The room was in a period cottage dating back from the early 1800's our clients wanted the room to give the cottage a more original feel, as they wished to keep the look of the original floor boards in some of the rooms.
As you can see from the first few photos, the floor boards in the room look quite bad and this is what you would typically find when lifting up the carpet in many old property.
The black tar like paint would have been painted around the edge of most rooms in the UK up until the late 1950s and a rug would be placed in the middle.
After lots of hard work with the dust free floor sanding machines we had sanded off the black edge and blended the floor so it looked even in natural colour.
Our clients had chosen to have the floors stained with antique oak oil stain, then we finished the floors with a clear hardwax oil.
