Livingroom Floor Transformation

As part of the New Years I've home improvements, I opted to get my living room floors sanded. They have always irked me,  and I regret not getting them sanding before all furniture went in.


A friend of mine recommended a company called AKL flooring who did hers. After seeing the results it was worth it. The only problem was getting the floors done when the boyfriend was away. I was planning not to go to Brighton this year at the end of May. Brighton's allure was too much to resist. I doubt we can afford a proper holiday this year.  Fortuitously, the Boyfriend had a night away with his union comrades in arms in Mid February, which coincide with my days off.  I got the men booked in.

On Thursday night we managed to get all the furniture out the living room, ( something I hope to never do again.

The team arrived promptly at nine and started immediately even after an hour of work I was shocked at the difference of the floor. It far brighter and airier. Surprisingly, the team were finished within four hours this includes prep, sanding and four coats of varnishes  They were packed away by 1:30. There was some dust but not as much as I had anticipated. They left everything immaculate condition. I paid for the floor, which I couldn't believe the price. £270.   I've also planned to get the guys back into the hallway which they quoted £250 .They explained to the difficult nature the floors board will need to be done with a hand sander. 

I forgot to take a before photo I found these from a couple of years ago.  These were the best examples, I could find, lol. Overall, the floor looks crap.

I repainted all the walls as the paint looked patchy in some area its made a huge a difference. Also, I've been enjoying having less clutter around its allowed me to clear and out some of the clutter. This includes my college of pictures where I've put my favourites on the wall.

  4. It looks lovely! I had that exact purple colour in my bedroom when I lived at my mom, it's so pretty :D Also decluttering is life <3 I have been more and more into that the past few years and it feels so good having less garbage around that I don't really need.

    1. Thanks. That interesting about your bedroom.

      I'm not sure if it's the time of year, I always like to have a good spring clean and get rid of clutter. I love the feeling of getting rid of bags clutter feels, so up lifting.

  6. What a difference and what an incredible price! We only have one carpet in the sunroom now (it gets really cold in there in the winter) but I'd never go back to carpets again. Wood floors are so much easier to keep clean.

    1. Thanks I have carpet in my bedroom as the wooden boards weren't great it nice and toasty in the morning's. I totally agree I prefer wooden floors definitely much easier to clean.

      I'm still surprised at the huge difference it's made to the sitting room.
