Grades

We offer 3 different grades, which represent as many ways to make you satisfied with your room. You like modern style? Our Premium grade will dress up your house with its brightness and elegance. If you prefer a flooring with shades, our Distinct grade is made for you. Finally, for pure and simple decor lovers, our Authentic grade shows all the richness of wood, in its purest expression.
