What's new in hardwood flooring?

If you've never had hardwood flooring installed in your home before, any wood floor is going to be "new" to you. As such, it’s important to remember what a timeless and classic floor covering this is. While trends come and go and frequently change, this is one floor covering that stands the test of time against them all. And the durability of these floors is unrivaled by most flooring coverings currently on the market. With lifespans that average about 100 years with proper care and maintenance, you'll likely never have to install another floor covering again as long as you own your home.

Hardwood is as classic as it's ever been

Some things never change. At least, the good things don't, and that’s where hardwood flooring can come into play in your home. Often a "once and for all" flooring choice, you’ll be treated to a choice of options that can help you truly personalize your flooring experience. It all starts with a superior species type that will cater to your specific needs. For instance, a high-energy, high-activity home needs a hard species type such as cherry or oak. Choosing a softer species for such high traffic can cause excessive wear and premature aging that will quickly wear your floors out. After picking the best species for your floors, you can then select a stain color that best matches your decor, wall colors, and furniture. When considering stain colors, it’s good to know that you'll have more color options if you choose site-finished materials. Pre-finished woods offer a quicker installation time but limits your choices of color. There may be trade-offs you’ll be willing to make and this can be decided by thrashing out the details with your flooring professional.
