We just finished working on the hardwood floors in another house that will soon be put on the market in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle. We refinished the entire house with the exception of the bathroom and kitchen. The main level of the house had Oak hardwoods, the second level was a mix of red and white Oak and the stairs were Fir. The owners decided to go with the traditional Swedish Finish. The finished floors are absolutely beautiful and add so much polish and flow to the house. See below for a glimpse of some of the before and after shots. More photos can be seen on our gallery of work page near the end of the gallery.
This Spring we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with an experienced, talented and smart local interior designer, Lisa Lucas of Lisa Lucas Design. Lisa specializes in interior design and home staging in the greater Seattle area. She creates interiors that sell.
Planeta Works has refinished the hardwoods in several of the homes Lisa has polished before putting on the market with amazing results. Each house on which we worked sold within days and for well above the asking price. According to Lisa, our work refinishing the floors was a major component in not only selling these houses quickly but for also sending them into a bidding war. Every home seller’s dream scenario!
Refinishing your hardwood flooring will always add value to your home. If you are thinking of selling your home and your hardwoods could use some love, or if you have hardwoods under carpet, it’s well worth the small investment and efforts to get them refinished. Hardwood flooring, especially hardwoods in good condition, will always enrich any space and appeal to home buyers.
Our latest clients (who also happen to be very talented architects) asked us to help get their very cool and hip mid-century modern home in north Seattle ready to put on the market. We refinished the red and white oak hardwood flooring in their living room, dining room, kitchen and hallway. Because they have children and are on a time line to get the house on the market, they choose to use a waterborne finish on the floors which is less toxic and stinky. The results are stunning. See some before and after photos below. Check out more photos and the full listing for this home sold by Tanya Thackeray Wilson for 360 Modern, here.
