Another temporary fix is to tack on some wood effect wallpaper
or how about doing a fabric lining similar to a marquee? I was in a kitchen of a country house where they had hidden the ceiling (if there actually was one!) with gathered fabric draped help up by a pole running down the middles...
How about planing off a thin layer of wood? That would not create dust.
The disposable type yellow window scrapers that have a sharp blade in from Wickes or Brewers are cheap are ok at shaving off bits of wood. You could experiment on a patch first. The finish would be a bit rough though.
I am soon to recoat doors and windows to keep the natural wooden look (ie not paint)
Sadolin calls their products "woodstain"
How does that differ from "varnish" ??
How can i tell what is already coating the windows or doors.
What would happen if I was to recoat sadolin woodstain...
I have a wooden garage door with a natural wood varnish / woodstain finish
Only the bottom edge has started flaking
What prep do you recommend to do an adequate job
i.e. do i need to strip back to wood all over or just make the flaky bit sound, key the rest and recoat?
Thanks for the info.
Damp will not be an issue as its not ground floor.
Not sure how even we will be able to get the floor; its a victorian building. The current kitchen units are not very level but the installation was terrible. So we'll see when it all comes out.
Does the MflorClick...
Im using a builder to refit the kitchen; he is very good at refurbs. Lovely tiling in my bathroom. Trained in joinery but good at most trades
Wasn't sure whether to get a specilaist for the floor or not
Is that MflorLock any good?
Replacing an old T&G pine floor with vinyl around units, in a kitchen.
I still would like a wood floor effect that is water resistant.
I have been recommended Kardean or Amtico.
Doing some research, I saw someone said for Amtico you are meant to strip it after laying and apply...
My electric shower is becoming somewhat unreliable.
Suddenly mid shower it will start to get very hot
Or suddenly the pressure drops off
Can these things be fixed or is it just time to replace it?
When we had underfloor heating put in the concrete screed, we deliberately avoided the kitchen unit area directly underneath
a) we did not want to heat the wooden units and cause unecessary stress on the wood
b) Did not want the contents of the cupboards to be heated unnecessarily; this...
In my cosy one bed victorian top floor flat i have a kitchen about 13ft x 11ft. The kitchen is a linear one down just one side of the wall, giving a reasonable living space in the rest of the room with a fireplace.
I like this concept for maximum flexibility of the room; so its not just a...
These are sound suggestions but it would grieve me to spend the extra on the ply or boarding if it had to be ripped up in a years time.
I could rip up the T&G and put the ply down which could be tiled over later when the kitchen is done "properly" and just have the cheapest vinyl until then...
