We were hoping to sand our parquet floor in the hall and dining room, however we had forgot that there is tiles where the fireplace once was :cry:
Now suggestions include polish the tiles and have a large floral arrangement there???
Put a rug - wouldn't look good against the wall?
When I suggested to OH about taking up tiles and putting some new parquet flooring he said you would have to do the whole floor again. Is there anything else someone could suggest - was so looking forward to not having to lay carpet again.
A word of caution here about lifting blocks from other areas. They will probably be stuck down with bitumen which forms a Damp Proof Membrane. Lifting old blocks almost always damages this DPM.
An alternate solution would be to source old blocks to replace the tiles, sand the whole floor and stain it to match
