French Oak

Timber Flooring Renovation

“Our client knew they wanted a timber floor to compliment the 1940’s style”


“There’s never been a better time to make those changes you’ve dreamt of a reality…”

Take a walk through this home renovation

Breathing new life into this 1940’s home started with, of course, the floor! As the existing floor was Jarrah and filled only a small area of the original home, our client knew she wanted to find a timber that would be both contemporary and still in keeping with the feel of the 1940’s style. 

Driftwood is a subtle mix of oak warmth and greys in the wood grain, allowing the interior to feel light and spacious, warm and inviting. A Contemporary palette of greys, soft blues, yellows and reds reveal themselves without dominating. And with the removal of some walls, introduction of others and the clever use of skylights the reimagined spaces are a joy to walk through. This family home will undoubtedly be filled with many years of enjoyment and memories.


This week’s reviews

“Can not fault this company, from selecting our floor to installation compelte, was just smooth sailing, from the team in the office to the installers they were alla pleasure to deal with.”



“We have just had our house renovated and the finishing touch was Lifewood flooring. We are absolutely delighted with the result, in particular the staircase that Brian our installer did so well. We chose the semi gloss Blackbutt timber which was installed both quickly and professionally by the Lifewood team. The whole process from first visiting Lifewood in Osborne Park to make our choice of timber was a pleasure. The Lifewood team are very accomodating and professional and we have no hesitation in recommending to anyone wanting a beautiful timber flooring. Job well done”
