Timber Floor Sanding & Staining Sydney

Your hardwood flooring needs a little maintenance at regular intervals to protect and preserve its pristine glory. Floor sanding and staining can give your flooring a brand-new appearance. A floor stain not only enhances the look of your timber but also protects your flooring in the long run. Below are some of the finishes for your wooden flooring that can make it highly durable and functional.

Lime Wash

Limewash is an environmentally friendly natural stain that illuminates your hardwood flooring. The finish is bright and matte, with a milky or chalky texture. Limewashed or whitewashed flooring enunciates the rustic and dreamy beach effect. This type of flooring is suitable for dark themed decor, where your flooring can add light and contrast.

Limewash is an excellent choice for rooms or areas where you have poor natural lighting. Depending upon the type and grade of your wooden flooring, this finish can look anywhere from whitish to greyish hue. The stylish looking floors are more breathable and maintain the air quality inside your living area. Limewash not only protects the natural colour and texture of your floorboards but also keeps the grains looking more natural and softer. 

Modern lime washing techniques make your timber floors durable and long-lasting. Any water-based or oil-based polyurethane sealing looks good for years on limewashed flooring. Maintaining these adoring bright white flooring is also easy with regular mopping and sweeping with a soft-bristled dusting brush.


Glossy floorings are pure luxury and the epitome of style. They can light up your home or commercial building. If you have a small living room or bedroom area, then glossy finishes are perfect for you. They not only make your rooms look large but also adds light and sheen.
