Fitting Hardwood Floors

The fit and finish of a floor defines the craftsmanship that goes into it. We take great care with the subfloor because a perfectly firm, flat, floor depends on it. We fit floors exactly to the space allocated, wall-to-wall with a skirting to cover the expansion gap. We have really neat ways to get round radiator pipes, door jamb casings, step nosings and stairs as well as fiddly corners and curves. Every floor has its unique challenge and we always find a way that is pleasing to the eye.

Here are some of the ways we can fit a floor to perfection:

Fitting the floor under the door jamb to avoid an unsightly gap

Stair nosings give character to steps and stairs

Picture frames have the edge on door mat wells and fire places

Getting round a pipe can create an ugly mess. We do it properly

Skirting looks good but, importantly, hides the expansion gap between the floor and the wall

Scotia fits against the skirting when the skirting cannot be removed

A threshold separates the floors in different rooms or if there is a difference of floor levels

Tramlines make a floor look really special

The staircase, a distinctive feature that greets you on entering the house.Settling down in Fulham Not unexpectedly, residential house prices in the London boroughs are taking a breather; sales are overall about 0.2 % down on a year ago.

Putney – Private House
At rest. A harmony of colours in the drawing room To carpet or not to carpet? That is the question.

Sales of carpets fell by almost 20% across […]
Fulham – Private House
Fulham’s Dramatic Transformation Fulham’s transition from an area of industry to one of London’s most sought-after residential communities was dramatic. Since the late 19thcentury, the borough was host to such names as De Havilland, Rolls Royce, Kodak and Shell-Mex; its many industries included breweries, distilleries, potteries and hundreds of small manufacturing companies.

Percy & Founders – Restaurant
Enter Percy & Founders, an up-market restaurant in Fitzrovia, London, and one is suffused in the warmth of Oak. It’s everywhere! The ceilings, floors, pillars and much of the furniture have the same fawn-coloured timber occasionally relieved by marble and other ceramics. Whilst the ceiling are parallels of plank, the floors contrast with over-sized parquet. […]
Jaeger LeCoultre – Bond St Showroom
The Jaeger-LeCoultre’s name is synonymous with precision. Hundreds of chronograph movements have, in their own way, made history since the company was awarded a gold medal at London’s Great Exhibition in 1851.
