In human perception parquet floor or solid wood floor usually has natural wood colour and real wood texture.
However, lots of manufacturers stand far from classic look and search for new colour solutions for parquet or solid wood floor. If the traditional or exotic wood species (usually they are rather expensive) become scarce, it is possible to apply toning for parquet or solid wood.
Therefore, it is not easy and sometimes impossible to find a standard skirting board for parquet or solid wood floor.
Our company offers a veneer skirting board to be toned. The skirting board is made of built-up solid spruce covered with oak veneer or uncoated cork. Skirting board is mounted on hidden fasteners.
The way of toning should be chosen depending on colour of parquet or solid wood floor the skirting board is chosen for.
There are several ways to change the colour of skirting boards and achieve full colour match with the existing flooring:
The advantage of professional systems is the colouring material for parquet board dries out in few hours (from 3 to 24). During this period, it is possible to work with the surface, bringing it to a desired result. In addition, by using such toning substances, large surfaces could be treated simultaneously without risk of getting different colour in different areas due to fast drying.
Impregnation of wood by shading stain requires shade selection by sampling. Comparing with professional systems, the stain dries within a few minutes (usually 15-20).
Two other common substances for wood colouring - varnishes and oil. Toning oil is applied to pretreated surface with further rubbing into the surface. The procedure should be repeated several times to achieve the desired shade. Toning oil comes deep into wood structure, so usually additional treatment by varnish is not needed.
As a result, you get a perfect combination of your flooring and skirting boards, which is an integral part of the interior.
