Posted on July 24, 2023

Floor Sanding Blogs

Welcome back to the Daily Grind, the Mr Sander®’ regular spot for sharing the latest news, ideas, how-tos and inspirations from the online flooring world. We keep our eyes peeled each month for great posts on all things flooring, from choosing the perfect wood to branching out with bathroom flooring – the ideal monthly roundup for everyone from home improvement addicts to busy painters and decorators.

This February: Discover five cool flooring ideas which will instantly transform any bathroom, find out why grey and white flooring is soaring in popularity, plus learn why size matters when it comes to floorboard width.

Bathroom Flooring Made Beautiful


The very best bathrooms should be all about luxuriousness and relaxation. After long, hard days, this space should feel like a haven; before nights out, it should feel like a glamorous day spa. But bathrooms are often some of the trickiest spaces in your home to decorate, with all sorts of appliances and fittings which are difficult and costly to update and change regularly.

One aspect of any bathroom that can significantly impact is its flooring. Tired out carpet or lino is an instant drain on any bathroom, making any home improvements look less than lovely, no matter how inspired. However, a good quality, beautiful bathroom floor offers this space an instant facelift, making it feel more luxurious almost immediately. And there are different ways to create this effect which you can tailor to suit your style. We love this blog from Victoria Plum as a starting point – take a peek and get inspired!

Grey & White are the New Black


Like keeping up with the latest interior design trends? This blog from Factory Direct Flooring has some important news for you: sales of grey and white flooring are booming as thousands of homeowners discover this brilliantly versatile, neutral look which works well with – well – just about any décor (perfect for design lovers who like to chop and change their interior styles). From vinyl and laminates to engineered wood and tiling, the popularity of these shades is soaring. Read more and jump on the bandwagon!

Size Matters: Which Width?


When installing a real wood floor, you may mull over the wood type, the wood colour, and the wood stain you will use. In most cases, you probably won’t give the width of the wood much thought. Yet the width of wood floorboards can make a big difference to the appearance of the finished product – and your home – making it appear bigger, smaller, wider, you name it! This helpful blog from Peak Wood has indispensable advice (and handy diagrams!) to help you make the right choice.

Did you consider your floorboard width when you installed your wood floor? Which of Victoria Plum’s bathroom flooring picks is your favourite? Have your say below.
