To preserve the original white color we recommend to treat the wood with a soft white wash. This will reduce the aging of the wood by turning yellow. Ivory beech can be treated with a top coat after the white wash, so it will be protect against dirt and water.
Ivory beech is not a wood that you will stain easy, a white wash or a soft grey is what one can add to this species.

More facts about Ivory Beech Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Beech wood is and has been one of the most popular woods used for flooring in Europe. It is more resistant against abrasion than Oak wood for example. That’s why it is often used as factory flooring and in highly frequented areas.
It is native in Europe, North America and Asia. Beech trees can become over 300 years of age and 30-35 meters in height.
Beech wood is a challenge for many wooden flooring producers to process, because Beech wood likes to “move & shrink” more than other hardwoods in its drying process. With our Ivory Beech Engineered Hardwood Flooring that issue is being eliminated because the Beech wood slice is glued to high quality multi-layered plywood.
Even though Beech wood is very hard, it is easy to cut, sand or polish.
Beech wood will experience an average change in the color tone over time. Heat will speed that process up, that’s why we don’t recommend Beech wood flooring if you plan to install floor heating. Actually, steam can be used to manipulate the natural color tone of Beech wood, and it can flip to a red color tone depending on steaming time and temperature.
Beech wood is also used to give many smoked foods their characteristic taste like ham, sausages, and cheeses.
