Narrow Engineered Oak boards installation in SW6 Fulham
The natural look of the oak in narrow and long boards creates a charming feel of being home. It is hard to tell exactly what are the particularities that turn these kind of wooden floors in warm welcoming areas.
Beside our normal task of delivering a crafted floor we had the additional request of reducing the impact noise generated by the floor in contact with foot fall or dropping objects.
Once we cleared the working surface of furniture and of the existing carpet and laminate we could properly asses the timber sub-floor. The loose portions were safely secured avoiding pipes and cables and the weaker ones strengthened. As we achieved a sound sub-floor the impact sound reduction membrane could be fitted. We recommended to types of membrane to our client, one which allowed the floor to be glued down and another which would've acted like an underlay. We were glad that the first option was chosen for quality reasons despite it's higher cost compared to the second. This of course helped us to produce a solid wooden floor as well as stable, adding strength to the timber sub-floor also.
The alignment and symmetry were considered to achieve the best look possible for the entire floor. A seamless frame was built into the floor around the fire place to underline its effect and to make it an integrating part of the overall design.
Two steps were also classically cladded to extend the length of the floor thus making the space look larger and consistent as well.
We installed the floor continuously throughout the hallway, living room and kitchen. This made the home look more spacious and more welcoming.
We were delighted with our results especially when we brought back the furniture which made everything to look like it was there for many years already.
