Cherry wood can be described in a single word: magnificent! Its rich red-brown colour deepens with age. Small, dark resin marks add to its appeal. It has an exceptionally bright appearance, and its finish is silky to the touch. 

Like most dark-coloured species, cherry wood is much darker than the sapwood, which is less dark. As a result, cherry wood boards often have very different shades on both sides. One side of the cherry wood may show a dark and even colour; the side facing the bark of the tree will present a colour ranging from dark tan to creamy pink. This wide variety of colours poses quite a challenge, since the alternation of the annual growth rings is the basis of the board assemblies. 

There are several ways to colour the cherry wood. However, the results often leave something to be desired for the same reasons stated in the case of untreated boards. UV rays will soon highlight the areas that showed marked differences in colour before a stain was applied to them. 


L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal is renowned for repairing and sanding your cherry wood floors, whether it’s an oiled floor, a stained floor, or a varnished floor. We also carry out the dust-free sanding of your cherry wood steps and railings. We treat your cherry wood floor with care, and we apply the eco-friendly finish of your choice, using only superior-quality products: non-toxic stains for floors; odour-free, eco-friendly varnishes; and natural oils and essences for cherry wood floors. 


Cherry floor varnishing 

Cherry wood is a noble and durable material, but if you don’t varnish it, it will deteriorate. Water damage darkens the wood and causes irreversible effects, even after sanding the cherry wood. 

Applying a vitrifying coating to your cherry wood floor will protect it for many years. It will give it a clean look that will make it easier to care for while providing a preventive effect. 

It’s therefore important to cover it with an appropriate varnish! After the dust-free sanding of your cherry wood flooring, L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal will begin the varnishing work carried out by a team of master sanders specializing in finishing your wood floors. 

We know that the varnishing of your cherry floor determines the final result of your project. That’s why our dust-free sanding company will offer you the best finish for your cherry wood floors. You’ll benefit from our experience, and you’ll be advised on and guided through our wide range of products: high-quality, eco-friendly, non-toxic water-based varnishes. 


L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal, which specializes in cherry floor sanding, offers you hybrid varnishes for cherry wood floors in a separate category. They’re usually distinguished from water-based – or latex – varnishes in two different ways: their colour is slightly amber, and they contain a water-soluble oil. This earns them their name of modified, water-soluble oil-based varnishes. The resin in the hybrid varnish is chemically modified and contains a portion of oil in its molecular composition. However, don’t worry, since the oil contained in this product isn’t toxic. From an environmental perspective, hybrid varnishes are similar to water-based vitrifying coatings. They’re generally prized by people who want to give a touch of amber colour to their cherry wood floor. They’re somewhat reminiscent of the appearance of oil-based varnishes, but with a lighter shade and without the downsides associated with the smell.
