The Specialist Buyers Guide for the Interior Design Contract Market
Discover Bona Inspiration, a new floor styling system designed to make a renovated wood floor explode with beauty and character. Bona’s new, customised looks range from natural bright to liquorice black and will help you avoid the limitations of new, pre-finished floors. A Bona certified contractor will handle the dust-free sanding and renovation work, and use Bona’s latest brushing and finishing techniques to create something unique for your client. They can retain their existing floor but still give a room or their whole home a completely new look and feel. From a sustainability perspective it makes sense too – the old floor has already been manufactured and transported. Many home owners aren’t aware of what can be done with existing wooden floors. Bona can help you find them a new floor style that’s just right.
The five new wood floor styles have been developed in collaboration with the internationally recognised trend analyst, Cay Bond, who has more than 30 years’ experience of trends within fashion, design and interiors. She said, “I think the value of the floor is underestimated. Despite being a major part of our interior environment, floors get very little attention. With a cleverly restored floor, a room and a home can change drastically. Personality and culture can be expressed through the choice of flooring. With a variety of inspirational styles, we want to showcase the possibilities and creative solutions for the right ambience. Nowadays, people apply their personality to their home and interior style. A home showcases your personal identity more than anything else. The floor has an incredibly important role to play in this.”
Patrik Mellnert, Product Manager at Bona, added, “We have developed a concept which can create just the right style and effect on a wood floor using our products and techniques. With the right treatment, you can preserve the soul of the floor while producing a whole new look without installing a new floor. With Bona’s extensive product range, and the expertise of one of our Bona Certified Contractors, you can make magic from an existing floor in only a few hours.”
The Bona Inspiration concept includes a palette encompassing a range of interior design styles in which the wooden floors play an important role. Each style can be achieved by using Bona’s sanding and brushing methods, varnishes, oils and paints. The five styles, Nordic Shimmer, Garden Atmosphere, Malibu Dreams, Touch of Grace and New Modern, include everything from dark, rustic floors to floors with a pale, lacquered finish.
