Why You Should Have Your Timber Floor Installed Before You Paint - And Not the Other Way Around
If you're giving one of your rooms a total makeover by renovating it from scratch, the order in which you complete the different tasks is important. For people getting a new timber floor installed, their instinct is often to paint the walls first. This seems logical because you don't want to risk getting paint on your brand new wooden flooring. In fact, it's usually better to do it the other way around, putting down your new floor prior to getting the paintbrush out.
