Country Homes & Interiors - - ROOM IDEAS -

Tread the boards with ut­most con­fi­dence – there’s a wood paint fin­ish to suit ev­ery coun­try home.

Need to know…

Whether you’re lay­ing new boards or lift­ing a car­pet to re­veal orig­i­nals, the cor­rect fin­ish will pro­vide your wood floor with a pro­tec­tive bar­rier. A coat of lye fol­lowed by wood soap gives the clas­sic limed look, but trans­par­ent wood wax fin­ishes in translu­cent white, grey or any colour that still shows the grain are eas­ier to ap­ply. Com­plete with a hard-wear­ing floor wax or oil. These are not as tough as var­nish, but they give a rus­tic ef­fect with the bonus that they can be eas­ily re­paired.

Where to buy…

•Auro for lye and wood soap fin­ishes.

•Liberon for floor wax and oil.

•Osmo for trans­par­ent wax fin­ishes.
