The hallway

The very first time we where in our house we found remains of a terrazzo floor under layers of carpet in our hallway. One of the features that we wish to restore. Even though the hallway was not first on our list to start with. We could not resist the temptation to see what was left of the terrazzo floor.

It was a disappointment to find out that there where carpet tiles glued on top of the terrazzo floor. The baseboard was painted in yellow. With water, soap, glass scraper and strong determination we started to scratch off the carpet and paint.

We found a beautiful pattern in the floor with a few characteristic cracks. Unfortunately there is also a bit missing. The previous owners drilled a bit of the baseboard out. We have made a good start in renovating the hallway. The next step will be to polish the terrazzo floor.
