Engineered Oak Flooring & Doors
Adam first visited Oak by Design approximately four years ago when he was in the process of planning the renovation of his period farmhouse in Stamford Bridge, on the outskirts of York.
Richard visited the property at the outset and Adam then visited the showroom on a number of occasions afterwards, but on the whole, Adam knew what he wanted.
Over the next couple of years, Adam patiently replaced all the doors in the home with solid oak ones. The majority of the doors have been Oak by Designs double sided planked ones. These are finished at 50mm and are a solid, heavy door – the Rolls Royce of doors!
Before the hanging of these doors, Adam replaced each lining with an oak casing –3 three sided covers which encase the sides and top of the door opening.
As well as replacing the linings he then installed new architrave and skirting boards throughout the house. To keep the finish clean he chose a bullnose profile.
All the oak Adam chose for the house was fumed by Oak by Design to give a lovely rich aged colour. At the time they also fumed the natural oak flooring. Their pre-finished range of engineered oak flooring has a Smoked Natural finish board that is the same finish. This is a lovely warm, rich natural colour; traditional enough to suit an older property but still light enough to be contemporary for a young family in a modern home.
A 5 metre long RSJ Cover was also supplied along with oak cills and an oak fender.
Earlier this year Adam approached Oak by Design for some bespoke furniture for the family boot room. He had designed an oak shoe storage system, welly rack and cupboards.
These were made and delivered in August. After their joiner had installed them all, photo’s were taken of all the oak products that Oak by Design had supplied over the years.
The oak has provided a traditional feel to what is a contemporary home, perfect for a young family
