Typical Cork Color Variation
Cork flooring...expect color and shade variations
Our prefinished cork floors are a natural product, and color variations between planks are to be expected. For best overall color or shade appearance install wood products from several boxes at a time. Color variations should be intermingled.
Interestingly, the patch work of shade variations one may seek to avoid is the very reason why many desire the exotic styles of flooring. Defects of course are to be sorted or culled out. If you are looking for more uniformity in color or shade you may want to consider our stained floors.
Cork floors can lighten or fade in color do to extreme sunlight exposure. To help, install blinds, curtains, or other types of window treatment to minimize the suns UV rays onto the flooring.
