It’s very exciting to finally get to choose and install hardwood floors in your home. However, even after making the initial decision, there are still some options you have to decide on as well. One of the most important of those is which species of wood you choose. The various species are ranked according to hardness, with some being very soft, some very hard, and everything in between. The more active and busy your home, the harder a species you’ll need to choose for it. Oak is a great choice for most homes, and remains a very popular species option.
Stain color makes a big difference in your home, especially in relation to existing decor. Choosing site finished or prefinished wood has a large bearing on how much say you’ll have in the color options available. For instance, prefinished wood offers a faster install time, but your stain choices will not be as great as site finished flooring. The latter takes more time to install, and creates more mess and odors, but gives you the widest option of available stain colors.
Adding a finish to your floors is a step of completion, but it goes further than stunning good looks. These can even hide the effect of wear and tear with finishes such as hand scraped and distressed.
