Uipkes Wood Flooring
Wood is alive, sustainable and provides a warm atmosphere in every home. It’s a remarkable product of nature that is easy to work with and stimulates all the senses. The smell, sound, unique wood drawing and the warm feeling have made wood a very popular material to manufacture houses, furniture and floors for centuries. Wood is, in addition to wool and cork, one of the few sustainable and recyclable raw materials that are suitable for use as a floor covering. Wooden floors are a feast for the eyes, will last a lifetime and only become more beautiful over the years. If desired, they can always be sanded and finished again.
Wooden floors bring the space and tranquility of nature into your interior and give your room a warm and chic character that is unique compared to other types of floor coverings. By playing with the type of wood, color finish, installation pattern and plank widths, you can create custom wooden floors that match the atmosphere you want to create in your home. The possibilities are endless and on our website you can see many examples of wooden floors for inspiration.

Wooden floors on underfloor heating?
Underfloor heating is a pleasure and a warming experience, especially in combination with the natural feeling of wood. Fortunately, wooden floors and underfloor heating go well together for years. Uipkes specializes in laying beautiful wooden floors on underfloor heating or floor cooling. Feel free to choose between the different installation patterns, colors and widths.
Wooden floors can be installed in different installation patterns. We can install wooden floors in 17 different patterns. A special pattern is the chevron pattern. The floor parts are installed at an angle of 45° or 60° and connect at the top. This creates a so-called 'sergeant stripe' that gives an authentic look to the floor. Chevron wooden floors really give every room a refined and elegant look.
The wooden floor in herringbone pattern is an absolute classic, but with a modern twist. By using wide planks, the herringbone floor gets a whole new look and feel. With a wooden herringbone floor, planks are placed against each other at an angle of 90 degrees, creating a motif that resembles a herringbone. By varying the color and plank widths, you can make the floor pattern stand out less in a room, or, on the contrary, make it more present in a living space. An oak herringbone parquet floor can also be combined well with underfloor heating.
Wooden plank floors are modern and timeless and one of the oldest types of floor coverings in existence. This installation pattern is powerful because of its simplicity, so that more attention is drawn towards the beauty of the wood drawings. That is why this is the most well-known and applied pattern for wooden floors and parquet. Extra wide wooden floorboards make the plank floor appear majestic and modern.

Yes, you can also install a wooden floor in the bathroom! An oak engineered wood floor finished with oil can be used in the bathroom to create beautiful transitions. Parquet floors hardly shrink or expand on contact with water or high humidity compared to solid wood floors. In this way you can also apply the natural feeling of wooden floors in special rooms such as the bathroom.
The installation of a wooden floor in the kitchen and living room ensures unity in design. The kitchen floor is a frequently used part of the house, so you have to take the additional maintenance into account. Our wooden floors are resistant to water, coffee, cola, beer and wine and therefore pose no unnecessary risk. Regular vacuuming and mopping with wooden floor soap is enough to keep the kitchen floor in top condition.
The living room is often the largest room in a home. Wooden floors determine the atmosphere and character in the living room and adjacent rooms, such as the kitchen and hall. You can also extend wooden floors to the other rooms to add even more unity and tranquility to the design.
The installation pattern and color of the wooden floors in the living room should match the style of the interior in order to create harmony. With 90 handmade colours, 17 patterns and various plank sizes, you can design your own exclusive wooden floors at Uipkes and also have them installed by our experienced parquet fitters.
Can you put a wooden floor in an apartment? Yes, of course! In some cases you are bound by the noise standard that is set by the Owners' Association or by the relevant housing cooperative. We help you so that you meet their standards. We can install a wooden floor in your apartment without any problems, because we use a subfloor and floating installation technique that can reduce impact noise by 11 dB.
In recent years, Uipkes has built up extensive experience in managing and executing large wood flooring projects in offices, shops and restaurants in various cities in The Netherlands and abroad.
We realize these projects in collaboration with renowned interior architects and project developers who have strict requirements regarding delivery, quality, planning and execution.
