This modern home in Bath, Somerset has large, open plan rooms with floor to ceiling windows, resulting in a beautifully bright and airy space.
The home owner wanted a wood floor that would bring the spaces together; to create the feeling that one flows effortlessly into the next.
Coast, a wonderfully on-trend handmade floor from our Woodworks by Ted Todd portfolio, was specified. Coast is a pale, wide plank engineered wood floor that contains naturally occurring knots. The wide boards balance the large space, seamlessly blending with the scheme without disappearing into the background. The rest of the interior included white walls and natural wood elements that were combined with flashes of colour for a contemporary, Scandi feel.
The planks are 20mm thick, making the floor sturdy and hard-wearing to ensure that it lasts for decades. At our Cheshire workshop the boards were bleached to achieve its pale tone, and then the burnished hardwax oil finish was applied by hand. The finish is durable and natural, combining oils which deeply penetrate the wood’s pores before being hand polished to a deep patina.
This makes the installation of the floor quick, easy and guarantees that there is no colour change on-site.
