Hardwood facts you should know

When switching to hardwood flooring from any other flooring type, there are a few important bits of information you should know. At first, it seems like the switch is as simple as deciding to go with solid wood, but there are many other factors to consider. Once everything is decided upon, then you have the installation process to consider before your flooring is finally finished. Once it is, you will be absolutely thrilled with the end result, the benefits, and the potential life span of your new flooring.

Hardwood specifics

The first thing you’ll want to do when choosing a wood floor, is to do a quick assessment of your specific needs. Do you have small children? Are there pets in the home on a regular basis? Do you experience high or low levels of traffic? Each of these questions, and more, are very important and will determine which particular wood species is best suited for your home.

For instance, if you have a great deal of traffic in your home, you will want a harder species, such as oak. This will cut down on the amount of wear and tear that actually makes an impact of the floor itself. Lower traffic will allow for softer woods.

The same questions can also be used to figure out which type of finish is best for your floors. You might have your heart set on a sleek and shiny finish. However, scuffs and scratches might mean you would be better served by a distressed look, or perhaps a hand scraped finish.

One of the greatest advantages in the world of hardwood flooring is the fact that it can be refinished. So when that everyday wear and tear does finally start showing through, you can take advantage of this opportunity to bring your floors back to a like-new finish.
