Living room and hallway
- Engineered wood flooring Basic Oak Pure wide plank
This story is all about a 2 ½ year old craftsman called Henry. His graphic designer parents recently bought the apartment they had rented for 9 years as part of a housing community. The laminate flooring in the old apartment was cracked and the more active Henry became, the more dangerous and more uncomfortable it was for him to play. It was time to renovate the apartment from the ground up.
Parador supported the family as part of its campaign "40 years, 40 projects" with the engineered wood flooring Basic Oak Pure wide plank. Henry was highly enthusiastic right from the beginning, and he has always remained faithful to his motto "Henry helps".
In particular when laying the flooring nothing was done without him. As soon as a tool was in sight, he got out his own toolbox straight away and set to work. The new wooden floor has changed something for everyone however. "The tone of the new flooring is much warmer and all the colours look very different," tells Johanna B. and redesigned the interior."You feel comfortable immediately thanks to the warmth under your feet and the smell of wood in your nose." So much so that for the time being we have moved our reading and cuddling spot from the sofa onto the floor.

At times Mathias B. and Henry did not wholly agree on the measurements, but the slightly bevelled edges of the mini-groove nevertheless ensured a harmonious floorboard transition.
The young family was able to buy the apartment as part of a housing community. One concern they had, however, was to protect the listed building from investors.
Henry had so much fun taking measurements. The first calculating synapses have already been formed. And a 10-year quality guarantee makes Henry times four.
For the past two weeks now the toy trains have been going round in circles on the new flooring. The surface of the light oak is not smooth, but has a universal wood texture embossing.
The new flooring Oak Pure wide plank makes the room even lighter and Johanna B. was able to set new accents in the decor.
"You feel comfortable immediately thanks to the warmth under your feet and the smell of wood in your nose," explains Johanna B.
What’s more, the new play area is great for getting the toys out – the application of matt lacquer and natural oil gives it a woody smell.
