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.
Ceramic and quarried tile floors. 9 times out of 10 ceramic and quarried tile does not require much in the way of cleaning, in fact a simple mop will be just as good. The problem with tiles arises when after a while they start to look dull. The reason that tiles start looking dull is down to scratches appearing on their surface as their protective layer over time starts breaking down. This break down in the protective layer allows dirt to start accumulating in these scratches. This is where you will need an industrial polisher, or buffer, as these types of floor cleaners will remove the scratches from the tile, and thus the dirt with them, returning your tiles back to looking as if they have just been laid. The other area that can make your tiled flooring look dull and uninviting is not the tiles themselves as the tiles are not naturally porous and therefore don`t stain easily without scratches in them, but the grout used to secure them. This grout on the other hand is extremely porous and can be easily stained.
