  • You want to go with the latest fashion trend
  • To create contrast against bold and colourful interiors
  • Give your home a luxury feel
  • Frequently change the style of your home and would like a flooring that would match most interior styles.


When your flooring has been installed and stained in the colour of your choice, you can also opt for additional finishes on top of this. Additional finishes are becoming more popular as they provide further protection against high traffic areas and every day wear and tear.


Remember once your flooring is installed and finished, it will last you a lifetime if properly cared for and maintained.
