10mm Herringbone Wood Block

10mm Herringbone Wood Block


Manufactured in Germany and hand-finished with hardwax oil, a 10mm solid oak wood block was used for the hall. Arno Driftwood was used in the living area. Made from railway sleepers and hand-finished with hardwax oil.

The Installation

With a 10mm floor such as this, the sub-floor must be 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 from the herringbone, seamlessly fitting the wood block into a straight plank.

The Finish – Herringbone

First, the wood block was smoked to give a deep warm base. Then, a hardwax oil with white pigment was used to finish the product with a nice light/smokey look. Once dried, the oil gave the floor a durable and practical finish.

The Finish – Driftwood

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, the perfect choice for any rustic style room. This floor has been finished with a grey hardwax oil.

The Final Product

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.
