What can I do to address the reddish color of my Jarrah timber?
One effective solution is to bleach it. Similar to the process of bleaching hair at a salon, we use chemical compounds that remove the reddish tannin from Jarrah, resulting in a light golden timber. This provides a neutral base that allows us to apply a wash for achieving a specific, modern color suitable for your property.
Take a look at the transformation:

To achieve a cool and contemporary interior, we can apply a gray wash and finish on top, complementing a new black kitchen installation.
By understanding the potential of bleaching and its purpose, we aim to instill confidence in homeowners who have Jarrah timber but are unsure how to enhance its appearance.
Note: Without bleaching, applying a wash or stain may result in the reddish tone seeping into the final color. For instance, using a white lime wash without bleaching can lead to a pinkish hue.
