From Pinterest Dream to Flooring Reality

Mar 9, 2023 | Black Forest, French Oak, Staircase

French Oak Black Forest timber flooring.

Our client, Susannah, was struggling to decide on the floor for her dream home.

She was originally considering an engineered light grey Oak timber, but couldn’t decide between warm or cold tones. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon an inspirational picture from Pinterest where she found her dream floor.

In less than 10 minutes we were able to match her Pinterest inspiration with our Black Forest French Oak flooring, and the rest is now history.

“It’s so hard picking the floors for your dream home without being about to walk on them. I was sold when I could actually see the flooring in a large space.”

After visiting our Osborne park showroom, Susannah was finally able to feel confident she had found her ideal floor.

Being able to see and feel the flooring in a large space allowed her to truely see what the floor would look like in her home.

The installation was seamless, and Susannah is thrilled with her choice.
