Color Matched Prefinished Hardwood Floors

Looking for a custom colored hardwood floor that you can’t find elsewhere? You could have it done the old fashioned way by calling in a crew to install, stain and finish, but that sometimes doesn’t get the right results. Not to mention the time and inconvenience involved.

Need To Match Another Product?

Maybe you saw another prefinished product whose color is just right but the manufacturer only offers it in one width. This is a situation many run into particularly with the popularity of wider plank floors. The table below shows what we can handle.

Random Width Plank

Random width plank is another popular style, but major manufacturers offer little flexibility. Often it’s five or six inches wide and that’s it. The Imagination Key Largo 4¼, 5¼ and 6¼ inch shown is an example of our options.

3/4 Inch Random Width

Don't Want To Pay High Retail?

I’ve sold some of the more well known higher end brands in the likes of Mirage and Lauzon. I was also a top tier dealer which required buying their expensive display systems to get the best pricing. I know the pricing structure and some dealers go overboard on markup. An example could be a product cost of $ 8.50 per square foot that retails for $ 16.00. It’s almost insane but many are lured into buying.

Our custom coloring can shave that cost up to 35% ¹ and chances are great our specifications exceed theirs. One to eight foot board lengths with the engineered offering a 5.2 mm wear layer.

Other Options

If you’ve found a product that has some form of distressed appearance we can work with you on that as well. Our specialty is a soft wire brushing effect offering a cerused appearance. Ceruse allows a two toned look. By way of explanation; once the wire brushing is completed, a white/limed color coat is applied, then followed up with the primary color seen in the example of the custom grey below.

What You Need To Know

In order to get the right balance of color if you should be matching cabinets for example, we need varying shades of the hardwood chosen. A cabinet door with a balance of varied character or color works ideally. The more the better. The example below shows a mild character white oak getting ready to be custom colored. Notice the varying underlying colors and grain? This is vital with color matching as we cannot duplicate a color without it.
