Renovating your floors is a great way to change the aesthetic of a room or even your entire home. However, before you go and jump the gun, let’s look at some factors to consider before you begin making improvements.
Think of the furniture you already have in your home and what’s going to pair well with that. If you don’t have any furniture yet, then you have more options. It’s always a good idea to choose hardwood flooring that’s more neutral than not. This ensures that whenever you decide to get new furniture you’ll have more options to match your flooring.
One component of your decision will be your budget. This could determine the type of flooring you decide to get, as different styles have different prices. I'm sure your local hardwood floor contractor will have much for you to choose from and will guide you on what’s best for your budget.
Natural hardwood can last for many years and can stay fresh with refinishing every now and again. So if your floors get scratched you can always have them sanded down and made brand new again.
It’s important to consider traffic flow when determining the most appropriate flooring for your home. If there’s high foot traffic you’ll want a floor that’s durable enough to withstand those footpaths.
There are many types of wood flooring species and your wood flooring contractor will present you with a variety to choose from.
You can choose from Red oak, white oak, hickory, ash, maple, walnut, mahogany, tigerwood, teak, etc.
You can select the best option that you find to be most suitable for your home and preferred style.
