Tiny samples don’t work…

There we said it. And yet flooring companies continue to post them out. At our site visits, we see sample piles and they’re indistinguishable from one another! Take our advice you can’t choose a floor like this.

Wood is a natural product, so when oils are applied, how they take to the wood is random. This means the final colour will vary, sometimes by 5%, if the wood has no knots and the oils are strong, sometimes by 15%, if the floor is rustic.

Also, different floors have different knot filling strategies. Some are machine-filled in a filler that matches the floor. Some are hand-filled in a contrasting fill, normally black. Cheaper floors will have poorly filled knots, in random colour (the manufacturer uses the same filler for all their floors…).

At Kite, we post out large samples for some of our ranges, but we don’t recommend you choose your floor based solely on these. This is why we supplement our product pages with as many photos and videos as possible.

If possible, especially for our patterned and premium floors, we recommend you view our large sample boards. You can either do this through a site visit or at our Shoreditch showroom.
