Bosch Timber Floors Project 4
Bosch Timber Floors finished this beautiful home in the foothills of Darling Downs with a classic timber floor that perfectly complements the home’s modern style. Featuring light cream and brown tones of standard and better-grade Blackbutt timber, the finished product blends beautifully with the home’s natural colour palette and modern finishes.
Blackbutt is one of Bosch Timber Floors’ most popular products. The timber’s soft tones work well with a range of colour schemes and can create an illusion of extra space in small or confined areas. The wide, 110mm boards have a strong grain structure that creates visual interest, while enhancing the overall aesthetic of any space.
Bosch Timber Floors supplied all of the materials for this project and worked in conjunction with flooring specialist Brendan Heal from Floor Restore to install, sand and coat the floor. Heal used Selleys direct stick flooring adhesive and vapour barrier as a strong single system adhesion to attach the timber to the concrete subfloor. After sanding the floor, Heal coated the timber with Bona Traffic HD, which is a heavy-duty waterborne coating with a beautiful satin finish.
The 110mmx13mm timber was installed using the direct stick method. This is a cost-effective installation method, which works well with 110mm boards. When installing timber boards wider than 110mm it is recommended that installation is completed by the plank on ply method. This installation process costs more, but will increase the floors stability and decrease the likelihood of the timber expanding and contracting in the changing seasons.
Blackbutt timber is also available in a feature grade for clients who want to achieve a rustic finish. Timber floors are easy to look after and can be cleaned with a vacuum or microfiber mop. Versatile in design, the company’s timber floors look fantastic in both traditional and contemporary environments.
