DIY - A labour of love

A labour of love

Last summer we sold some parquet to customers who are local to us here on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Our customers came to visit and spent time choosing the wood types they liked best, and being practical people, planned to do the fitting themselves. We were able to help them with fitting advice which we provide to our customers, and put them in touch with a supplier of all the other things you need to complete the job.

Recently Nikki very kindly sent us a few photos to show the process and best of all, the outcome!

And the final result - room 1

Nikki commented as follows: "It's been a labour of love, but the results speak for themselves (My husband says however much your fitters charge, it's worth every penny!). Our pleasure in having a floor that is unique, recycled, handcrafted, with so much character and warmth, is immeasurable. And the wonderful service and practical help we had along the way from Parquet Parquet made us confident to undertake and complete the project, restoring style to our home and value to our house." 

So that is how you do it yourself, with a lot of time and a great deal of passion, but as you can see, the results are worth it!
