Amtico Spacia with curved piping border fitted in Carnmore, Co.Galway.

This kitchen in Carnmore, Co.Galway gets a beautiful new Amtico Spacia floor with custom inlaid border.

T here are many colour variations of oak. If you like a very natural looking oak with realistic oak graining, then ‘Traditional Oak SS5W2514‘ from Amtico Spacia is the one for you. Traditional Oak is A mid tone wood with honey golden shades and a realistic oak grain that is perfectly suited to either traditional or modern kitchens. This customer picked Xtra size, 184 x 1219mm. This wide plank version suited the open plan kitchen/dining room very well.

The first day involved the preparation of the ceramic tiled subfloor. If ceramic tiles are well bonded (not loose), then there is no need to take them off the floor, I use smoothing compounds that can go over the ceramic tiles. I start by cleaning the floor, and then priming with Stopgap P131 neoprene primer, followed by an application of a 4mm layer of Stopgap 1200pro. This produces a lovely smooth cementitious subfloor coating on which to lay the new Amtico floor.

Takes time & patience to install correctly

The mainfield planks were fitted diagonally, with a 1 x plank perimeter & piping border. The centre island unit in the kitchen got an extra bit of tic though! The same piping border (AROB6400) was installed around the island unit, but this time with curved corners. This is a very simple but effective custom look, but takes time & patience to install correctly.

    Dara provided an excellent service from start to finish. He called to the house a number of times helping us make a decision on which product to use, arrived at the agreed date to install it and did a superb job. He is very professional and his attention to detail is commendable. I have no hesitation in recommending Dara.
