Of all the considerations you’ll have to make in hardwood flooring, the most important could be that of species choice. Wood species are rated according to hardness, and there are many to choose from, including Oak, Hickory, Birch, and many more. Some hold stains better than others, while some are specifically rated for the busiest homes out there. Others might work well in a closet or pantry, but aren’t hard enough to be installed in living rooms and other busy areas.
Stain choice is an important option, and can help these floors to blend in perfectly with your existing decor. There are yet other factors around this choice, as well, that will determine your options. For instance, prefinished versus site finished can have a direct impact on the number of color choices you have. Your flooring specialist will be able to help you make the right choice.
An often overlooked fact is that hardwood can add great value to your home. Whether you’re passing it down through the family, or you’ve decided to sell, the fact is these floors make your home more appealing. When selling, they always bring a higher final sale price, as home buyers know about that value.
