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:

1: REVEAL

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.”

2:EXPAND

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.

3: REFLECT

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.

We have traditional expertise to preserve the layers of patination, working out where to preserve, where to enhance and how to bring a wood floor into the present without losing its past. One thing we never forget is that the purpose of all of our efforts is to restore floors that work for you – whether you want a floor that blends seamlessly into the background, or one that makes a design statement.

Understanding Woods Amazing Qualities

Wood awakens our senses, smell, touch, see, feel, no matter what you do with such a wonderful natural product, the aim must always be to do justice to its “natural” quality. That demands a lot of experience, manual work and good judgement – but it’s worth it in the end. 

Wood means everything to us, in every aspect of the word, we stand in awe before its remarkable ability to be transformed, revealing its creativity in a thousand and one ways, that creative drive moves us to outdo ourselves and raise the bar so that the splendours and benefits of wood can offer a timeless legacy. We bring all our knowledge to every wood floor we sand and restore so that your wood floor reflects a perfect symmetry of nature.

Indulge in a world of wood, sumptuous tones and an elegant feel, delve into the possibilities and restore your wood floor enhance the texture, tone or colour, create a wood floor that can complete your design vision and amplifies the experience of your living space. Wood floors are bound to make you feel great, the warm hues and detailed grain will add to any room. 

In the end, though - ​You can take the wood out of the wild, but you can’t take the wild out of the wood.

​This is the philosophy that guides our restoration of wood floors​, no other material can compete with that, and that’s exactly why we love it.

There are many criteria that define wood

Are We The Right Company For You?

Beauty of a wood floor.jpg

To gain a better understanding about our floor sanding, you first need to know more about the driving force that led to our beginning. We were constantly being asked by our french polishing customers if we could restore their wood floors for them. It became apparent that many companies approach to wood floor sanding was with a limited understanding of wood repair and restoration to simply sand and varnish a wood floor. Acorn Floor Sanding came into being to address the three main problems afflicting wood floor sanding - 

 

  • Wrong renovation. 

  • Over sanding.

  • Inappropriate finishing.

Armed with many years of wood restoration experience, we decided to found Acorn Floor Sanding to infuse a breath of fresh air into the field of wood floor sanding and restoration. Of course, there isn’t ever just one solution, but we find it a really powerful way to approach wood floor restoration.

 

Being practical, we love blending old techniques like french polishing with emerging wood finishing technologies. We bring extensive wood finishing experience to our projects that provides a substantial resource of new ideas, as well as a broad spectrum of traditional products... all contributing to the distinctive nature of Acorn floor sanding. 

 

Every wood floor we restore is an opportunity to create something that is both extraordinary and unique, that is effective, functional and smart. So it’s little wonder that wood floors have long been a dominant trend in many types of properties. Last but not least, we love working with repairing, restoring and refinishing wood. These thoughts and beliefs are reflected in our approach to wood floor sanding and restoration.
