Light-coloured siblings: oak & ash

Light coloured siblings: oak and ash

Oak is by far the most widely used hardwood. This classic timber is characterised by a yellow or brownish colour and beautiful straight grain or flame patterns. Ash—another classic beauty—offers similar wood patterns, but comes in even lighter tones: from white to pale yellow.

Vivid romantics: walnut & merbau

Vivid romantics: walnut and merbau

Wood species like walnut and merbau add a warm touch to your floor. Walnut is brown and typically has a dark, clearly visible straight or curling grain. Its sapwood, however, is pale and whitish, giving your floor a lively appearance. Merbau comes in a palette of orange to dark reddish brown and its uniform structure and natural shine will immediately catch your eye.

Tropical exotics: jatoba & wengé

Tropical exotics: jatoba and wenge

In order to create floors with a unique exotic appearance, Quick-Step uses several species of tropical timber. Jatoba, for instance, comes straight from Brazil and offers a lush colour palette of reddish pink and brown. It sometimes has a black straight grain, adding a dramatic effect to your floor. Wengé, on the other hand, is even darker in colour. This heavy and hard wood type has a distinctive partridge wing figure.
