Search for "engineered parquet"
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.
There’s something rather special about parquet wood flooring. Radiating elegance and sophistication, it’s a wonderful way to make a statement that will stand the test of time. Historically, parquet was the flooring of choice for aristocrats and royalty, but today it’s far more affordable, practical and very much back in fashion.
If you’re looking for a floor that will bring texture, pattern and a designer look into your home, a block wooden floor is hard to beat. The classic staggered herringbone pattern that’s so popular at the moment is achieved using parquet wood flooring. If you want a more symmetrical, uniform look, Chevron wood flooring is the one to consider.
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.
If you have a wooden floor that’s looking a bit tired and needs renovating, it always pays to use a professional company with plenty of experience. Without the know-how, it’s very easy to do more harm than good.
This project was an absolute joy to work on as it called upon our skills as both floor fitters and restorers. Our work, in a beautiful Arts & Crafts house in Surrey, involved fitting new 240 mm unsealed oak engineered boards along with a new parquet floor. An original oak parquet floor was then restored and renovated to bring it back to its former glory.
Curved border and undercut skirting boards create an elegant new parquet wooden floor in Wimbledon: we were delighted to receive a top review for being “skilful, professional and efficient” when we fitted an Aged Oak Ebony parquet wooden floor in a flat in Wimbledon, South London.
