The South Beckons via Balham

The High Street was once part of Stane Street – the Roman road to Chichester. Despite some large houses to the south around the commons, the area only really developed with the building of the Station in 1856.

​The 1930’s Du Cane Court, built in impressive Art Deco style, is notable in being the largest block of flats in Europe built for private – as opposed to social housing – use.The area has experienced an upsurge in popularity and is now noted for its vibrant cultural diversity.

Among famous people born in Balham are Margaret Rutherford, BBC carpenter turned writer of ‘Only Fools and Horses’, John Sullivan and Basil Brush’s sidekick, ‘ Mr Derek’ Fawlds.

Another son of Balham, cricketer, Percy Fender, former Surrey captain and England all-rounder, scored a 35 minute century in 1920 – still the fastest on record (in non-contrived circumstances).

Tips for Dying Your Hardwood Floor

Dying a floor can create a stunning range of aesthetic effects, like turning it jet black or seamlessly matching other flooring in the house, but it’s not an easy process. Dye dries extremely quickly so there’s plenty of opportunity to make mistakes, meaning you’ll have to start the floor sanding and finishing process again. Here’s how to avoid overlap lines and stop marks and create a stunning dyed floor.

Dye vs stain

Unlike a pigmented stain, a dye can be used repeatedly until your floorboards are the desired level of darkness. Dye also penetrates the wood evenly, unlike stain, so there are no visible blotches and you’ll create a consistent effect across the floor. Dye is also transparent, so if you want to showcase the grain of the wood it’s a smart choice.

Before you start

You’ll need to hire your sanding equipment – dust free sanding equipment makes clean up far easier – and strip the old finish from the floor back to the raw wood. Pay particular attention to the edges and corners and make sure that, when hardwood floor sanding, you decide on a grit sequence and stick to it as otherwise you run the risk of creating swirl marks that will really stand out when you come to dye and finish the floor.

Keep your sanding machine moving at all times and don’t rush – move slowly and methodically across the floor following the line of the grain of the wood. Vacuum thoroughly between each sanding as particles of dust can ruin the finish.

Application tips for the perfect dye job

Your technique needs to be spot on when working with dye, as it’s probably the most unforgiving way to finish your flooring.

  • Use a pad applicator across the entire floor and work with the grain in order to minimise overlap lines.
  • Cut your applicator pad to the exact width of two/three boards so you minimise overlap lines.
  • Use long strokes to apply the dye so you don’t get a build up in various spots.
  • Saturate your pad with dye but don’t soak it so you end up with build up marks.

The more coats you add, the darker the finished effect and the less any overlap lines will show, but work fast to even out any pools of dye for the perfect finish.
