Case study: Mansfield
The owner did the original floor himself and areas were starting to lift. He wanted a better looking and functional floor, so he asked us to assess and provide recommendations.
The house was not legal height underneath. The bigger issue was the floor itself was so sloped, we felt dizzy working on it. The slope was too great to level and would have represented a huge cost to the owner. We needed a solution where the area could be functional but also aesthetically appealing.
We grinded back all the existing work and started again.
As we couldn’t overcome the levelling issues, we used light colours including a light flake. The flake can have varying optical effects, and in this case, was designed to at least look like the area was more level than it actually was.
The lighter colours also gave a greater perspective of space, even though the area was exactly the same.
