Personalizing your hardwood floor isn’t nearly as tough a job as it sounds. We start by looking into the specific species type that will work best for your traffic and activity levels in your home. Households with more activity require harder woods, whereas less traffic amounts to softer wood species choices. This is a very important step, as too soft a species can yield a floor covering that wears out much sooner than is expected. To reach maximum life span, this first choice is incredibly important.
Choosing a stain color is an exciting option. You can either match the decor you already have in place, or, if doing a complete remodel, you can choose something you can build around. With this option come the choices of prefinished or site finished wood. If you decide on prefinished wood, your installation will be finished quicker, but you’ll have less stain options. On the other hand, site finished wood takes longer to install, but opens the doors wide on just about any stain color you could imagine.
Finally, you’ll round out your flooring look with a specific finish. While high gloss is a common example, other choices might include distressed, vintage, or hand scraped. These latter finishes all work towards masking signs of wear and tear and can even extend the life of your flooring.
