Modern Parquet Flooring

Apartment with a View

There is a huge range of hardwood flooring available and any type can be installed or restored to achieve your desired look. Parquet flooring has a reputation for being old fashioned, but this image shows that the right choice of sand and finish can produce a modern and light effect. Our floor sanding experts are based in London, meaning they are local and on hand to advise you on the best look for your space. Find out more about floor patterns.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active Gym

Virgin Active is one of our London customers. They requested our wood floor restoration services for their aerobics hall and gym areas. Quicksand had no trouble working out a schedule to carry out the floor restoration when the gym was closed. We worked with minimal disruption to the business and made sure all the areas were left clean and tidy, ready for customers to use the following morning.


Modern Floor Restoration

Quicksand are experts at floor restoration. This parquet block living room floor in Essex was restored with Osmo oil, creating a finished wood that is modern and rich. As you can see, we understand that pattern and colour combinations can transform the look of a floor and is a perfect restoration technique to bring new life and flavour into a room.

Sand and paint for the National Theatre on South Bank

Large Commercial Contracts

We have a track record for completing large commercial projects on time, to budget and at a high standard. As this in-progress photo shows, our floor sanding experts worked at the National Theatre on South Bank, London, creating a beautiful finish to their wood floor. We have refitted workshop floors, corporate headquarters, shops, schools and train stations. We are capable and professional no matter how large the project.

Dark Wood

Dark Stain

We offer a huge range of wood staining services, with everything from coloured stains to dark. For this customer, we first restored their floor using floor sanding techniques, bringing back its original beauty, and then stained the wood to achieve this striking effect. The owners selected a very dark stain, which provides a dramatic contrast with their white walls.
