When hardwood floors is the perfect choice

It’s not difficult to choose hardwood flooring for your home, especially if it’s something you’ve had your heart set on for some time. It’s a stunning look for any space that brings true timelessness into your home. Matching a variety of interior design, it seems to age right along with any trend changes that happen to pop up over the years. Still, should you design you want to change a few things, you can do so during a refinishing project. This can give you the appearance of having brand new floors installed while all the benefits of your flooring remain firmly in place.

Hardwood facts you should know

One of the questions that homeowners often ask is how long their flooring has to acclimate. Generally speaking, an acclimation period of 24 to 72 hours is necessary so that the hardwood has time to adjust to the specific humidity levels in your home. This can help keep expansion and contraction to a minimum, which leaves your floors looking better for longer.

It’s also important to note that solid wood floors should never be installed in below-ground spaces such as basements. The good news is, there are excellent alternatives to hardwood flooring that can be placed in those spaces instead. You can ask your flooring specialist about engineered flooring and why it’s a good fit for such a room.

You also have some specific choices still to make after deciding on this material for your floors. For instance, a specific species type, stain color, and finish option make a big difference in the finished product. Species, for instance, is especially important, since they are rated from very soft to very hard. Choosing too soft a species can result in premature wear and lifespan for your floors.
