Natural Genius: Biscuit by Patricia Urquiola

We'd like to place a well deserved spotlight on these brilliant pattered floors from Listone Giordano. Inspired by fabrics, Biscuit is a collection that focuses on rediscovering the decorative power of wood flooring.

Exploring the concepts of softness and femininity, designer Patricia Urquiola redefines the classic rules of what a floor should look like and the traditional laying patterns that have been in place for over a century.

LEVELLING | FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS

We are usually drawn to the beauty and aesthetic of a floor but the reality is, true enjoyment of a floor comes from how well it performs. To this extent, a properly levelled substrate is the best indicator of the sustainability and survival of your flooring investment. 

To set yourself up for success, ensure that your substrate is clean, dry, sound, & flat. Doing so will ensure your flooring boards will have the right foundation to stay aligned and together. 

Many flooring manufacturers also specify moisture and levelling expectations that must be met in order for warranties to be valid. Doing your homework and taking the proper due diligence with the installation of your floor will help you avoid heart ache and unforeseen expenses. 

Here are some additional resources that may prove useful as you move forward on your flooring journey.
