What to Consider When Choosing Hardwood Floors
The color in hardwood flooring ranges from light to dark. Lighter floors tend to work well in contemporary settings while darker floors tend to work well in more traditional settings. Dark hardwood floors have been very popular in the last few years, but your flooring should really match up to your existing furnishings before simply following the latest trend. Overall, hardwood floors never go out of style.
The grain variations that are naturally present in hardwood floors help determine its “personality.” Dramatic grain promotes a rustic feel for traditional settings and light graining has a sleek, contemporary look.
- Wood Species
Popular choices for hardwood flooring include oak, maple and cherry flooring. You can also choose from walnut, ash and mahogany. For something more exotic, opt for teak, jarrah or mesquite.
If you choose to go with a finished floor, you will also have to decide on which type of sheen you’d like. Sheen measures how shiny the floor will be. You can choose from matte, satin, semi-gloss or glossy (which is the shiniest). Often left out of decision-making, the level of shine on floors does make a big impact on its appearance and maintenance requirements.
The two main choices are solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Solid planks are made to last for years, while engineered planks are designed to withstand higher levels of humidity (which means they can go in some rooms where solid wood can’t go).
Why Choose Hardwood Flooring?
There are a number of benefits and advantages to installing hardwood floors in your home or office. One of the top reasons people want hardwood floors is that they are extremely simple to maintain.
Spills are easy to wipe up and clean, hardwood floors are stain resistant, and there’s no need to vacuum regularly (just a quick once-over with a swifter now and again). However, wood floors are prone to scratches and dents, so you’ll have to give them a good sanding, smoothing and refinishing when you feel they need it. Some people do so every 3-5 years, others 10-20!
Other major advantages of hardwood flooring include increasing your home’s value, improving the acoustics of a room and better air quality.
Expert Advice and Tips for Your Hardwood Floors
The team at Redi-Cut Carpets & Window Treatments know all there is to know about wooden floors. We’ve asked our hardwood flooring experts for their best advice and top tips for choosing, protecting and maintaining hardwood flooring.
If the thought of scratches on your hardwood floors turns you off, then you’ll want to go with a lighter stain. Darker stains tend to show scratches easier. For those who wouldn’t quite call themselves “neat freaks,” lighter hardwood floors are also better suited for you. They tend to show less dirt than darker ones.
Install solid hardwood flooring in your living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, hallways and even kitchens. You’ll want to go for engineered hardwood floors in basements and bathrooms since moisture and humidity will cause solid hardwood to shrink or expand.
