Exclusive and affluent, the area remains fit for Royalty, as Kensington palace, first acquired by William 111, has long been a residence for royal relations, such as the late Princess Margaret. Outside, its orangery is notable, while Wren was busy on the interior with its wooden galleries and famous staircase. The famous wood-carver Grinling Gibbons also made several decorative contributions.
Other dwellings may be occupied by commoners but still outstrip the top council tax bands, with many of the Victorian and Georgian terraces enjoying 4-6 floors. With the past 300 year tradition of English building celebrated in Kensington, the use of timber remains a durable constant. Wooden floors, in particular, are still popular for their natural beauty and hard-wearing properties. Hygienic and easy to maintain, they are adaptable for use in a wide range of settings.
Despite sound maintenance, time and feet can remove their shine, with a shabby appearance possibly leading to more serious damage. Keep your floors at their top level of performance with the services of a Kensington's professional floor sanding company.
After repairs to the timber, our sanding machines remove the old layers of sealant - paint and varnish - fromthe surface, whether hardwood boards or parquet blocks. The smooth bare finish is then ready for fresh protective layers of lacquer, wax or oil.
Dust and disruption is minimal with the efficient collection systems of our sanding machines. And if you wish, we can work overnight or at weekends, to minimise any loss of custom or business.
We specialise in period floors, as in parquet flooring restoration. By sourcing matching blocks from reclaimed timber suppliers, we ensure you will get an authentic match.

Did you know about Kensington?
Kensington is a town and district of west and central London, England, within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Its commercial heart is Kensington High Street. This affluent and densely populated area contains the well-known museum district of South Kensington. To the north, Kensington is bordered by Notting Hill; to the east, by Brompton and Knightsbridge; to the south, by Chelsea and Earl's Court; and to the west, by Hammersmith and Shepherd's Bush.
The focus of the area is Kensington High Street, a busy commercial centre with many shops, typically upmarket. The street was declared London's second best shopping street in February 2005 thanks to its range and number of shops. However since October 2008 the street has faced competition from the Westfield shopping centre at White City. The heritage bus service on route 9, using Routemasters, was extended to Kensington High Street in November 2010 at the Council's urging, partly to boost the number of visitors to the High Street.
Kensington is, in general, an extremely affluent area, a trait that it now shares with its neighbour to the south, Chelsea. The area has some of London's most expensive streets and garden squares, including Edwardes Square, Earls Terrace – an exclusive redevelopment of Georgian Houses, The Phillimores, and Wycombe Square – a new build development done to a very high standard. In early 2007, houses sold in Upper Phillimore Gardens for in excess of £20 million. Additionally, most neighbouring districts are regarded as exclusive residential areas, including Knightsbridge and Brompton to the east and the nearest parts of Notting Hill to the north. To the west is the less affluent but up-and-coming area of Earl's Court.
