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!

7 HARD WOODS

TOP 7 HARDEST WOODS:
1. Quebracho – From the Spanish “quebrar hacha,” which literally means
“axe breaker.” Aptly named, wood in the Schinopsis genus is among the
heaviest and hardest in the world.
2. Lignum Vitae -Widely accepted as the hardest wood in the world–this
wood has been listed as an endangered species and is listed in CITES.
Consider Verawood as a very close substitute.
3. Gidgee – This Australian endemic is both very heavy and very strong.
Some pieces are dark enough to be used as an ebony substitute: one that’s
even harder than the original article.
4. Snakewood – It’s easy to see what makes Snakewood so unique–its patterns
and markings resemble the skin of a snake. Limited supply and high demand
make this one of the most expensive woods on eart.
5. Verawood – Sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, this wood is a gem:
inexpensive, great olive-green color, beautiful feathery grain pattern, and
it takes a great natural polish on the lathe.
6. Camelthorn – Formerly classified as a member of the Acacia genus, this
south African hardwood is a tough customer. The wood is stubbornly hard,
and the tree is protected by giant sharp thorns.
7. African Blackwood – In some parts of the world, this wood has achieved
an almost legendary status. Historical evidence points to this wood
(rather than Diospyros spp.) being the original “ebony.”
