a solvent, applied to wood to darken or change its natural colour, but if you want to get out of the brown one you need to take advantage of flooring samples and choose the best for you with the help of our experts!
