Criterion Flooring help restore a character cottage to it’s original splendour…
Recommended by a previous customer, Neil and the Criterion Flooring team visited a Victorian house in the Tring area with a view to use their expertise in assisting the owners to complete the renovation of the property. Central to this task was the fitting of a new wooden floor for the hallway complete with a custom made door mat well, carpeting the lounge staircase and bedrooms in addition to fitting vinyl flooring in the bathroom and toilet: The main objective was to retain and enhance the character of the house by using neutral colours and classic finishes that would compliment the traditional heritage of the property.Working in harmony with the owners the choice was a natural solid Oak floor in the hallway to match the front door and ‘cornstalk’ coloured carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms. The classic nature of the fittings in the bathroom and toilet required a sympathetic floor covering, the owners selecting Karndean Knight vinyl tiles in a classic Victorian style with key squares within the vinyl to give the flavour of original Victorian ceramic tiles (but at £27 per metre were better value and more practical in this instance).
The project was completed in well managed stages, in order to minimise inconvenience to the householder, commencing with fitting the wood floor in the hallway, followed by the flooring in bathroom and carpeting throughout. Neil and his team worked professionally and sympathetically throughout the project resulting in the house returning to it’s original classical style and splendour!
