We don't receive to often such a particular request like we had for this project: to stain the main floor in one colour, the tramline in a distinct clear finish, and the border in the same colour as the main floor but in a distinct darker tone, having only oak as wood species.
The uniqueness of a walnut floor cannot be matched by any other wood species. A not such a large surface but with the help of the wonderful winding grains and our special attention to details we managed to obtain a beautiful wooden floor.
For this project we were in for a not such a pleasant surprise. As usual when having furniture we started by moving it in a safe side. The old laminate was removed as well as the old parquet which was hidden under the laminate.
Among the many floor covering types available nowadays wooden floors stand out through their unmatched beauty, naturalness and warmth. Yet, when it comes to longevity, many consider hardwood floors way behind other floor coverings like porcelain tiles.
Most of the times smaller projects are more demanding than the larger ones especially when multiple stages are involved. This project made no exception.
Most of the materials which surround us will change dimensions in accordance with the ambient temperature variation. Some more, some less.
