Dalston Road - Carlisle

Exclusive wooden floors - Long lasting quality!  





In December, 2011 - Origin Direct carried out an installation within this beautiful Victorian property on Dalston Road. 

The project came about due to the joining wall between the front Lounge and the dining room at the rear of the property being removed.  The owners felt that the front room was becoming an unused part of the home.  The removal of the adjoining wall brought a huge amount of light into the room and has provided them with a stunning open Lounge that is over 9 meters in length.

The specification from the client was that the overall style was to be traditional and homely without being too absorbent with the age of the building so a natural oak from our Origin Hardwoods Multiply range was selected.

Due to the age of the property, we could not remove the 9" high skirting boards for fear that the horsehair plaster would fall off the walls so the decision was to install a secondary skirting board around the perimeter of the flooring.  The splayed, 3" high skirting board was knotted, primed and painted in the workshop prior to being taken to site and fitted in order to ease the amount of work for the client following our completion.

The bay window picture above shows how seamless the use of a secondary skirt can look and it offers a much higher quality of finish.
