Expansion Gaps – A gap for expansion must be left all around the edge of the floor, and it can be concealed with a moulding in the same timber as the floor, or alternatively the skirting boards can be removed before installation and then replaced on top of the new floor. If desired, new skirting boards in the same timber as the floor can be supplied and fitted.

Borders – Decorative borders can be considered, either for individual features, such as fireplaces, or for the entire floor.

Matwells – These are strongly recommended where an exterior door opens onto the new floor, and in domestic situations coir matting is usually installed in the well. They can be of any shape or size.

Doorways – Where the new floor meets other floor coverings there are different methods of covering the junction, ranging through metal cover plates (in brass, chrome, stainless steel, etc) to cork strip or hardwood thresholds which we manufacture on site ourselves
