Karndean Art Select Fiore with border work in central Birmingham
November 6, 2018
The client came to us looking for inspiration and ideas to transform the look and feel of an apartment right in the centre of Birmingham. Once the brief and requirements were understood, we looked at the available options to create the desired look.
The decision was made to go for Karndean Art select Fiore Marble LM16, with a diamond border around the edge in the hallway. Carpet was also required for one bedroom and the lounge area, with the Cormar Primo Plus range being the most suitable for the level of use and look required. The client also wanted to have an electric under floor heating system supplied and installed, which Mazon Flooring are both experienced and confident in providing.
The first stage was to install the under floor heating system, decide on the position of thermostat and run of the cables. Once this was all finalised, a backer board was installed to provide a base and insulation, and then the under floor heating cable were installed and fixed down to stop them from floating up. We then applied a coat of screed to encapsulate the cables. After the screed had dried a few days later, we were ready to proceed with the Karndean flooring installation.
The look and feel of the hallway border and central field was pivotal in the whole design of the apartment, and this is where the majority of time was spent. Once the hallway border and central area were set out and installed, the bathroom and kitchen could then be run off this design.
In conjunction with the Karndean work, we uplifted and removed carpet from the bedroom and lounge, and installed new Cormar Primo Plus carpet and underlay.
Once all of the work was completed, we trimmed any doors that required adjusting, and even cut a new bath panel and supporting frame in for the client.
Overall, a stunning job, with hard work and extra time spent to get things right from the start.
"I was impressed with Mazon Flooring from my first visit to their showroom at Probuild360 in Birmingham. Alex took me through the flooring options, discouraged me from spending too much and made some good suggestions for carpet. I chose a Karndean with a border which, took more time to lay than originally estimated but it was worth it as it looks fabulous. The tradesmen took a lot of time and care to get it right. I also got them to lay electric underfloor heating. Not only did they help with my floor but also provided some tradesmen for some other small jobs required for my renovation. After sales service is also good, Alex came back to reseat the edge strip between the carpet and the Vinyl which was a little uneven. Very happy with the end result and would highly recommend."
