DIY Reclaimed Parquet Flooring Installation from our customer’s point of view:
Some while ago we sold some parquet to customers who are local to us, here on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Our customers came to visit and spent time choosing the wood types they liked. They planned to do the fitting themselves because they had a level of practical experience. We were able to help them with fitting advice which we provide to our customers, and put them in touch with a supplier of all the other things you need to complete the job. This was their first experience of DIY reclaimed parquet flooring installation. We are very keen to encourage customers to have a go themselves because it makes reclaimed parquet very accessible to many people, and it is so much nicer than some of the other flooring options available today. Not just nicer, far superior quality too. Not to mention the provenance of timber that has already had a life.
Recently Nikki very kindly sent us a few photos to show how it went, and best of all, the outcome!
‘Labour of love’
Nikki commented as follows: “It’s been a labour of love, but the results speak for themselves (My husband says however much your fitters charge, it’s worth every penny!). Our pleasure in having a floor that is unique, recycled, handcrafted, with so much character and warmth, is immeasurable. And the wonderful service and practical help we had along the way from Parquet Parquet made us confident to undertake and complete the project, restoring style to our home and value to our house.”
So that is why we say DIY reclaimed parquet flooring installation is a labour of love. However with a lot of time and a great deal of passion, as you can see, the results are worth it!
