Residential Project Case Study: Church Converted Home

Project Overview

This project featured a unique property: a historic church that was converted into a residential space*. The new homeowners wanted to honour and preserve the estate’s beautiful aesthetic. Their interior design was heavily inspired by an Old World Rustic style, and made use of planed, matte oiled, and honed finishes. The rustic style complements the estate’s stunning architecture, which featured arched doorways and tall glass windows.

The homeowners wanted their new flooring to harmonize with the estate’s luxurious and historical ambiance. They were looking for a premium European White Oak flooring product with extra-long and extra-wide planks to complement the space’s large, open concept layout. Hardwood is an ideal flooring option for historic properties, as its timeless quality perfectly pairs with these buildings’ elegant structures.

Final Outcome

After visiting European Flooring’s designer showroom and exploring our engineered wood flooring selection, the homeowners selected the Atelier Collection’s Alpen model in a Select Grade with 8 5/8” wide planks. This flooring features a handcrafted French White Oak product that’s naturally oxidized to create a mid-tone brown with moderate variations. Only top-graded planks with few knots were hand-selected for this project. Our Verona Floor’s engineered flooring is also specially designed for the North American climate, which will help ensure the hardwood’s structural stability against fluctuating temperatures and preserve its longevity.

Luxury Engineered Flooring

The flooring was expertly installed using our certified installation services, and the homeowners were pleased with the final result. Their new engineered wood flooring beautifully highlights the estate’s historic architecture and rustic interior design. Moreover, the superior quality of the Atelier Collection’s French White Oak flooring guarantees that they’ll be able to enjoy their flooring for years to come.
