Rich dark tones and enhanced natural grain produced by fuming creates luxurious colors. The depth of character offers a beautiful contrast and strong foundation for almost any design. To keep it simple, fumed hardwood is another way of adding special design elements to your hardwood surfaces.
What to Expect When Fuming Hardwood
Fuming is a natural process for creating various shades and tones in hardwood, resulting in slight to extreme variations from light to dark. The fuming application reacts with the tannins, bringing out the grain and darkening the wood. No two pieces of wood are the same, therefore it is impossible to have two treated planks look exactly identical.
Most people find this style to be very sophisticated, but wide variations of color are not for everyone. At WEST | WOOD, we recommend an installation layout that enhances the variation in color design.
