TOANO, Va., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Low-gloss hardwood floors are very popular in Europe and now this look is increasingly in demand by designers and homeowners in the United States. Beyond their warm and inviting feel, the low-gloss appearance hides small scratches, dirt and fur, making it friendly for homes with kids and pets. Up until now, achieving a low-gloss matte finish required finishing a floor with oil, which requires constant maintenance.
Bellawood – the premier prefinished hardwood flooring brand – is expanding its line to include prefinished oil-look matte styles. Customers can now get all of the benefits of a Bellawood prefinished floor with the look of an oil-finish in varieties including Red Oak, Brazilian Pecan, Brazilian Cherry, American Walnut and Hickory.
Stacy Maddox, Director of Production Operations, commented: "Our new Bellawood line of oil-look hardwood floors has a special finish that gives them industry-leading durability and scratch resistance consistent with our transferable 100-year warranty. Blending the beautiful and low-maintenance matte finish with the enduring quality of Bellawood is an innovation homeowners will love."
Exacting Standards, Enduring Quality
Bellawood features a proprietary, unique topcoat that boosts scratch, scuff and stain resistance, making it ideal for high-traffic areas, children and pets. The secret is the innovative UV-cured aluminum oxide finish that is applied to each plank via a micro-particle process. When subjected to scratch resistance testing known as the Diamond Stylus Test, Bellawood floors were found to be extremely scratch resistant.
The finish on the premier Bellawood flooring line is so durable that it is also backed by a transferable 100-year warranty offering homeowners and homebuilders an unmatched value that will last for generations to come.
To launch this new line, Lumber Liquidators is offering a 10 percent discount on all new orders of Bellawood Prefinished Hardwood and Ultra-Strand Bamboo products in stock from now through July 22.
