Register for Bona wood floor talks at Clerkenwell!

04/05/18


Book your place below to hear wood floor expert, Alec Stacey, talk about renovating wood floors and the use of lacquers, oils and colours to achieve contemporary looks – this showroom talk will be given twice each day at Clerkenwell Design Week.

'Inspiration through renovation - how to achieve contemporary trends on existing wood floors' will be delivered by Alec Stacey, Bona’s Technical Manager - and renowned wood floor expert. Alec will explain how to achieve the perfect balance between aesthetics and surface performance, on domestic or commercial wood floor surfaces, through the correct specification of finish (oils, wax, lacquers and colours), and considering the available opportunities for maintenance.

The talks last around 45 minutes with time for questions afterwards. Reserve your place at your preferred time using the drop down menu and form here.  (https://www.bona.com/en-GB/Professional/Support/Events/Clerkenwell-Design-Week/)

Wood floors – why replace when you can renovate with style!

Alec will also be introducing Bona Inspiration, a range of 17 customised floor styles ranging from natural bright to liquorice black that will help you and your clients avoid the limitations of new, pre-finished wood floors.  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 (or new, unfinished) wood floors. Bona can help you find them a new floor style that’s just right.

The 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.”

Each of the Inspiration styles can be achieved by using a combination of Bona’s sanding and brushing methods, varnishes, oils and paints. 

Timbered Flooring Co

Bona will be launching Inspiration at Clerkenwell Design Week in collaboration with the Timbered Flooring Co – wood flooring specialists who supply, install and renovate wood floors – and who are a member of Bona’s Certified Contractor network.  All Bona Certified Contractors have been trained how to create the 17 Inspiration looks.
