2017 WFOY: Best Color and Finish

Artistic Floors by Design
Parker, Colorado

CATEGORY DETAILS:
Entries in this category include jobsite applied applications of dyes, reactive colorants, layered colors, and faux finishing.

WHAT MAKES THIS FLOOR UNIQUE:
Each board was custom colored to create a random reclaimed look on newly milled white oak. Twenty-five different processes were used creating a unique look on each board.
The base colors included four stain colors, three dyes, three clear stains, and three reactives. The layering colors over each other produced more than 25 custom colorant processes. The finishing system was a three-coat system of the finish manufacturer.
