Bona Inspiration – why replace wood floors when you can renovate with style!

Discover Bona Inspiration, a new wood floor styling system developed by Swedish wood floor experts, Bona. Each of the 17 Inspiration looks is designed to make a beloved wood floor explode with beauty and character. The customised looks range from Nordic whites, through natural brights to liquorice black. A Bona certified contractor will handle the dust-free sanding and renovation work, and use Bona’s latest surface brushing techniques, colours, oils and lacquers to complete the transformation. You can retain your existing parquet blocks or boards but change the look of a room, or your whole home, by giving them a completely new look and feel. Any repairs can also be undertaken at the same time. From a sustainability perspective it makes sense too – your existing wood floor has already been manufactured and transported. If you’re fitting new boards into a new space, then turn to Bona Inspiration to avoid the limitations of new, pre-finished wood floors or to finish the bare timber.

The new wood floor styles have been developed in collaboration with the internationally recognised trend analyst, Cay Bond, who has more than 30 years’ experience of trends within fashion, design and interiors. She said, “I think the value of the floor is underestimated. Despite being a major part of our interior environment, floors get very little attention. With a cleverly restored floor, a room and a home can change drastically. Personality and culture can be expressed through the choice of flooring. With a variety of inspirational styles, we want to showcase the possibilities and creative solutions for the right ambience. Nowadays, people apply their personality to their home and interior style. A home showcases your personal identity more than anything else. The floor has an incredibly important role to play in this.”

Patrik Mellnert, Product Manager at Bona, added, “We have developed a concept which can create just the right style and effect on a wood floor using our products and techniques. With the right treatment, you can preserve the soul of the floor while producing a whole new look. With Bona’s extensive product range, and the expertise of one of our Bona Certified Contractors, you can make magic from an existing floor in only a few hours.”

The Bona Inspiration palette encompasses a range of interior design styles in which the wooden floors play an important role. Each style comprises a variety of looks for the floor which can be achieved by using a combination of Bona’s sanding and

brushing methods to enhance the wood grain of the wood, waterborne lacquers, low VOC oils and specially developed floor paints. The five styles, Nordic Shimmer, Garden Atmosphere, Malibu Dreams, Touch of Grace and New Modern, include 17 looks including everything from dark, rustic floors to floors with a pale, lacquered finish.
