Rustic Kitchen Design

 

Choosing the right hardwood floor can be a bit overwhelming. With the variety of woods, colors, textures and finishes available in the market, it can get a bit confusing to pick out the best hardwood floor for your house.

Let’s have a look at the 4 things you must keep in mind while making this flooring decision.

 

  • Choice of Wood Species

 

Reclaimed Plank Hardwood Flooring

The types of hardwood floors are quite extensive. Some are harder and more durable while other softer ones are not so durable. Mostly, red and white oak are used as domestic wood floors but you can also look into hickory and maple, which are a harder type of wood. The key idea here is that the harder the wood the better it will be!

  • Color and Appearance

Owing to the wide variety of color and finishes of wood flooring, it is easy to select a floor that matches the interior and decor of your house. Wide planks with highly defined wood grains usually work best for country-style interiors while for colonial homes, it is best to consider wide, random plank width flooring in either oak or maple.

On the other hand, if you have more traditional interiors, hardwood flooring in widths of 2-1/4″ to 3-1/4″ in oak, maple or walnut will be a smart choice. The contemporary setting makes things a lot easier because you can use virtually any kind of wood depending on what stain or finished is used in it.

  • Types of Finish

The finish of the wood is what determines the overall appearance of your wood floor. The same wood species can look completely different when it is finished in clear gloss than when hand-scarped. Flooring is sold either “unfinished” or “prefinished.” In case of the unfinished finish, it is sanded and tweaked on-site so that nothing can enter the seams between the floors.

On the other hand, pre-finished flooring is factory applied in a controlled setting and typically requires seven to nine coats of a sealant. Mostly, experts recommend pre-finished flooring because it makes sure you get a superior and consistent finish. Moreover, it usually comes with a warranty so, that’s a plus!

  • Cost of the Wood Floor

Cost plays an important part when it comes to remodeling your floor. Typically, solid prefinished wood flooring runs from $2.49 to $12.69 per square foot. Try and find an option that is well within your budget. Also, keep in mind the cost of installing.

Installing solid hardwood flooring can give the floors in your house a classy chic look. Look at your options and invest wisely.
