The most popular contemporary wooden doors are those in softwood or solid or veneered hardwood. They may have clear or translucent glass panels to allow light to spill from room to room. Others are made from plywood in a hollow box construction or from a composite-board material, which provides a perfectly smooth base for painted finish and can be cut into unconventional shapes. Metal frames have been a feature of external doors since the 1930s, and a few pioneering manufacturers are still in existence today, producing metal door and window frames in similar patterns to the originals, for those renovating Moderne houses or adopting that style.
Terracotta floors can give a great first impression but their drawback is that they take a large amount of time to maintain to a high standard. This is because Terracotta on the whole is a porous material and as a result of Terracotta being porous dirt can easily build up on its surface making it hard to keep clean. Even worse basic cleaners such as bleach can`t be used to remove this build up as they will damage the Terracotta. Floor polishers however do not use heavy cleaning chemicals and can lift the grime out of the flooring taking the hassle out of cleaning and maintaining your Terracotta flooring.
