Supply of engineered oak flooring and limestone flooring for west coast island property



The Brief

The architect was looking to specify hardwood and natural stone flooring suitable for use over underfloor heating and which would be complimentary to their clients very unique build on the Isle of Harris. 

The Solution

We recommended our Beaulieu Chocolat oak flooring in 180mm wide boards, as this bleached style board offers a distinctly coastal feel, and the underlying grey tones work wonderfully with the local natural stone used to build this fantastic home. The results were stunning, particularly in the lounge and bedrooms where our Beaulieu Chocolat flooring goes hand-in-hand with our client's driftwood style furniture, and where you feel as if you are actually living outdoors.

A limestone flooring with cool tones was required to keep the palette consistent and this was achieved using our Tundra Honed Limestone in 600x400mm tile size. The honed finish of the Tundra Limestone offers a slightly more contemporary feel in a property cleverly designed to incorporate both the old and the new.
