Hi Brendino1967, The flooring is an engineered German Oak parquet with a natural varnish.

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much. When you say "Natural Varnish" you mean water based? Do you know what brand of varnish was used. It is perfect.

Shawn Gauthier added this to Straight-Up Advice for Corner Spaces
There are a few corners in your home that might have gone unnoticed, like the one where the underside of your stairs meets a wall. This could be the perfect place to incorporate a small home office area.

AMH Interiors added this to Unleash The Architectural Potential In Your Space
October 23, 2014
3. TRANSFORM YOUR SPACE BY MINIMISING THE ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS- While replacing the spindles in this staircase with glass a new architectural detail has been created-the space under the staircase becomes the focal point. Sometimes you may need to eliminate some of the architectural details especially if you are looking to achieve a contemporary look.

Reclaim every niche Space below a staircase can easily be transformed into an occasional office area without intruding on the rest of the room. Choose a stylish low chair that can be turned in towards the room as an extra seat when the office isn’t in use. Continue the shelves as high as they will go to create as much storage as possible – then just add a sleek laptop to make it ready for work.
