What is Lime washing?
Lime washing is an incredible alternative to staining and finishing, and it allows you to change the look of your flooring for less money.
Lime washed floors offer a modern and clean look, adding brightness to your spaces therefore making them look bigger and more elegant.
Liming is essentially a white wash; this means that the process will give your floors a whiter look, but you’ll still be able to enjoy all the characteristics that make your timber floor so attractive and pleasing to the eye.
This kind of process doesn’t provide a consistent color tone because timber is not consistent itself, but that’s also what adds to the charm of liming and it’s one of the reasons people like it so much.
How does Lime Washing work?
Lime washing is possible thanks to the diluted paint solution, which gives homeowners a choice when it comes to colour schemes.
This means that you’ll be able to choose from a variety of whites and creams. In fact, we will help you choose the right colour for your flooring and we will adapt the colour to whatever species of softwood or hardwood your floors are sporting.
Lime washing your floors will make them brighter and it will provide that characteristic weathered look you’re looking for.

How Lime washing on wood floor is done?
Similar to floor staining, lime washing can be done by either tinting or performing a direct wood wash.
Tinting is an inexpensive option but it’s not very effective.
This process consists of mixing the lime solution with floor varnish and applying the solution to the floor. This means that the whitening effect is a coat, so the colour will peel and scratch over time.
Direct wood wash, on the other hand, is a lot more effective!
This process consists in lying the timber by sanding it with fine finishing grit and lye until we achieve the colour you desire. This is not a simple process, so you should definitely trust professionals!
