These ethereal flooring products create a strong atmosphere through a variety of coloration techniques. Combinations of these techniques, including torching, wire brushing, planing, hand-scraping and multilayered staining, create subtle variations in wood flooring. Exotic woods and natural stone are naturally endowed with an ambience. Vinyl and porcelain flooring options range from watercolor-like tableaus to simulations of highly textured materials. Porcelain tiles are digitally printed to resemble Belgian bluestone, distressed to resemble tumbled limestone or colored to look like oxidized steel.
