While you could perhaps move stuff from one side of the room to the other while doing the sanding, it is much better if the room is cleared completely. This should include soft furnishings and furniture, plus any existing floor coverings such as carpets, underlay and grippers. Any screws or nails that are protruding from the floorboards will also need to be removed or punched below the surface.

To get the sort of professional finish that you are looking for it will almost certainly be necessary to do more than simply sand down your floorboards and give them a coat of varnish. There are bound to be some minor imperfections such as splits, nail holes, screw holes and cracks, and there may even be some larger repairs needed where sections of floorboard are missing or damaged. These should all be repaired to the best possible standard, filled with wood filler and given a final sanding. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.

When all this has been completed the floor can be finished to your taste with a hard wearing varnish. However, before this is done it is advisable to give the floor at least one coat of a good quality oil based sealer such as Liberon, which helps to bring out the wood's natural colour, provides a good base for the varnish, and offers added protection against scratches and stains.
