Tips to Find the Perfect Hardwood Floor

Questions About Hardwood Flooring

Our clients often ask us how to achieve the look they want in their home by picking the right floor. Some clients prefer going with a hardwood that has more grain and character thinking that it will give the space a more rustic look while others prefer a wood with less grain thinking it will give off a more crisp, modern look.

Although these are not necessarily false assumptions, every interior is different and entirely unique.The most important thing to remember when undergoing renovations is the power good design can have. In other words, it is not just the flooring that can determine whether or not an interior space looks rustic, traditional, modern, contemporary or whatever other style is desired. In fact, the flooring is only part of the equation.

Tips to Find the Right Look for Your Home Decor

Hardwood is just a piece of the puzzle...

In order to achieve that signature look, it is always the bigger picture that matters. Selecting the right furniture, wall-coverings, paint colors, window treatments and everything else that will be a part of the space is just as important. That being said, if a rustic look is desired, when it comes to deciding which species of wood to go with, there are a lot of factors to consider in order to achieve the look. The best thing to remember is to not judge a species of wood by its grain! With the right stain, the right gloss and the right finish, no matter what the species of hardwood you choose to go with, our sales consultants can answer all of your questions and help guide you towards the right floor for your home.

Since we manufacture all of our hardwood flooring we offer endless options. We have three different finishing options including our satin finish, which is around 30% gloss. We also offer custom colors to ensure you get the perfect floor for you. If you have a high traffic home we always recommend going with a satin finish hardwood, or any other lower sheen options. Otherwise you are likely to have visible scratches on the floor when the light hits in certain spots.
