In The Terrace, with its Georgian Mansions of 1720, Barnes boasts some of London’s earliest riverside dwellings. Less conventional is the ‘Henry Boot’ estate built during the housing boom following the First World War. Constructed from reinforced concrete columns, the houses - 50,000 in total throughout the country - were subsequently found to be structurally unsound.
Such economies were founded on a shortage of bricks, demonstrating the value of these traditional materials. Timber also qualifies as a reliable building component, with wooden floors retaining their popularity. They offer a practical surface combined with natural beauty – one that can withstand the pressure of feet or act as a showpiece feature.
In buildings old and new - from cafes, galleries and schools to gyms, offices and domestic buildings - they are easy to maintain and keep clean. Yet time and wear can lead to a tired appearance, unsightly marks or worse damage. So make sure your floor continues to look the part. Call on a professional Barnes floor sanding company.

Useful facts about Barnes:
Barnes is a district in south-west London, England, within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is located around 5.8 miles (9.3 km) west south-west of Charing Cross in a loop of the River Thames, with Hammersmith Bridge at the north end. Barnes has a number of 18th- and 19th-century buildings of exceptional quality, and is often noted for its historic village area centred on Barnes Pond, forming the Barnes Village conservation area.
Some of the oldest riverside housing in London is to be found on The Terrace, a road lined with Georgian mansions which runs along the west bend of the river. Construction of these mansions began as early as 1720. Gustav Holst and Ninette de Valois lived in houses on this stretch, both of which have corresponding blue plaques. The Terrace also has an original red brick police station, built in 1891. It has been remodelled as apartments but still preserves the original features.
A popular cultural attraction is the former Olympic Studios on Church Road, soon to be Barnes's independent local cinema once again. Moved from central London in 1966, the studios played host to many of rock and pop's greatest stars down the decades, from the Beatles, who recorded the original tracks of "All You Need Is Love" in Barnes, to the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Queen, Eric Clapton, Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Nilsson, the Verve, Massive Attack, Duran Duran, Coldplay, Madonna and Björk.
