Choosing hardwood floors
for your home means you most likely will never have to install another type of flooring. The lifespan of this material can easily reach 100 years and even more with proper care and maintenance which means it practically pays for itself over time. Durability is excellent, as is its ability to blend in well with any decor or interior design scheme. It stands up to trend changes, remaining relevant for years to come and can be refinished instead of replaced after wear and tear starts to show.

You might not automatically think of variety when you consider hardwood flooring for your home. However, you have a great deal of variety at your fingertips in this material. For instance, you’ll be able to choose the perfect species, giving an amazing look and feel to your spaces. Rated from softest to hardest, some species are better for busier homes than others are, so be sure to compare your favorite with your specific needs for the space the flooring will be installed.
After choosing the species you prefer and that best suits your traffic levels, you can discuss stain color options. It’s important to know, at this point, that there are more options available in site-finished materials than prefinished ones. At the same time, however, site-finished materials take longer to install so if a quick installation is important to you, this option may not be as desirable.
Once species and stain selection are solidified, you can move on to a finish that gives you everything you need. Many homeowners prefer the classic high-gloss finish, but others are available that do a much better job at hiding signs of wear and tear. For instance, hand scraped and distressed finishes can hide scratches and especially scuffing as well as many other signs of wear.
