We are lucky in our trade that we install the finishing touches. No matter how much you spend on fixtures & fittings, if you make the wrong choice with your floor it can change the whole look of a room.
Luckily this is not the case with this beautiful kitchen. We worked alongside Hove Bathroom & Kitchen Centre on this project. HBKC have a very similar ethos to us at Ocean Flooring. Keeping the company relatively small allows them to deal personally with each customer. As they say “Expert, individual and personal service is the cornerstone of their business”.
James at HBKC contacted us to discuss flooring options. As you can see from the photos, the kitchen is very sleek and a minimalist design. This allowed us to suggest a more creative design for the flooring.
We’ve been promoting parquet flooring for a number of years now and demand has really started to increase. This means that there is now far more choice available from a number of suppliers. We knew we wanted our installation of the floor to replicate the high quality work of the kitchen installation. As we said at the beginning, the floor is a finishing touch and we wanted to be able to stand back and think “WOW”.
For this reason Phil recommended using Havwood’s Herringbone Engineered Oak plank. The kitchen has a large window on one side so the light really picks up the different colours in the plank which is enhanced by the herringbone design.
We could not be happier with how this installation went, our fitter Jack did a fantastic job and at the end we did all stand back and think “Wow”.
