10mm Solid Oak Woodblock is the flooring we used on the hall. Manufactured in Germany and hand finished with Hardwax Oil. Arno Driftwood was used in the living area. Made from railway sleepers and hand finished with Hardwax Oil.
With a 10mm floor such as this, it is very important that the sub-floor is even. Mulveys' fitters started by making the existing floor level to provide a good base. The flooring was then fit in a herringbone pattern with a 2 piece border to transition to the plank floor. The driftwood continued on from the herringbone seamlessly fitted in a straight plank.
First, the woodblock is smoked to give a deep warm base, then a hard-wax oil with a white pigment has been used to finish the product with a nice light/smokey look. Once dried the oiled finish is a durable and practical wood flooring finish.
Crafted from railway sleepers this floor provides a truly rustic feel bringing your home closer to nature than ever before. The Driftwood is very coarse to the touch and contains lots of open knots and cracks, beautiful for any rustic style room. This floor has been finished with a grey hard wax oil.
When the owner of the home approached Mulveys for this project we knew instantly that they had a great eye for colour, this can be seen in the interior photos. We worked tirelessly with European mills to construct not only the boards but the exact finish the client had in mind for their home. Mulveys' fitters excel at projects such as these and liaise closely with the homeowner to ensure the highest level of quality. Needless to say, both parties were delighted with the outcome of the flooring.
