Back to basics with hardwood

Are you in the market for new hardwood floors? Are you still trying to decide upon the details? If the answer to those questions is yes, we have great news!

It all starts with the basics, so that’s what we’re going to give you today. Once you have an idea about the basic features, then you can build from there. Your result will be the hardwood floor of your dreams!

Hardwood species

First, you’ll want to choose the species of wood you’d like to use for your flooring. Different species give you different attributes. For instance, oak has a nice open grain, is very durable, and resists splitting. Walnut has a deep, rich, brown color with a straight open grain and can easily be worked with hand tools.

There are many, many species available. You can choose either domestic or exotic hardwood for your floors, depending upon your taste. To find which species is best suited to your own personal needs, make sure to discuss details with your flooring professional.

Hardwood characteristics

You’ll want to match the characteristics of the wood flooring you choose to the characteristics of your home. For example, you wouldn’t want to install a softer wood in an area of your home that experiences a great deal of foot traffic.
