Why does my sample look slightly different from the images on the website?
We are careful to make sure our images are accurate in all printed literature and on our website, but cannot always create a perfect representation of our products. For this reason we strongly recommend that you look at a sample of any product you are considering before placing your order. All of our products are inspired by things we have seen in the natural world and just like variation in colour and detail is part of the beauty of nature, is also a feature of some of our designs. This means that with some of our products you will see natural variation when your floor is installed. If in doubt, ask your retailer to show you a larger sample of the product.
Should I buy Designflooring over the internet?
We definitely recommend speaking to one of our flooring specialists rather than buying our flooring over the internet.
