At Acorn we appreciate that being provocateurs and challenging assumptions is what catalyses new ways of thinking. And new ways of thinking are what lead to experimentation and fresh perspectives that result in wood restoration and wood finishing innovation. We are known for our traditional, expressiveness and attention to detail. This doesn’t mean we reject all traditional forms and concepts. We simply attempt to reimagine them in a more relevant context. It is within this tension between traditional value and modern invention that Acorn Floor Sanding operates.

We are never complacent – we never stop innovating!

Restoring original wood is a specialist craft that requires a comprehensive set of knowledge: of wood history, wood restoration and wood finishing.

Any wood restoration processes should flow together, sometimes merging contradictory ideas, sometimes inventing new approaches, and often re-awakening and re-inventing older methods. So, while the role of the wood restorer is on the one side of creative restoration, on the other side, a wood restorer must also be quite practical, respecting the floor condition and limitations. We work through the base understandings and parameters for every wood floor so that we can develop insightful restoration solutions. Whereas the approach taken by many floor sanding companies is usually associated with only sanding and varnishing.

The six core principles of Acorn Floor Sanding 

Are not a floor sanding method, but rather, a philosophy to inspire and stimulate thinking in new ways.

These include: 


We uncover neglected wood floors applying, materials and processes to capture and preserve the history of the day to day life that are often missed or forgotten in a wood floor’s existence or creation. 

The manifesto encourages us to “think beyond perceived functionality, physical attributes and condition to consider a wood floor’s real and potential expressions.”


We consider the real and potential “expressions” of a wood floor beyond their perceived functionality and physical appearance. The highly conceptualised principle suggests that we should consider aspects beyond shape and aesthetics, instead pay more attention to the form of interactions that take place between floors and spaces.


We believe wood and wood floors induce contemplation and ‘reflective consumption’. “Wood floor restoration can question not only ecological values, but also perceptual and emotional experiences that the unique materiality of a wood floor can deliver.” To restore a wood floor, and emphasise the natural beauty and patina of wood.

Our processes are “open source” and collaborative, relying on our 40 years wood finishing experience and updated understanding of the latest materials and methodology so that our wood floor restoration may continue to evolve into the future. Today we constantly evolving new wood finishing ideas, as well as constantly developing solutions to repairs and restoration problems.


We encourage clients to become active participants in the wood floor restoration process, every floor is different, hence there is no general approach to sanding it, embracing our client’s ideas and to give you a better understanding of the renovation process. Clients who are a part of the restoration process are generally satisfied with the end result.


We recognise that richer experiences can emerge from the dynamic maturation of wood floors over time. This means looking ahead, evaluating processes and outcomes that are most reliable and needed for both wood floor restoration and finishing.
