Natural Beauty Means Natural Variations The patterns and color variations created in a living tree are like all of nature—never repeated. Naturally occurring wood characteristics such as mineral streaks, knots, and variations in grain and color, are not considered defects. Also, all hardwood flooring will undergo color changes over time and with exposure to light. As a result of these natural characteristics, and the limitations of printing and color representation on electronic devices, your newly installed Somerset floor will vary from any samples or pictures shown.

We often recommend to a customer that they purchase a full carton of flooring, take it home, and look at it as a large sample in their environment. It’s a small step to take to insure that you will be completely satisfied with your investment.

The Color of Your Floor is Subject to Change, Here’s Why:

Just as your own skin darkens and becomes “tan" with exposure to sunlight and Ultraviolet light, all wood, especially many exotic species, will undergo natural color changes due to the effects of exposure to sunlight and/or Ultraviolet light and age. Expect your new floor color to deepen and become richer over time. Area rugs, furniture, and any other item on the floor that blocks light should be moved from time to time.
