Highlighting the Beauty of Open-Plan Living

In a home that favours a more minimalist décor, parquet flooring can add a level of depth and complexity without detracting from clean lines and accent pieces. This home in Kingston Upon Thames was well suited to accept a herringbone slate grey parquet that would compliment rather than overwhelm its modestly sized rooms. Installing the same flooring throughout the hallways lends an air of spaciousness that makes the most of oversized doorways. Skylights allow sufficient natural light to pick up on the flooring’s warm tones, which in turn highlights the overall sense of barrier-free living.  As an added touch, the slate grey finish accentuates the stone paving that lies just beyond the floor-to-ceiling glazing, integrating the living room with the adjoining exterior.
