A varnished Ash floor is spectacular and hard wearing. The wild grain patterns with a clear contrast between sapwood and hardwood will fade over time but the planks will always remain lively. An Ash floor can tell a story – if you have the time to listen.
Fraxinus excelsior is the Latin name for Ash, and there are only a few species throughout the world.
Ash is hard and tough with a lively grain pattern.This durable wood is as hard as Oak. The heartwood is brown, while the sapwood is creamy white in unfinished condition. The tone of the heart and sapwood will meet over time in a light brown scale.
