I'm no pro but from my experience of renovating my house I would say it's always going to be better and easier to do it with an empty room (no cabinets). You can do the whole process of sanding and finishing in a weekend. So if you feasibly can I would do the floor first with the most amount of space available.
Beg someone on here with a van to go pick it up with you and offer them a McDonalds breakfast as a thank you. Usually works for me*.
*never actually tried it.
We bought a ceiling shade a few weeks back.
It was pretty flawless on their part and I get the feeling their post sale would be the same.
Got a plumber coming round moving some pipes/rad on my ground floor which is concrete/screed.
I'm knocking it out around where he's going to work but I'm wondering what mix I should use to fill it all back in? What I'm knocking out seems pretty sandy.
I have a few other places that need filling and I'll be laying some self leveling compound afterwards to then put parquet down.
You can see some areas where the lacquer didn't really take which I've been told is probably where something oil based was spilled and it's soaked deep in the wood.
I didn't find sanding and lacquering our floors that bad at all. It was just very messy. That wood dust just stuck to the walls. Mine were in pretty good condition though (and not old, c.1959) and any breaks, splits, and blemishes are just part of the history. I replaced a few lengths and some small sections too.
Don't forget to use appropriate nails,
I used this stuff for lacquer,
Might find it here.
Edit: Middleton looks close.
No idea on the actual bulb passed an internet search but 65000k is daylight.
