The real wood products capture all the rustic qualities of wood and bring the very essence of nature into your home. Each floorboard is unique, enriched with naturally occurring characteristics such as knots of various sizes, flared grain patterns, burls, sapwood and mineral streaks. These are characteristics of each species’ individual growth process, and are all influenced by region, sunlight, climate and the soil. There are two types of knots; live knots which showcase the beautiful density of the spiral grain and dead knots which are repaired with a rich coloured filler. Any splits or cracks are filled and add a lively character to the unmistakable quality of a natural product. The colour variation within each plank reflects naturally occurring mineral and sapwood streaks and are even further enhanced when stained or treated.
IT’S A GREAT INVESTMENT An Elka floor is always a quality floor, so replacing it will be something you won’t have to worry about for years or even decades. By selecting one of Elka floors, you are choosing a style that has remained a desirable and attractive part of interiors . Unlike a carpet or piece of upholstery, engineered or solid wood are floors that simply become more beautiful as time goes on.
A FLOOR THAT’S ALWAYS IN FASHION A well made, quality wood or laminate floor from elka will never go out of style. Its subtle, warm tones will always perfectly complement the surrounding interiors no matter what interior design changes may occur over time. This adaptability is a key reason why an elka floor remains the favourite choice for many homeowners.
