You must place a 10% deposit of the house’s purchase price if you want to reserve the house. Normally, the deposit is about $3,000 euros and above. The higher the cost of the apartment, the more deposits you have to pay. The rest can be paid monthly after you secure a mortgage from the bank. For off plan properties, you are expected to pay a deposit of about 30% of the purchase price.
Chair railing and wainscoting add architectural interest to a room. Wainscoting is wooden paneling that lines the lower part of the walls of a room and as we have seen can take many different forms. To some, the wainscoting and chair rail simply serve a function – protecting the wall. To me, both of these serve to make a room greet you with a hug. Whatever you choose for an architectural interest, do your research and have a concept to follow. This will allow you to carefully craft a room that will hug you and your family for many years to come.
Newer poured concrete will require less stain than older floors, but in general, a gallon of water added to one gallon of stain will cover around 350-400 square feet.

Be careful to protect yourself from spillage, drips and fumes from the acid stain, and follow the manufacturer’s precautions. Ventilation is always a good idea.
