Hardwood flooring is not only limited to a single type of wood, but there are several types of wood that have their unique characteristics and performances such as Oak, Hickory, Maple, Acacia, etc. Here at Ted’s Flooring, you can choose any of these wood species for your home according to your visual preferences, lifestyle, and available budget.
1) WHERE WILL THE HARDWOOD FLOORS BE GOING?
If you plan to do a hardwood floor installation in a constantly moving area such as your living room or hallway, consider using a type of wood that has a fairly high Janka hardness rating. In the case of wanting to install hardwood flooring in the kitchen area and seek to eliminate surface wear, scuffs and scratches, it is better to choose an engineered hardwood with a distressed finish.
If the refinishing hardwood floor is aimed at your room, regardless of size you can use a whitewashed finish or Oak flooring to create a light and open environment. Later, you can put a rug that suits your style in the middle of the room for warmth and cushioning.
2) ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE BEST FLOORING FOR DOGS?
If you are one of those homeowners who have pets, it is recommended that you choose a wood floor refinishing, as it has knots and characters that will help hide any dent, scratch or stains that your pet makes.
3) WHAT IS YOUR DÉCOR STYLE?
While hardwood flooring can work with any type of interior and exterior décor, selecting them based on the appropriate colors, planks, widths, and styles can add a unique custom touch to your space. In case you are looking to establish a modernist style, the use of flooring with gray tones or neutral light / dark tones is highly recommended. If you are looking to establish a traditional style, you can go for a Hickory-type flooring.
If you happen to want to achieve a BoHo look in your space, you can use a light chocolate hardwood flooring to complement it. In the case of a Coastal décor, you can use a Maple hardwood floor in cocoa and dark streaks or an organic hardwood with wider planking to balance the light colors of your hardware and the marine tones.
While there can be numerous factors when choosing a specific flooring that can stress you out, you can contact Ted’s Flooring flooring contractors for a helping hand with that issue. We will advise you with your choice of flooring for your home or commercial space so that you can enjoy it for years!
