Before anything else, it is important that you already have an idea on the finish product that you want to have on your floor. What color do you want it to be? How glossy do you want it? These are just a few of the things that you should have already thought of before going for the finishing procedure.

After deciding and settling what to go for, here are the processes that are done to have a hassle free and good floor finishing in your bedroom:
This process is very appropriate to smoothen out the surface of your wooden floor room. Also, you might want to consider first removing everything inside the room so that you will not be troubled of cleaning from dusts created by sanding.

The best way to get rid of airborne dusts that come from sanding a wooden floor is through the use of a vacuum cleaner. It is in this way that the dusts wouldn’t circulate in the air and land back to the floor over again.
Since part of finish your bedroom floor is changing the color, after sanding and cleaning up the dusts, it is now ready to be stained with the color of your choice.
It is best to use some protective coating for any newly stained floor so as to preserve its color for some time. Polyurethane is the best thing to do the job. For a much preserved result, it is best to do two coats wherein the interval of the coating is overnight. As much as possible, decide to put coating last on the area where traffic or frequent passing is unavoidable.
