Our bathroom floor is half reclaimed Vietnamese Kauri and half original NZ Kauri. To minimise the difference in colour, we had the floor whitewashed - it was hard to get the tradesman to understand the effect I was after, it seems whitewashing isn't common here in NZ. The rest of the house is a blend of original and reclaimed Kauri boards, which we waxed ourselves. Lovely effect but it's very soft and dents very easily!

Help. I’ve used Fishers floor wax for years but can’t get it any more. Other products aren’t as good. Any suggestions?
