Board-to-Board Color Variation
Board-to-Board Color Variation

Wood is a natural material that features changes in color and tone. The board-to-board color variation is more pronounced in some species, less in others. If you like the look of contrasting light and dark tones, select a species that offers most color variation. If you prefer consistent color from board to board, choose the least color variation.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holds up over Time I installed Kempas wood flooring in my condo 10 years ago and have been pleased with the results. Even after 10 years people are always complementing me on my floors. The color and finish has held up over time. As with any wood flooring over time it has some dings and scratches but over all still looking good. December 1, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful, but not very durable! We had this flooring installed in our new kitchen in the spring, and it was gorgeous initially. The variation in color is amazing, and such a nice touch with our cherry cabinets and light granite. I immediately made a "no shoes in the house" rule to protect the wood and cut down on dirt. The flooring is already horribly dinged and scratched!! I would have expected better durability and would not recommend this flooring to anyone! September 15, 2013
