How to lay reclaimed Parquet flooring

Laying Reclaimed Parquet Flooring

As with most things, when you know how to do it, and have the right tools and materials, fitting reclaimed parquet / woodblock flooring is relatively simple process.

We appreciate that sometimes customers can feel a little daunted with the thought of putting down reclaimed parquet / woodblock flooring.

All these little pieces of timber arrive and its difficult to imagine how they will ever come together to make an amazing floor.  So, we thought we would share a little video with you, of a recent project (The Cape table & Interiors Holywood) that we were delighted to be involved with.


With so much pressure on the worlds natural forests, the client decided  to go for a Eco friendly, rich, interesting  East African parquet floor,  salvaged from Windmill Bookstore in Lytham St Annes.

The finish

The reclaimed parquet floor was not overly reworked to ensure that it was left with a casual and timeless look.

We think the project looks amazing and its difficult to believe that this flooring has not been in place for decades.

Hope you enjoy the video.
