I'm not sure what was traditionally used to finish the timber floors on the verandahs (which in some cases became sleepouts) but I've seen both painted and clear finished versions.
Unfortunately the front verandah on our house is in a sorry state, and I assume most of it will need to be replaced, however I don't want a "new" looking deck in it's place.
|As you can see in this photo, our verandah floor has been painted green|
Our architect has recommended two timber finish options:
1) semi-transparent stain in charcoal, or
2) paint finish - colour TBC
I've seen Owen and Vokes use this colour on a couple of jobs now, and I know some of you will absolutely love it:
|O+V - Holland Park Sleepouts|
|O+V - West End House|
This particular shade of green is a favourite of mine, and I'm thinking of using it on our house. I wonder how well it will wear compared to a stain finish?
