Heritage Oak Case Study Returns

Our Heritage Oak Flooring was used in Paul & Victoria’s Somerset farmhouse as part of the oak flooring for the upstairs. Recently, the couple decided to continue the mixed width flooring across the entire landing, and have used it as a stair material too. They have invited us back to take a look at their most recent project.

As you enter the home, you are greeted by stone flooring in the hallway providing a utilitarian floor to take off boots and hang up your coat. The stairway leads off from the hallway with our Heritage Oak leading the way up the stairs and across both landings at the top. Being specialists in wide board flooring, we were able to match the width dimensions needed for the flooring treads.

Formally, Paul & Victoria had laid our Heritage Oak flooring across only the left hand turn of the landing, but have since decided to floor the entire upstairs landing in Heritage Oak. Previously a carpet floor, the style was not in keeping with the country farmhouse and it prevented this top corridor landing from ever being a peaceful yet timeless space.

Now, with the rolling undulations of the oak flooring laid across the entire upstairs, there is a continuation throughout the home. The Heritage Oak flooring leads you from room to room, and all the way, compliments the cob walls of the house. The timeless flooring choice echoes the home’s past and breathes life back into its walls giving history back to this loving home.

Paul decided to lay the flooring himself, and also do the carpentry surrounding the stairwell. UK Hardwoods was able to offer advice along the way, and make comments based on photographs of the job that Paul and Victoria sent through prior to choosing the flooring. They used Osmo Polyx Oil in Clear to finish the oak floorboards having previously sanded them.

Our customers are the roots of our business. Repeat custom is one of the most important aspects to us here at the sawmill and provides feedback on on oak flooring we produce. We send out only the highest quality oak wood flooring, with each piece passing through our hands at least eight times before reaching your home. Our uncompromising consistency leads to stories like Paul & Victoria’s, time and time again.
