Type of Room
How do you use the room where you’re considering laying a hardwood floor? Hardwoods are extremely durable and meant to last a lifetime or longer, but they do perform best in rooms that maintain a temperature between 60 and 80 degrees and 40 to 60 percent humidity. Because of this, they may not be the best choice for a bathroom or a sunroom where the temperature varies wildly on a day to day basis.
Depending on the amount of traffic you have in the room you’re considering, you might consider different types of wood. For a lot of heavy traffic from people or pets, consider harder woods like oak, cherry, maple, hickory, elm, balsa, mahogany or sycamore. For rooms with less traffic, you can go with softer woods like birch, cedar, pine, redwood or fir.
Look and Feel
There are so many options these days when it comes to the look and feel of wood floors. Whether you’re going for a traditional staggered flat wood, the current trend of handscraped, distressed wood or even a custom parquet design, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Hardwood flooring can be laid and finished to any range of colors and any type of décor.
This is the most important aspect of any hardwood floor. Choosing a reputable hardwood company that can walk you through your options and explain which ones are best for your home is a great way to guarantee you’re getting solid, quality hardwood floors that will last for many, many years to come. While there are always bargains to be had, make sure you’re getting the quality you and your home deserve.
