Color differences in wooden floors

Color differences

A risc that is lurking invariably with a wooden floor: color differences. These differences may occur. And this is where the big advantage of wood, which can be treated endlessly, be a disadvantage. De Berg Wooden Floors would love to see how we can limit these differences to a minimum for you.

Good service, excellent options and a lovely price including the possible installation! Definitely a recommendation if you are looking for a high quality flooring.

Causes of color difference

Color differences can have different causes; a mixture of treatments, a high intensity of floor usage, sunlight, maintenance oil, maintenance soap or humidity.

Mixture of treatments

A wooden floor can be finished in many different ways, depending on the wanted end result.

  • Smoke
  • Brush
  • Age
  • Oils
  • Lacquer

As a result of the treatment your floor can have a small difference in color compared to the showed colors in the showroom.

High intensity usage of the floor, sunlight and maintenance oil and soap.

A well finished and maintained floor can be used intesively without any issues. However, over time it’s possible that small color differences arrise. This can be a result due to the heavy use, sunlight of the usage of maintenance oil and soap.


Wood lives. Which means that wood stretches and shrinks. When the humidity in a room is not under control for a long period of time it can cause irreparable damage to the floor. You can prevent this with a humidifier. Even in spaces with an airconditioning unit the humidity can be off balance.
