Ground floor of open-plan town house
- Trendtime 9 engineered wood flooring: oak basalt Old Block pattern
- Skirtings: Monochrome white gloss D003
Ceramics artist Yuri and Product Manager Holger live with their two daughters, Minna (6) and Yara (3), in an open-plan town house in Bonn. Over the past nine years, the German-Korean family has adapted the house step-by-step to fit their changing needs. They were not big fans of the austere, cold tiles on the ground floor. The whole family enjoys walking around barefoot, but three-year-old Yara particularly loves sitting and playing on the floor.
Parador supported the family by providing oak basalt Old Block pattern Trendtime 9 engineered wood flooring. With this support, they were able to entirely redesign the ground floor and install new underfloor heating with Yuri in mind: in her homeland of Korea, the floor is an active part of life and so heating it is the norm. Warm underfoot and with a vintage style, the natural oak basalt Old Block engineered wood flooring lends the room a truly cosy feel for the whole family to enjoy.

Barefoot forever! The German-Korean family attaches great importance to haptics and natural building materials.
Their town house in Bonn is very bright, but the tiles on the ground floor were cold and uncomfortable.
Korean-born Yuri’s dream could finally become reality: installing underfloor heating with a haptically-pleasing real wood floor.
Parador supported the Yuri and Holger by providing oak basalt Old Block pattern Trendtime 9 engineered wood flooring.
The family love the vivid aesthetic of the new engineered wood flooring. “There’s a lot of coming and going in our home. The floor has to be able to handle it!”
The “Blue Angel” and the PEFC seal also guarantee the ecological origin of the wood from environmentally friendly agriculture.
The timeless design of the oak basalt Old Block pattern Trendtime 9 engineered wood flooring is well-suited to the open plan architecture of the house.
The combination of Korean ceramics and cosy oak creates a unique atmosphere. The brushed texture enhances the wonderful natural feel of the wood.
