How to make hardwood flooring work for you

Even the mention of hardwood flooring brings to mind some of the most elegant and classical floor coverings from many generations. There’s just something about this material that speaks volumes about not only the home it's installed in but also the homeowners that live there. At the same time, it is durable, functional, and provides enjoyment for many years to come, with a lifespan that can easily reach 100 years if properly maintained and cared for.

Hardwood flooring and you

Tailoring your hardwood flooring to suit your specific needs is very important. You’ll need to make some decisions based on your specific household composition as well as what you expect your floors to look like. The good news is that some of these options serve dual purposes. For instance, you’ll need to pick a species that serves the activity levels of your home, with harder woods necessary for busier homes. The species also offers hues, graining patterns, and designs that can complement your interior decor as well, making it both functional and highly decorative all at the same time.

When choosing a finish for your floors, you might first think about the classic high-gloss finish that has always been a popular choice among homeowners. However, other finishes such as vintage, distressed, or wire brushed, can work well to hide signs of wear and tear, leaving you with a stunning look for much longer.

Once wear and tear does become an issue, however, you’ll want to schedule a hardwood refinishing. This process strips away decades of abuse and regular wear to reveal a new layer of wood which can be refinished to perfection. If you prefer, changes in stain color and finish type can also be made at this time.
