Whitewash Timber Floor Brisbane
To begin with, Bona White is a water based primer used as a system with Bona water based top coats. It does, in fact give that Whitewash timber floor look to lighter coloured Pine timbers. In the event that a client wants a natural untreated look, one coat is enough. In like manner, two or more coats will increase the intensity. Of course this would depend on the desired outcome.

As shown above, the floor in the video is Cypress Pine parquetry. After two Bona White primer coats, we then applied two top coats of Bona Traffic. In this case, it gave the floor a semi-gloss type appearance.
Whitewash look and Low Maintenance
Some clients in the past have asked if there is any way to lighten their floors. This Bona White coating system is definitely the Whitewash timber floor solution. It definitely has a modern look to it although I feel the lower sheen finishes compliment this whitewash look. The combination of the lighter colour with a low sheen finish will really hide fine surface dust. In other words a trendy look and low maintenance floor.
This parquetry floor started out with this old water-based clear finish applied to it. It had some general wear and tear, and they had also just removed an old fireplace which needed to be sanded down flat and blended in. The clients were also after a different look this time around.
They decided on a white-wash effect, to really lighten up the room, and contrast against their dark furniture. Bona White is a water-based primer used as a system combined with clear, Bona top coats. On this floor I applied two coats of the white primer followed by two coats of Bona Traffic. As you can see, it has really lightened up this room and it was exactly the look this customer was after.
