Wood floors – why replace when you can renovate with style!

Discover Bona Inspiration, a new floor styling system designed to make renovated wood floors explode with beauty and character. Bona’s new, customised looks range from natural bright to liquorice black and will help you and your clients avoid the limitations of new, pre-finished wood floors.  They can retain their existing floor but still give a room or their whole home a completely new look and feel. From a sustainability perspective it makes sense too – the old floor has already been manufactured and transported.  Many home owners aren’t aware of what can be done with existing (or new, unfinished) wood floors. Bona can help you find them a new floor style that’s just right.

The five new wood floor styles have been developed in collaboration with the internationally recognised trend analyst, Cay Bond, who has more than 30 years’ experience of trends within fashion, design and interiors.  She said, “I think the value of the floor is underestimated. Despite being a major part of our interior environment, floors get very little attention. With a cleverly restored floor, a room and a home can change drastically. Personality and culture can be expressed through the choice of flooring.”

Each of the five Inspiration styles comprise a variety of looks for the floor which can be achieved by using a combination of Bona’s sanding and brushing methods, varnishes, oils and paints. The five styles, Nordic Shimmer, Garden Atmosphere, Malibu Dreams, Touch of Grace and New Modern, include everything from dark, rustic floors to floors with a pale, lacquered finish.
