If you have timber flooring in your
home and would like to do something different from the usual finishing and
staining, perhaps you may like to try a white lime wash on your floorboards.
Liming produces a lighter,
white-washed wooden floor effect which is equally as beautiful and modern as
other stains and finishes. It is a
particularly good choice for small spaces, which benefit from a lighter,
brighter look to obain the illusion of more space.
How do we produce the White Lime Wash effect on wooden floors?
We apply several layers of lime to
the floor, depending on the degree of whiteness you desire. After just a few layers of lime, you can
expect your floor to have a more translucent light tone while keeping the appearance
and texture of wood. A white lime wash
will not detract from its original character.
Nor does it create a single colour block: just as the wood itself varies
in tone, so too does the lime wash effect achieved through using this method on
And rather than producing a single
layer of finish on the surface of the wood, our thorough lime washing method
soaks deep into the wood, so that any scratches to the floor reveal the same
tone as on the outer surface.
