With our level of skill and craftsmanship we are able to
provide our customers with creative and new ways of working with hardwood. Our goal is to empower you to have the unique
floor that really grounds your overall interior design. Areas where we have developed this
customization are: Borders, Inlays, Staircase
Borders - The use of borders can help define a space as well
as set-off a design element within the floor.
A border is a frame that typically follows the dimensions of a room. The
wood species used in a border can compliment or contrast the wood species used
in the main floor. Borders don’t necessarily have to be a wood product. They
can include stone, tile, brass or other decorative metals.
Inlays – Inlays or medallions are usually installed within
the main body of the floor. They can introduce personal significance in the
form of a family crest or nautical compass. A popular area for these design
elements include: foyer or entry, office
or dining room.
Staircase – Covering
a staircase with hardwood is a great way to make a bold design statement.
Maintaining a consistent flooring surface can add that finishing touch that is
typically left out. This type of design element can really make for a grand
feature that compliments your house and can make it stand apart from others in
Stains – Staining a floor is a great way to make it your
own. There is a large variety of stock stain colors. If there isn’t quite the
color you want, we can custom mix to get the stain color of your choosing. Staining a hardwood floor can really bring
together different surface color elements as well as provide a foundation to
build your interior design pallet.
Please keep in mind, there are wood species that do not take stain
evenly and are not good candidates for staining. Our design specialists will
work with you to find proper alternatives in this situation.
