Choosing the perfect hardwood flooring requires a little more than merely stating that's the product you prefer. There are several options you'll need to decide to make sure you get a floor covering that suits your every need and preference.

Some of these choices will affect your décor and interior design, while others will play a part in the materials' extended durability. Let's find out a bit more.

What are your hardwood flooring options?

The first real choice you’ll have to make pertains to species selection. This is an essential part of the process, as the species, available in both hard and soft styles, will determine your floors' overall lifespan.

In homes that are busy and active, the harder the species, the better, especially in high traffic areas such as entryways, hallways, and living rooms. You can get away with softer material in lesser-traveled areas and still take advantage of an excellent lifespan.

You can also add protection to your wood choice is to use a finish type such as hand-scraped, wire-brushed, or distressed. They can hide much of the daily wear your floor takes on, leaving you with a great looking floor longer.

To create an outstanding appearance for any room, be sure to use stain colors that not only complement your décor but can withstand possible upcoming trend changes as well. There are vast options in unfinished materials, with prefinished materials having fewer choices but a much faster installation period.
