Restoration your wood floor

Your flooring is one of the most important things in your home. It’s usually the first thing you and your visitors see when crossing the doorstep of your property. That’s why it’s so crucial to spend special attention to the flooring when redecorating your home in London on a budget!

You  will start with the most extravagant flooring technique – decoupage! Basically, decoupaging different surfaces means you choose good looking sheets of paper, cut them in pieces of different size, arrange and glue them down the flooring surface with a special adhesive for decoupage, cover the flooring with layer/s of decoupage lacquer and wait. Wait until the finish is completely dry.

Hardwood Floor Sanding

The Best Ways to Clean Hardwood Floors

-Prep your floor for cleaning by sweeping or dust-mopping to get rid of large particles of dirt and debris.
-Use a pH neutral cleaner that will be gentle on your hardwood floors.
-Use a fine spray mist to clean your floor in sections. Avoid putting too much liquid on your floors.
-Use a microfiber mop to clean. Traditional mops can work, but they can leave excess water on your floors.
-Skip using white vinegar and water to clean your floors. Using a specially formulated hardwood floor care cleaner is a smart way to maintain the beauty and look of your floors.

But, at all events, one thing we have in our power — the doing without machine ornament and cast-iron work. All the stamped metals, and artificial stones, and imitation woods and bronzes, over the invention of which we hear daily exultation — all the short, and cheap, and easy ways of doing that whose difficulty is its honour — are just so many new obstacles in our already encumbered road. They will not make one of us happier or wiser — they will extend neither the pride of judgment nor the privilege of enjoyment. They will only make us shallower in our understandings, colder in our hearts, and feebler in our wits. And most justly. For we are not sent into this world to do any thing into which we cannot put our hearts. We have certain work to do for our bread, and that is to be done strenuously; other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily: neither is to be done by halves and shifts, but with a will; and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all. ~John Ruskin, "The Lamp of Life," The Seven Lamps of Architecture, 1849
