Wooden pallets transformed into parquet flooring

Two brothers from Beyton have created herringbone parquet flooring made out of old wood pallets.

It took brothers Charlie Jack and Harry Wright many hours to dismantle the pallets and cut the wood into flooring blocks. They used the extra time they had during lockdown to transform their mother’s living room floor, which was outdated and in need of renovation. They originally planned to use some reclaimed oak they had in storage, but it was found to be too worn and damaged to use.

Jack and Wright asked around the local community and on Facebook if anyone knew where they could find some spare pallets. They managed to locate some and spent a day checking them for nails, removing the wood and cutting it to size with a table saw. They then glued and pinned the wood in a herringbone pattern. The final part of the process was oiling and finishing the flooring.

The brothers are expert carpenters and like to use recycling materials. They posted their floor covering pictures to Instagram for their many social media fans, and they reported that their mother was pleased with her new floor.

Most homeowners who want wood flooring in Cheshire or on the Wirral don’t have the necessary skills to make their own wood flooring They rely on professional wood floor installers. Wood flooring using timber from sustainable forests is an environmentally friendly material, and it can easily be recycled at the end of its life. Flooring planks made from recycled wood are also available.
