IT STARTS WITH A
Color-Based Design Decision.
Budget-Based Product Slection.
Design projects begin with a color swatch, design inspiration, and collaboration. APEX’s in-house color expert can calibrate a customized formula for any given shade or color, whether for our Artisan Collection or a site-finished application. Our proprietary wood staining and finishing techniques allow APEX to have unsurpassed custom capabilities to accommodate any style.
For Apex Lab, we source the best products from premier partners around the world. We aim to provide our clients with superior wood flooring options and limitless customization. When identifying the right source for unparalleled wood flooring, there is no better partner than Allegheny Mountain Hardwood Flooring. The Apex + Allegheny relationship was forged decades ago and remains the strong backdrop that allows us to specialize in the complete customization of our clients’ flooring through Apex LAB.
The Apex Lab custom flooring process begins with the designer sharing an inspirational image or physical material piece that captures the color tone or idea they wish to convey. This collaborative process allows Apex Lab to understand the designer's vision and use it to create a unique and customized flooring solution that perfectly fits their needs. With this initial phase, Apex Lab sets the foundation for creating a beautiful and functional flooring solution that will elevate any space.
During the design phase of the Apex Lab custom flooring process, our color experts use unique methods to hone in on the designer's vision. We pull various inspirations and create color iterations around the designer's idea, considering different shades, tones, and textures to achieve the desired aesthetic. Our team has a wealth of experience and knowledge in color theory and design, allowing us to create customized solutions that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. We work closely with the designer to understand their vision and use our expertise to refine and enhance it.
Once a solid design has been achieved in the Apex Lab custom flooring process, we move into the sampling and feedback phase. During this phase, we produce lighter and darker options to show a range of color possibilities and provide the designer with plenty of choices to work with. After creating the samples, we bring them to the designer for feedback. This collaborative approach allows us to refine our ideas and make adjustments based on the designer's input. We believe that the feedback phase is critical to ensuring that the final product perfectly fits the designer's vision.
In the last phase of the LAB process, we take the feedback gathered and finalize the design. This may involve tweaking colors or textures, refining patterns, or adjusting materials to ensure the final product is precisely what the designer envisioned. Our team of skilled artisans then produces the final concept using the highest quality materials and techniques. The result is a flooring solution that is truly one-of-a-kind and perfectly tailored to the needs of the space. The final product is a testament to our commitment to quality and collaboration, and we are proud to deliver solutions that exceed our client's expectations.
