Restoring and Revitalizing Historic Charm

Overview of the Project

We recently completed an extensive floor renovation in Wood Green, London. The client contacted us with a significant project, which included refurbishing around 32 carpeted steps and restoring a room that had been without flooring for nearly a year. The aim was to lift the carpets and restore the wooden floors beneath, while also fitting the office room with flooring similar to the downstairs area.

Restoration and Matching of the Downstairs Floor

Initial Assessment and Recommendations

For the room without flooring, we recommended using unfinished wood. We provided several colour samples to ensure a perfect match with the downstairs wood. This approach allowed for a seamless transition between the two areas, maintaining a cohesive look throughout the house.

Detailed Discussion and Planning for Stairs

The staircase restoration was a more complex task. Discussions with the client spanned approximately nine months, during which various options were explored. Given the stairs’ history, which included a central runner and painted white edges, we suggested replacing the wood. The previous setup had caused significant discolouration, which would be challenging to address with a clear finish.

Decision to Restore Original Boards

Ultimately, the client decided to restore the original boards, despite the complications. The white paint had penetrated deeply into the wood, making standard sanding ineffective. While a higher budget could have facilitated this process, replacing all the stairs would have been more cost-effective. We compromised by agreeing to restore the upstairs staircases and stain them to match the mahogany balustrade. The first flight of stairs was fitted with a runner in the middle and painted white edges, maintaining the house’s character.

Challenges and Solutions

Board Replacements and Electrical Considerations

During the project, a few boards on the landings required replacement. This task revealed an almost complete floor replacement due to underlying issues. Notably, numerous electrical cables were found beneath the floorboards. We advise against securing floorboards with screws or nails without proper assessment, as it can lead to significant electrical hazards.

Completing the Renovation

The entire renovation took over two weeks to complete. The floors were finished with a durable lacquer, enhancing their longevity and appearance. We provided the client with DIY maintenance instructions to ensure the floors remain in excellent condition. Regular maintenance, recommended every six months, will help preserve the floors for years to come.


This floor renovation in Wood Green was a complex but rewarding project. The careful planning, extensive discussions, and meticulous execution resulted in a beautifully restored home. The client was extremely satisfied with the outcome, appreciating the blend of restored original features and new installations. The project highlights our commitment to delivering high-quality floor renovations tailored to each client’s unique needs.
