Toms’ New London Store

Our latest Solacir Interiors Microscreed floor has been installed at the new Toms store just off Carnaby Street in London.

We are delighted to have worked with a such progressive company as Toms and encourage everyone who visits to see a Microscreed floor to buy something, even if it is just a coffee to earn the benefit of there ‘one to one’ charity scheme.

Toms Microscreed Floor

It is hard to tell from the finished photos, but the existing floor is not solid, it is a suspended floor on timber joists. Floored Genius’ technical expertise has enabled us to engineer a solution to give the client a floor with a solid concrete finish.

Refurbishment projects can be tricky, so a versatile material like Solacir Interiors’ Microscreed is ideal for an old building in London with an existing timber floor that requires a contemporary concrete finish.

Only Solacir Interiors Microscreed has enough tensile strength to be laid on to suspended substrates. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations !

Microscreed in Marylebone

Yacco Maricard, the Japanese design house have opened a second shop in London to showcase their unfussy, classic clothing range, and we were delighted to be asked by Aldworth, James and Bond to provide a microscreed floor surface on top of a new timber substrate. 

Their space was totally transformed as the microscreed gives a natural stone effect (even though it was installed over timber boards) giving a distinctive yet unobtrusive look which sits perfectly with the rich colours of the clothing.

Floored Genius on C4’s Restoration Man

Microscreed Flooring

You can now catch the work of Floored Genius on Channel 4’s Restoration Man, as Architect George Clarke visits an old cow barn in Herefordshire that couple Marco and Kath Walker are converting into their dream home.

Reatoration Man - George Clarke 

The couple had bought the pair of Grade II listed 17th and 18th century cow barns from their local farmer in Wellington with big plans to create a bespoke home for their family.

Cracked Concrete ScreedWhen we first visited the development site in 2013 we found the floor in a bad state; the ground was uneven, unsightly and severely cracked in places.

Microscreed being Installed

Solacir Interiors’ Microscreed product is a ‘waxed concrete’ finish, which can be easily applied to existing concrete surfaces. It’s water based, rather than chemical based, with a natural-looking finish, so it’s perfect for a family environment. We decided that this would be the ideal choice for Marco and Kath’s ground floor.

The nature of the Microscreed product means that it is extremely versatile; it can be used across a multitude of existing surfaces as well as being available in a wide range of colours, tones and aspects, allowing Marco and Kath to select a personalised look especially for their home aesthetic. It won’t stain or tear and it is less prone to cracking than your traditional polished concrete finish.

The end result was a smooth, seamless flooring throughout the open-plan ground floor – maintaining the original feel of the building, but with a contemporary openness that Marco and Kath were delighted with:

Our new floor just looks incredible and goes so well with our open plan living space. From first contact with Floored Genius they came up with excellent advice before we decided on our colour scheme, took time to talk through samples, came up with ideas and also gave great after care service when all works were completed.

We would definitely recommend FlooredGenius and their stunning Microscreed floors – Marco Walker
