Reddish Iron Bark Lightened by Bleaching and Lime - Mt Eliza


Reddish Iron Bark is a popular timber for its rich reddish-brown colour and durability. However, sometimes the color can be too dark, especially if the space has low floor-to-ceiling height. Recently, we had the opportunity to lighten up a Reddish Iron Bark flooring for a client whose space had low ceilings. Here's how we did it:

Whether you have Reddish Iron Bark flooring or another type of timber that needs lightening up, we're here to help. Our team of experts has the knowledge and expertise to bring out the best in your flooring.

To ensure that the client was happy with the end result, we made several samples for them to choose from.


Our samples included three different options - just bleached, bleached and lightly limed, and bleached and strongly limed. Each option had its own unique look and feel, allowing the client to choose the one that best suited their needs.


After careful consideration, the client chose the strongest option - bleached and strongly limed. This option made the space as light as possible, giving it a bright and airy feel. It was the perfect choice for the client's space and we were delighted to have helped them achieve their desired result.


Contrary to popular belief, the myth that lime makes timber look cloudy is not true. As you can see from the images of the grain of the timber, the lime wash did not diminish the natural beauty of the wood. Instead, it brought out the natural grain and texture of the timber, giving it a unique and elegant look.



The end result was stunning - the Reddish Iron Bark flooring looked like a completely different timber. It was lighter, brighter, and made the space feel wider, despite the low ceiling. Our client was thrilled with the transformation, and we were delighted to have helped them achieve their dream flooring.
