How to Choose the Right Hardwood Flooring

Looking to choose the perfect hardwood flooring? The first thing to know is that there isn’t really any such thing as the “right” flooring, just the one that’s best for your home, depending on a number of different factors:

Colour. Simply put, some people tend to prefer one colour or stain over another. Whether you prefer darker woods or lighter ones for your flooring, you’ll probably have several different options that could work. The best way to decide, of course, is to see the choices for yourself in different kinds of lighting.

The style you want in your home. Beyond simple hardwood flooring colours and stains, some varieties tend to have a more classic feel, while others blend well with contemporary furnishings and decor. This is another area where looking at photographs can be useful, but there isn’t any substitute for seeing the real thing in person.

The durability of your hardwood flooring. Do you prefer a softer wood, or one that is more resistant to scratches and impressions? Nearly any type of hardwood flooring is going to be extremely durable over the long term, but some types hide light wear and damage better than others.

Price and budget. Even if your budget isn’t your first concern, it’s probably something you’ll want to keep in mind in the back of your head. Hardwood flooring can go from very affordable to extremely exclusive, just depending on how available the materials are. Our team can help you choose something that fits your style and budget, so don’t let money concerns stop you from getting the hardwood flooring you’ve been dreaming of.
