Rubio Monocoat as the ideal partner for your interior and exterior wood

In Belgium we are enjoying the last summer sun and experiencing the first autumn jitters. And if you’re lucky, you can do so in your own garden. And at night, you can get cozy inside. Like the owners of this house do, they love being both outdoors and indoors. The woodwork in the garden and in the interior were treated with Rubio Monocoat oil. Are you curious about the result? We love it!

This private home in Waregem underwent a real transformation: from an old house to a modern one with a sleek look and feel. The aim was to make the best possible use of all the space in the house. In order to create the sleek look, the owners worked with two colour accents: white and black. They wanted a natural touch in their interior to which the colour accents needed to blend in smoothly. So what better material to use for this project than wood? They chose a light colour for the floor, namely Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, colour Smoke 5%. To create a natural contrast, Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, colour Charcoal, was used for the cabinets.

They installed a wooden fence around the entire house, which, thanks to the right colour, shows up very well in the garden. Also outdoors, colour accents can make the garden feel more like an extension of the living room. That is why the wooden planter got the same colour as the fence, with a beautiful result. The owners opted for a pre-treatment with Rubio Monocoat Sunprimer HWP, colour Black and as wood protection they used our Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Wood Protector, colour Black. The combination of these two products results in the intense black colouring.

“The simple application and the extensive colour palette are valuable advantages” - Olivier Ostijn.

The fact that Rubio Monocoat can be the ideal partner for your wood projects is confirmed once again with this project: applicable both indoors and outdoors and available in light and dark shades, just the way you want it!
