Treat wood the natural way

If you have wood inside or outside your home that you’d like to treat in in environmentally-friendly way, Auro is the perfect choice.  The manufacturing process of their paints and stains makes them CO2-neutral, and they’re made from natural ingredients. Although Auro made their name with interior paints, they now have an extensive range of wood treatments for furniture, floors and decking. Non-toxic and (nearly all) solvent-free, Auro’s wood products are both safe and stylish.

Stain wooden floors

If your home has wooden floors, you may well be keen to show off their natural charm, rather than covering them with carpet or harsh varnishes. Auro have a huge range of options when it comes to treating or colouring wooden floors, all designed to draw out their individual character. Depending on the level of coverage you’re after, you can opt for a coloured paint or a transparent tint. Auro 127 Aqua Paint is water-thinnable and breathable, and leaves a subtle but smart finish on wooden floorboards. Auro 187 Wood Wax both protects the surface and leaves a slight shine and tint.

Auro 101/402 Lye Paint is another option to brighten and preserve light-coloured wooden floors. It gives a see-through white tint, which can be layered as much as you wish.

Auro also has a selection of solvent-free oils and waxes to intensify natural wood shades and protect your floor. All of these are easy to apply and will keep your floor looking good for ages!

Stain furniture

Outdoor furniture has a hard life! Constantly exposed to the elements, it can suffer from weathering and fading. To make the most of your furniture, and make sure it lasts as long as possible, you should cover it with varnish or oil.

Auro have a huge range of eco varnishes, hard and soft wax in a huge selection of colours, as well as fully transparent. They won’t give off chemical fumes and they’ll keep your furniture looking great for years to come.

Stain decking

Auro’s wood stains are available for adding a splash of colour to your decking or external cladding. 160 Woodstain is available in 22 different colours which can also be mixed together for even bigger choice. These stains are a subtle and long-lasting alternative to standard paints, without the nasty chemicals. It protects woodwork as well as transforming it, providing protection against water, dirt and UV rays.

Another option if you want more coverage is Auro’s gloss paint, which can be used on wood and metal both outdoors and outdoors. Solvent-free and resistant to cracking, the results are preserved for 3-5 years.
