We want to share with you some of our beautiful projects. Although they were demanding, some more than others, we always have a huge smile and a happy face when seeing the final result. If you see something that you like, a design feature, a particular wood or if you have a technical question please leave a comment and we'll respond in a short time.
Did you know that you can achieve the look of a brushed wooden floor, without actually brushing the surface of the wood? This is exactly what we did for a project in a Victorian home in Shepherd’s Bush, London. The client was delighted with the end result, especially as our methods make the floor so easy to maintain.
For this project, in a lovely Victorian terraced home in London, we replaced the old carpets with a beautiful unsealed chevron parquet engineered wooden floor, which was fitted with a single row border. The wood was then sealed with a dark ebony oil. This was a tricky project, as is often the case in older properties, the walls were uneven which had an impact on the symmetry of the chevron design.
For our latest project we removed a damaged jatoba wooden floor from a house in Wimbledon, replacing it with a lighter pre-oiled oak floor. The new flooring was fitted in two reception rooms, three flights of curving stairs and the landings.
Fitting a new parquet wooden floor is rewarding because it can completely transform the look and feel of a room.This was particularly true for this project, which incorporated curved borders around the engineered parquet floor, designed to mirror and enhance the rounded features in a 1930’s house in Mitcham.
It’s natural to want to personalise a newly purchased home to reflect your own style and way of living. This was certainly the case for one of our recent projects...
You can never have too much of a good thing. That’s what the homeowners of a converted Victorian property thought when it came to their new parquet wood floor. Initially we fitted the parquet, with a subtle grey oil finish, in the living room.
This project in a Victorian flat conversion took an interesting mix and match approach, combining oak hardwood flooring with oak chevron parquet. As the same species of engineered wood was used in the same white finish, the two different floors work beautifully together. Each floor defines its own space, giving the rooms their own identity and introducing plenty of pattern along the way.
In the case of wood flooring, preparation is key. If your subfloor isn’t strong and level, then a new wooden floor won’t ever look or perform as well as it should. For this project in a 1970’s house, we ripped out the old laminate floor to find huge holes in the subfloor.
We knew exactly what to suggest for this brief, a bespoke end grain block wooden floor. This spectacular floor isn’t something you see very often nowadays, but before the introduction of concrete, it was commonly used in factories, as it’s incredibly strong and hardwearing.
