Some of our clients love the look of the freshly sanded wood, in its raw natural state, the CONTEMPORARY FINISH will provide exactly the same protection as the CLASSIC, whilst NOT altering the colour of the bare wood at all.
(Contemporary Ultra Matt on Oak Strip)
(Contemporary Matt on Pitch Pine)
Here we show the difference between the two options on very similar floors, both are 1930's Oak Strip.... to the left the CLASSIC - deeper, richer tones as opposed to the lighter, slightly whitewashed look of the CONTEMPORARY finish to the right.
Prices for Contemporary Finishes are a little more expensive due to the extra process involved. This look works well with modern decor.
