Boen AS















Oak Andante White Live Natural oil

A theme that often comes back to me while working with new customers is the flooring, and that I have good advice. I think it is important to see the house as an entirety instead of room by room. And because the floor is such a big surface in several rooms, it can bring forth a connection between the different rooms throughout the house.

Boen ASAnd because of that, the choice of flooring is one of the most important choices you 
make when you are renovating a house. The trends show us that most people are 
choosing light hardwood floors, but no matter what colour you like, an investment in 
a quality hardwood floor with a timeless expression is something you will not regret. 
In our house, we chose Oak Andante White with Live Natural oil from 
BOEN/Sentrum Bygg in every recreation room. The floor creates a natural feeling of
entirety in our house and is such a beautiful floor!

But when you have chosen a floor, there is another question that comes to mind: skirtings. 
In new houses, there are a lot of people that choose to not have skirtings at all, because 
they want a firm look. There is always a difference between older and newer houses, 
but I still believe that skirtings are the icing on the cake, and a worthy closure for 
Boen ASbeautiful hardwood flooring. Wide and profiled skirtings have a manorial and very 
nice look, but for this house I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, and that is why
I chose skirtings without profile.

White or painted skirtings could give the expression of framing your wall, but at the 
same time create a distance to the floor. That is why we chose skirtings made of 
parquet in the exact same colour as our floor. It extends the floor up to the wall and 
make the room look bigger. A small advice: If you cut the skirtings with a 45-degree 
section you can avoid small slips, since the wood might expand or contract.
