Keeping It Real…
The one MUST Project Before You Move In
The bathroom is pink; the wallpaper is circa 1978; the kids’ bedrooms are all carpeted…white. Your list of projects is two pages long before you even have keys to the front door.

Keeping It Real…The one MUST Project Before You Move InThe bathroom is pink; the wallpaper is circa 1978; the kids’ bedrooms are all carpeted…white. Your list of projects is two pages long before you even have keys to the front door. Pace yourself. You’ll soon learn that tackling projects over time is a good thing. There’s a saying, “You need to live in a house for a while before you understand how it works.” People say that for a reason. You might THINK you know what you want to do with a house, but time will give you a chance to see better options. Except for floors. If your floors are scratched, stained, or otherwise damaged, refinishing is a no-brainer. But what if the floors are in good shape -- but you hate the orange color? It’s YOUR home….your personal taste - change them! Because once a house is full of furniture and a family, refinishing floors becomes a huge pain in the ###. Make the time, even if it means pushing back your move in date and keeping all your furniture on a truck for a few days. Find the money even if it means holding off on that new TV, sectional, lawnmower or swingset. Live with the pink bathroom for a year! Floor! This is the project to do now. Twelve years after moving in to my home and I’m still kicking myself for not refinishing my floors when I had the chance. http://www.hoskinghardwood.com/uploads/pages/Articles/article_oilfinish2.jpgRemember that refinishing a floor will make your floor ITS most beautiful…but it won’t turn it into something that it isn’t. It won’t change plank width or wood grain. If your floor is uneven, it will still be uneven. When working with an existing wood floor, your color options will be somewhat limited too. A new finish won’t transform an oak floor into mahogany. And it’s extremely difficult to apply a dark stain to maple. Keep all of this in mind and for the best results, hire a professional.photo: http://maranathahardwood.comPhotos: Houzz.com
