Beautiful aged oak parquet with wooden flooring on stairs

Wood flooring: all was carefully planned ahead: moving and protecting the furniture to allow us to work safely; the special sub-floor preparation for parquet; the steps preparation for stairs cladding; the alignment for parquet; and the actual installation.

Right from the beginning we knew that this project will demand us skills, patience and care. All was carefully planned ahead: moving and protecting the furniture to allow us to work safely; the special sub-floor preparation for parquet; the steps preparation for stairs cladding; the alignment for parquet; and the actual installation.

As agreed with the client we fitted the engineered herringbone parquet continuously all throughout the ground floor. Thus we achieved an overwhelming surface of parquet. And the large space became even larger.
For the fireplace our recommendation was a seamless frame built into the parquet floor. We were glad that this option was chosen as the fireplace became a focal point and actually enriched the beauty of this aged parquet.

The stairs were strengthened from above as well from under to eliminate all the present and potential squeaks.
The oak engineered boards for risers and treads were bespoke finished in situ with Osmo Polyx Oil. We selected wide boards of 240mm to cover the entire width of the tread. This also allowed us to use minimal, reduced sized, nosing trims thus emphasising the oak boards.
Each step was individually crafted according to the stair structure to achieve a uniform and symmetrical look.
The upstairs landing was beautifully connected with the stairs by installing wide boards as well with the same finish.

On the ground floor we had to replace the skirting compared to the landing where the existing skirting was undercut.

We especially crafted a coffee table from the same materials as the parquet floor and stairs. After this the whole project took a new meaning. Let us know if you like this. We were delighted!

We could deliver this beautiful result with the exceptional quality wood provided by Natural Wood Floor Co. This was also our recommendation.
