People don’t really pay attention to details, but somehow we all know that that is where the devil lays. Personally I like to take on house touring every time I feel like I need to change something in my house. It is a cheap way to understand what other people like to see in a house, and to apply it at home. Recently I found out about floor sanding, and I decided to give you and idea as well.
The other day I toured a house built in the 70s, and I must tell you it was the nest one, so far. It had floors, like none other. At first, I didn’t know what they were made of, but as soon as I asked to real state agent I found out they were real walnut floors. For those of you that don’t know what walnut is, it is a dark (at a first sight it looks unnaturally dark colored) wood, that is the result of the walnut tree. They caught my eye because they were literally shining in the dusky light coming in through the windows.
I asked the real estate agent why it shines like this, especially if it’s in an old house, was it replaced, or is it the original floor. Turns out, it was the original floor and it shined so beautifully because they had floor sanding, at first I thought what is that? What is floor sanding? But I was a bit ashamed to ask the real estate agent again, so when I went back home I looked it up on the internet. This process of sanding the floors uses small grains of sand, pushed against the surface of the floor and is remove all impurities. Technically it’s like a face scrub, except is made on floors. This way the revive the wood, or the stone, and make it shine again. It seemed like a good solution to replacing your floors, especially if you have the luck of having wooden floors.
The sad thing is I like in flat, and my floors are all concrete. Too bad I cannot apply this idea in my house, just yet. Maybe when I will buy a bigger house, I will be able to sand my floors.
