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.
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.
If you live in a flat and want a wooden floor, the chances are you’ll need to install some sort of soundproofing. For the majority of customers, this will simply involve fitting an Impact Sound Reduction Membrane.
One of the most important stage in a wooden floor installation project is the subfloor preparation. Most often this stage is below the duration and complexity of the floor fitting itself but for this project is was the reverse.
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.
