The photos galleries – bespoke, classic modern, contemporary, traditional, exotic, country and commercial – portray actual floors designed and installed for clients.

Timber: Bespoke Designs and Finishes

The Timber Collection illustrates timber and patterns in different colours, which have been developed for clients over the years. They are constantly evolving as Walking on Wood continues to innovate and seek solutions to specific clients’ requirements.

We lay well-known patterns, including Versailles, Herringbone, Chevron and Basket-weave, create individual patterns, and work with clients to design parquet wood flooring that combines wood with leather, carpet, steel and glass.

We have long-term relationships with several European hardwood and ancillary suppliers to ensure delivery of the most suitable products in a short lead time. All of our suppliers comply with EU guidelines for sustainability and our timber is FSC-certified.

Installation: Full-Service Company

The installation process is explained on three levels: (1) an overview of the entire process; (2) a case study of the Museum of Garden History; and (3) fitting details of areas that require special attention.

All Walking on Wood designers, fitters and finishers are trained according to company standards. We guarantee every installation and the actual products are generally guaranteed for up to ten years from the timber supplier.

Specialists: Professional Partners in Related Areas

We select the best possible partners to ensure that our parquet wood flooring co-exists with sound-proofing systems, under-floor heating and new concrete floors.

Walking on Wood generally installs Accorub for impact sound proofing, , tested by Salford University and recommended by specialist sound engineers who have been able to overrule existing leases against wooden floors. However, Walking on Wood can supply any soundproofing, the most common ones are Accorub, Technics 5 and Acoustilay 15.

Our engineered floors (available in the majority of the timber collection and patterns) are specially designed for under-floor heating. Designed in conjunction with leading underfloor heating suppliers, the floors won’t leave gaps, cup or warp when installed.

To enable the wooden floor to be fitted over a new concrete sub-floor quickly, Walking on Wood uses especially effective damp proofing membranes.

We suggest easy-to-use maintenance products for oiled or varnished floors to preserve the quality of the floor throughout its lifetime.
