With this particular project we were asked to supply and fit a range of different floor coverings to the majority of the house. This house in Guildford, Surrey was subjected to a full refurbishment and extension and we had to work closely with the main contractors on site to meet the tight deadlines that were set.
The entrance hall, study, cloakroom and toilet were fitted using a Solid Oak Herringbone wood block flooring with a two-block border. Our Client specified the finished stain and chose to finish the wood with a Clear Ultra mat lacquer. The Herringbone laying pattern created that beautiful traditional parquet floor design.
Great care and communication needed to take place with regards to the under-floor heating in this area. Selecting the correct product with the right grain is key plus controlling the temperature of the under-floor heating with very small increments of a degree a day was essential. The natural wood needs to be slowly subjected to the change in temperature; too much to soon could cause major problems with the floor. We fitted the playroom in Karndean Opus Primo WP412 wood, a very practical and hardwearing choice for a room that will be used for different type of activities.
The top floor games room and study were fitted using Karndean Art Select Oak Royale RL02 Summer Oak. This luxurious Oak wood plank blended beautifully with the large open space on the top floor of the house. This luxury vinyl tile perfectly suited its surroundings, with its hard wearing and load bearing properties it was ideal for a games room with a Pool table and various heavy equipment situated on top.
The bathrooms and en suites were laid in Karndean Knight Tile ST12 Bath Stone, DS10 Grout stripping. The colour and size of tile complimented the adjoining carpet and the shape of the rooms. One en suite was laid with Amtico Signature Mica Mix Earth 12″ x 18″ size tile. This particular tile created a modern and stylish floor.
The remaining downstairs rooms and bedrooms were fitted with a luxurious wool carpet from Cormar. We recommended the Home Counties Heathers 50oz colour Millstone, which was later installed by our team. The combination of luxury New Zealand and British Wool creates a strong and resilient carpet, which adds underfoot comfort and warmth to any home.
To conclude our work at the property, the main staircase was created into a runner. The carpet was finished on the edges with a flat weave cotton tape, which provided a very personal and unique finish to the stairs.
