Oak Finish hearth and Base in West Los Angeles contemporary finish.
This upscale West Los Angeles Residence, has taken a traditional path with their floor choice. This floor works in any space. This is a nice example of a custom, on site, sanded, and finished, hardwood floor. This is really the original traditional methodology, and in many peoples view the best way to go.
This particular hardwood floor is slightly wider than a normal oak strip flooring, and is a nice complement to narrower boards that meet up with it going into other parts of this house. This really is a great choice for updating an older house, because color and texture can match the older floors perfectly, while still achieving, and updated look in the new areas with the wider slats. This is a smooth sanded texture finished with four coats of polyurethane, satin finish, for a velvety soft sheen. This designer also decided to incorporate the floor color into the baseboard, and mantle, for a really beautiful, modern coordinated effect. This home is close to many upscale areas with older homes that are trying to achieve a more modern look. This is very common in Beverly Hills, Westwood, Culver City, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, and everywhere else that the are a lot of older upscale home, being given modern facelifts. This is a option, that won’t brake the bank, and will give several sandings, and refinishings. It can be refinished three or four times, if done by real professionals, like Greg Garber.
