The perfect hardwood floors for your home

Hardwood flooring is elegant, timeless, and truly sought-after by many homeowners today. The fact that it has one of the longest lifespans in the flooring industry certainly helps create that appeal, but there’s far more to the material than that. It’s durable in most every situation, looks great even through various trend changes, and is easier to care for and maintain than you might think. Overall, it could be the best decision you make for your home this year, especially since it’s likely to be the last floor covering you ever need.

Hardwood flooring offers options

To get started on your own hardwood flooring adventure, you’ll need to discuss species types and settle on one you prefer. These species are rated from soft to hard and if your home is on the more active side, you’ll want a harder species. This helps your flooring to reach its proposed lifespan by maintaining that it doesn’t wear out long before its time. You’ll quickly appreciate a harder species choice and be content with the outcome.

Personalize your floors

You’ll also be able to choose a perfect stain color, which can help to match your existing decor. A finish is the final choice and gives your hardwood flooring a personalized look. For instance, a wire brushed, hand scraped, or distressed finish can add depth of character to your floors while providing great benefits as well. These finishes can actually hide signs of wear, making your floors look better for longer.

It should be noted that hardwood flooring must be given ample time, roughly 24 to 72 hours, to acclimate to your environment before installation can begin. Also, it should never be installed in below-grade spaces such as basements.
