We fitted solid oak flooring and steps in this beautiful house on the borders of Monmouthshire fifteen years ago. All in natural oak Osmo finish. However, the customers wanted to change the colour from natural to a rich dark look to compliment the furniture. ATC went in recently re-sanded back and applied Ebony from the Osmo range - the result totally transformed the rooms.
Just goes to show that when you invest in a solid oak floor you will have years of pleasure from it, then if you want to change the colour, you can and it will still outlive all of us. Just gets better as it gets older - like us all!
