When paired with the right colours and limit your decorating to only the essentials you could actually take advantage of the mystique of dark floors. Swiss Hardwoods-Castle Brown engineered floor is perfect whether it is for an open-concept home or a smaller office space, this floor with its oiled surface matte finish and smooth wood grain contributes to the minimalist style in your decorating. With the oiled surface and matt finish of this floor, you can feel the grain of the wood, sensual and karmic to the soul, unlike lacquered floors that are built up by layers of acrylic, essentially creating a barrier between you and your flooring. At Swiss Hardwoods, we use Rubio Monocoat® Fire Retardant Oil as our surface coating. Plant-based with no chemicals and is 100% VOC free, safe to use and great for the environment.
