Our aim is to share our passion and the knowledge that we gained restoring wood floors for over 35 years

Innovative solutions and technical excellence form the basis of our wood floor restoration service


And we are mindful of the intrinsic beauty and individual merit of a wood floor in all its manifestations

Always interested in creating a unique floor, where we could combine the traditional skills of french polishing where we learnt our craft, with exciting modern wood finishes, we also recognise every wood floor requires a unique and individual response. Acorn encourages “outside the box” thinking from the initial processes, resulting in wood floor restoration that focus not only on aesthetic appearance, but also address function. Creating the difference in a way that is functional, but also captures the life and history of a wood floor.  

Our floor sanding and restoration focuses on the original ideal of the wood floor and strives to preserve that aesthetic, we use many traditional methods and techniques whilst utilising modern durable wood finishes, creating specialist patinas and natural colours through a variety of traditional wood restoration processes that are exclusive to us. 

A fascination with wood and traditional methods of working with wood is visible in the attention to detail in the floors bearing our signature.

Unlike some alchemy of static perfection, wood floor restoration carefully draws each floor’s individuality out, revealing an untold history and ever-evolving, untamed spirit, an invitation to reconnect with our environment, wood floor restoration offers breathtaking works of nature and luxury that are true to form.

For us, staying ahead of the game, so to speak, is essential.

There are always new, more efficient ways of doing things and we apply the latest techniques to every project. The combination of theory and hands-on experience with wood restoration and techniques enables us to continue to improve our floor restoration skills. Generated from years of hands on experience of wood restoration, in-depth product knowledge and our French polishing background. We stand by our claim that with the right treatment, even the oldest, shabbiest wood floors can look amazing. Even if they require extensive work done, we find that never is it not worth spending time on them. They will be worth it!


They say that craftsmanship is a lost art. 

That the days of things made with hand are gone. 

That the idea of speed and quantity has overtaken the ideals of quality

We beg to differ.

Because, we do a lot more than just sand the floor 

It’s here where things are done differently and always done with attention to detail, using traditional renovation methods.

Wood floors are not simply sanded - wood floors are restored  

And the art of the craftsman lives on.


This isn’t because they have no idea what they want, on the contrary it is often because they know what they like they are just unsure how to get there. Of course, no two clients have the same lives, tastes or dreams, just as no two wood floors have the same light, proportions or history. Each and every client is different; and so, too, is each and every unique wood floor.
