A rather tight space became a warm welcoming and spacious home due to the beautiful engineered wooden floor installed into the living room, bedroom, kitchen area and entrance hallway. The natural finish of these long boards matched perfectly with the historic architectural style actually emphasizing it.

On a compact surface the details will make a huge difference. For example, just avoid using a threshold by seamlessly joining the wooden floor with tiles and you create a welcoming surface. We used this feature here.

Being a second floor flat we were require to deliver a solution for impact sound reduction without adding resilience to the new engineered oak floor. We went for a specialized approach, not so commonly used. A dedicated membrane for such requirements was bonded to the sub-floor therefore we obtained a solid surface with impact sound reduction capabilities. Since the sub-floor was prepared we proceeded with the wooden floor fitting by gluing it down. The end result was what we intended: a solid floor with sound insulation.

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

Wooden boards: Engineered Oak Grey White, Pre-Oiled OLNO/180
Dimensions: Width 180mm, Thickness 20mm, Various Length up to 2800mm.
