Georgie Osborne Grand Designs Live

Georgie Osborne is one of the UK’s up and coming generation of young designers who believe in thinking strategically about the function of a space to develop designs that lend themselves individual needs.   In particular, she focuses on the use of wood and how this natural material can be integrated into such a wide range of environments.  She points out that people have always seen wood as a perfect option but as consumers are moving away from plastic it’s experiencing a significant return to mainstream design.

Distressed Wood Floors

Brand new wooden flooring is a wonderful choice but sometimes what you need is a style more suited to a rustic or older room. Distressed engineered wooden flooring from Maples and Birch has been deliberately pre-aged to have a slightly worn appearance.  This often adds real character to an area and ensures true continuity of design.

How do I install my wood floor?

Having purchased their flooring elsewhere people often ask our advisers how they should install their wood floor, instead of referring people to our Q&A’s page or to read the instruction we try and oblige as we know that trying to find a simple answer online is hard or from the store where the wood floor was purchased.So let’s try and make it a bit simple for our customers wanting to know:Floating:The new floor is fitted over an underlay without being fixed to the subfloor.
