Once you’ve decided upon hardwood for your floors, you have several more options to choose from, including your choice of wood species. Depending upon your own unique needs, the harder the species, the better the wood stands up under heavy traffic. With less traffic, such as is found in bedrooms, and especially in closets, you can opt for a softer wood.
From there, you’ll be able to choose the stain color that best suits your own décor. Some woods, such as cherry, have their very own unique color. In these cases, some homeowners prefer a clear coat stain, to really let those natural hues show through. You can also decide whether you’d like your flooring to come prefinished, or if you’d preferto have it finished after it’s installed in your home. Ask your flooring specialist to discuss the benefits of each.
Finally, you’ll be able to decide which finish will best suit your lifestyle. The classic glossy finish is one of the most popular, but there are others you might decide on instead. For instance, a hand scraped or distressed finish, can help to fend off signs of everyday wear and tear,much longer than a glossy finish.
One of the best things about hardwood floors is that they can be refinished. When other homeowners are considering the need for replacement flooring, you’ll just be getting ready to have yours refinished for the first time. Better still, should you decide to change your stain color or finish, you can do so when having these floors refinished.
