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 wooden floor requires great skill, which is learnt over time. Some homeowners let their builder fit their new floor as part of a renovation project but, although they may have some of the skills required, it’s the details that can elevate a floor and make all the difference.
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...
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 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.
Working on older properties can be a challenge but the end results are always spectacular. This project, in a converted warehouse in Bermondsey, was no exception. We replaced a dated laminate floor with a new dark engineered wood, which completely refreshed and enhanced the industrial style interior.
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.
