As you search for the perfect hardwood flooring
addition for your remodel, you may wonder which product is the best option for your remodel. Many clients ask about solid and engineered wood flooring, how they differ, and which is best for your space, and the answer depends strictly on your requirements and preferences. Below we'll discuss wood floors to help you find the perfect surface for your project.
Hardwood options are phenomenal for their stunning beauty, exceptional durability, and one of the most extended lifespans in the flooring industry. With suitable material and service choices, these floors can last more than 100 years, so you may never need to replace your wood floors. That's good news because it saves you time and money with the flooring installations you won't have to go through in upcoming years.
Choosing the perfect visual starts with a species choice, which affects natural color, graining patterns, and character. You can layer on additional visual appeal with extensive stain colors, textures, lengths, widths, and installation layouts that offer endless combinations. Finally, consider adding intricate inlays, borders, or mosaics for a sophisticated look, which gives a sense of artistry and craftsmanship.
Durability starts with a species selection, as some hardwood flooring products are harder than others and offer a longer lifespan and better protection against daily wear. A sealant and protective topcoat also guard against busy areas, high traffic, pets, and child's play, for better performance and visual appeal for years. Finally, if you need added durability, especially in your busiest areas, consider adding a few area rugs or runners to catch debris and dirt, which could scratch and mar the surface of your new hardwood flooring.
