Leek: Reclaimed Oak Parquet

Case Study: Reclaimed Oak Parquet Installation in Leek, Staffordshire

Project Overview

In the quaint town of Leek, Staffordshire, NSB Flooring took on an exciting project that had the team working with reclaimed oak. The client’s desire was to restore life to forgotten blocks of wood and integrate them into a modern space. What followed was an extraordinary transformation that involved not just expertise and precision but also the collaborative effort of various suppliers.

The Challenge

Reclaimed wood has its own unique character, but it also brings unique challenges. Ensuring that these aged blocks would fit and adhere properly required meticulous planning, the right materials, and a keen eye for detail.

The Solution

Design & Planning: The floor was designed in a herringbone pattern with a two-block border, providing a vintage charm that complements the history of the wood.

Materials & Suppliers: The success of this project depended greatly on the materials used:

– Blocks were supplied by @allaboutparquet, known for their quality reclaimed wood.

– Adhesive was carefully selected from Dave at @grandparkett, ensuring a perfect bond.

– In a moment of crisis, @peakoak provided the glue, showcasing great collaboration within the industry.

– A finish of 10% @morrells matt clear oil was used, adding that extra touch of elegance.

Execution: The NSB Flooring team expertly installed the reclaimed oak, paying attention to every detail. The installation process was efficient but delicate, preserving the integrity of the blocks while creating a flawless surface.

The Outcome

The result is a breathtaking floor that tells a story. The reclaimed oak blocks have been revitalized and now grace the space with warmth and character. The clear matt oil finish accentuates the natural beauty of the wood, and the herringbone pattern with the two-block border adds an artistic touch.

The project was not just a testament to NSB Flooring’s craftsmanship but also to the power of collaboration and the magic that can happen when history is woven into modern design.
