Changing colour

Wood is a natural product that slowly develops its natural colour. This happens especially in the early days and it enhances the character of flooring made ​​from real wood.

Changes through the natural UV radiation in light

Wood can become darker or lighter with age, or change its shade.
Exotic woods in particular change in colour very quickly and rather markedly.

Stained wood

These woods change their colour somewhat differently. Sunlight has hardly any effect on the stain used. It does, however, have an effect on the underlying wood substrate, whereby the colours (e.g. white) become slightly yellow – exactly the same effect as with wood that has not been stained. However, the dark stains protect the wood more and the surface is less affected than a surface that has not been stained.

Smoked wood

The colour tones of smoked wood hardly change at all. Smoked oak only lightens slightly through exposure to sunlight and becomes more golden.


With the surface sealant B-Protect®, you retain the naturalness of the wood despite the sealing. The special advantage of the surface: even after prolonged exposure to sunlight, the appearance only changes to a minimal degree.
