Do you have a timber floor but don’t want to go for the standard varnishing or staining? One beautiful alternative that you may not have thought of is liming your floors. Liming creates a whitewashed finish that is very attractive while still allowing your natural timber to shine through. Read on for more.
Liming is a type of coating that is applied to your floors in order to create a beautiful lime washed or whitewashed effect. The coating that is applied is called liming white. Liming can be done to all types of timber floors but it should be noted that the final effect will depend on the type of timber that you have used in your floor. For example, certain timbers can create grey, pink, or brown tones. If you want a whiter floor in these cases, you will have to apply more liming.
The beauty of liming is that it allows the natural timber characteristics to still shine through, such as the grain and knots in the timber. This means that you can create a flaw with its own quirks and idiosyncrasies. Once the liming is applied, it is sealed with a coating.
Liming should be done by a flooring professional that is knowledgeable and experienced in the technique. They should give you a quote for the cost of liming the floors and also let you know how long it will be before you can use your floors again. Ideally, the professional will show you examples of past work.
