How to choose the right hardwood for your home

Hardwood is simply one of the most popular floor coverings on the market today. Homeowners have always loved the luxurious elegance this floor covering provides. What’s more, it is a timeless classic that never goes out of style. When you add in the fact that it has one of the longest life spans of any other floor covering, you might wonder why you didn’t make the switch much sooner.

Which hardwood floor is right for me?

Once you make the decision to put hardwood floors in your home, your work is not yet over. In fact, there are so many options still left to choose, it can seem almost overwhelming. Breaking those options down into smaller, easier to work with bits of information can help immensely. And that’s where we can help.

First, you’ll want to consider which rooms you would like this new floor covering placed in. This is an important step, because wood floors can’t be placed in basement or below grade. The change in temperature and humidity levels can cause these floors to expand and contract, leading to buckling, warping and even cracking. It’s simply not worth the risk.

You’ll also want to carefully consider the amount of traffic that comes through your home on a regular basis. The heavier the traffic flow, the harder and denser the wood species will have to be to withstand the wear and tear. It could be that you need a very hard wood for your living room, or kitchen, but you could opt for a softer wood for bedrooms or libraries.

Choosing a finish for your floor is another option you’ll have to consider. While the sleek, waxed look is preferable to most homeowners, it isn’t always the best option. For instance, if you know up front that you will likely experience a lot of tiny scratches, dings or wear, you might want to choose a distressed or hand scraped finish. This finish hides many of the imperfections that often lead to the early need for refinishing.
