If you have previously avoided hardwood flooring because it just seemed like too much, we urge you to consider these points as you search for your new floor covering.

Within the many various options you have in hardwood flooring, odds are there are only a few that are going to match your needs perfectly. For example, there are plenty of wood species to choose from, but only a few will be best suited for your floors. Busy households with larger amounts of traffic mean you’ll need a denser hardwood, such as oak. On the other hand, if you’re flooring a bedroom or closet space, with much less traffic, you can afford to choose a softer wood without compromising integrity.
It works in much the same way with the finish you choose, as well as the stain color and other available options. Busy households, for instance, would fare better with a distressed or hand scraped finish, which helps to hide signs of wear and tear, and can give you more time between refinishing projects.
Let’s not forget that hardwood flooring is never an acceptable material to place in below grade spaces. The news isn’t all bad, though, because in these situations you can choose an engineered wood flooring that will allow you to keep that same great wall-to-wall look of real wood flooring.
