It’s so exciting to finally settle on hardwood flooring for your home. However, even after doing so, you still have some options to finalize. For instance, you’ll want to pick the perfect wood species, which helps to offer the right protection against wear and tear, the perfect stain color, which helps to match all your decor, and a finish that can really bring everything together. Many homeowners choose a classic high-gloss finish, but you can also choose from hand scraped, distressed, or vintage finishes as well.
With a lifespan that can reach 50 to 100 years with ease, you’ll find these floors can go decades without showing very much wear and tear. When it does finally begin to show through, however, you can always schedule a refinishing for your floors. This process strips away years of wear, leaving you with a floor that looks brand new all over again. During the refinishing process, you can even choose to change your finish type, or even stain colors, to better match a decor or interior design scheme.
Be sure to ask about the necessity of professional installation when it comes to your hardwood flooring.
