When you're ready for hardwood flooring

Hardwood flooring options

Once you've decided to go with hardwood floors, there are still several options to finish with before installation can begin. The first of these is species selection. The fact is, some species are hard and others are soft, with a wide variety in between. Harder species are more suited to heavy traffic and activity levels in your home, while softer varieties work better in low traffics spaces. Your flooring specialist will be able to help you figure out exactly which is best for you. The next decision concerns stain color, and again, you have quite an array of options. First, you can decide whether you want pre-stained or site-stained services. While pre-stained wood gives you a quicker install, site-stained offers far more stain color options. It’s important to pick the stain color you're going to enjoy for at least the next two or three decades, but this is something that can be changed when you're ready for your first refinishing project. Finally, you’ll get to choose the perfect finish to round out the perfect look for your floors. A waxed, glossy finish is a common choice for many homeowners, but there are plenty others to choose from. For instance, a hand scraped, distressed, or vintage finish are gaining popularity, as they work to hide the signs of everyday wear and tear. This can also give you more time before a refinishing is necessary, which can save you money in the end.
