Huge Variety

Every room has a theme and every house has a personality. You may want to have different themes across the house or you may want one throughout. In both cases, the floor must complement the theme you are aiming for. With this in mind, the color, grain, texture, and finish of the floor should be chosen to complement the theme. There’s a huge variety of options to choose from when it comes to hardwood floors. Let’s start off with the most basic metric: the color. There are various shades to choose from, earth tones to ashy ones and light to dark colored wood, oak to mahogany; all have their own appeal. In addition to color, you should also study the grain and texture that appeals to you as different textures appear in each given color, multiplying your options even further. Finally, the different kinds of finishing available also add to the versatility of hardwood floors. They may be finished off with lacquer, oil, or have a matte finish.

Easy to Install, Easy to Clean

Hardwood flooring is usually installed by putting down planks that are aligned according to the structure of the room. The installation process is short and can easily be done by experienced professionals, typically in a span of 1 to 3 days depending on the size of the space. Each plank is installed such that there’s no space for dust to settle between them. The floor can be wiped with a damp mop immediately to avoid permanent damage in case of a spill. For maintenance, simply sweeping or vacuuming across the floor daily or every other day (depending on the use of space) is enough. Hardwood planks installed  

Refinish, Don’t Replace

There is a timeless quality to hardwood floors that makes them so unique and special. It’s the kind of flooring that has never stopped being attractive and it continues to become more valuable. A characteristic unique to hardwood flooring is it does not need to be replaced after it becomes worn with time. Instead, it can just be refinished to achieve a fresh, new look once again.
