Our very popular Ávila flooring features a clean look with minimal colour variation, in our select character Hickory with subtle hand texturing.
Handmade Hickory floors in light, neutral hues
Ávila has light, neutral hues that complement both modern and traditional designs and which impart a lightness and openness to any space.
Ávila starts off with our select character grade of Hickory, which is graded to have a cleaner look and less colour variation. After texturing it is then put through a multi-step colour treatment process which involves bleaching and staining in order to achieve its unique, light colour.
