The floor crowns the cosy atmosphere

Since 2016 he has lived on his own island in the Stockholm inner archipelago. The only way there is by a private bridge. He really appreciates the sea and the privacy. And when he feels like it, it is only 30 minutes to Stureplan. Anyway, it’s his floor we came here to talk about.

Pelle Magnusson works daily with land and contracting. His love of flooring has evolved over the years. He blames his sister-in-law for getting in touch with Kullaberg Flooring.

“She lives in the south of Sweden and has a Kullaberg floor in her house. It intrigued us enough to book a meeting with Fredrik. We had the basic idea, but Fredrik took it further and designed the floor layout.”

The result is a floor perfect for their home, a new and modern archipelago style house.

Massivt plankgolv i en inomhusmillö

Maximum possible wow factor

In the hall, a wedge-shaped plank floor was installed, using the shape of the original planks. Upstairs a visible seam ship floor was laid. But the detail that perhaps attracts the most attention is the rounded design border separating the floors and the stairs.

“A real craftsmanship by Fredrik at Kullaberg, he is really good at carpentry. Maximum possible wow factor!”

The floor is originally primed with clear hard wax oil.

“It’s really nice. And practical.”

Tasteful, yet not flashy

All floors are carefully chosen to fit the character of the house. The holistic approach is important to Pelle.

– I want it to be tasteful, yet not flashy. With a good choice of material, all genuine and functional. We have, for example, a two tonne-cast iron staircase and a fireplace that can be seen from three directions.

The look and feel of a floor is of course important, but it must also be nice to walk on. Pelle recognises this and says that he likes to walk barefoot on the soft wooden floor. A floor of course supplied with underfloor heating.

A personal touch

The first meeting with Fredrik was somewhat crucial as they chose the floor.

– We were down in Skåne, taking a chance that Fredrik might be home, but we only got to meet his very nice mother. A few days later we went back and met Fredrik. We brought drawings, that we later jointly developed with him. Everything seemed very personal. Just like the solution on the flooring that we ended up with it.

Choice of flooring

Pelle is happy to share his experiences when it comes to choosing a floor.

“Be thorough, read up on floors or consult Fredrik when it comes to anything from choosing floor to laying it. It also feels safe to have Fredrik in the project. He is passionate about the craft, is knowledgeable and genuinely committed. And even though a nice floor may cost a little more, you also get a lot more.”

Pelle also wants to take the opportunity to suggest something to Fredrik and Kullaberg Flooring.

“You should open a showroom so that more people can see and experience the wonderful floors, the craft and all the wonderful stories about forests, trees, and lumber.”
