Grading systems

Wood is a natural product. Some types of wood – beech, for example – have a relatively calm grain. Others, like oak, are rich in structure, with a spectrum of calm to rustic. We offer a wide selection for you to choose from

Wood is a product of nature – each tree has its own structure and individual colour combination. An image or a sample will therefore never be able to give you a complete picture of the finished floor. Please also note that the colour may change when exposed to light.

As a guideline, darker wood species will get a more golden tone, whereas lighter species will become slightly darker.
