What kind of flooring does your home have? It could be time to give tile or vinyl the old heave-ho. Wood flooring looks great and is a beautiful way to improve the aesthetics of your home. There are different species of hardwood flooring to choose from as well. Here are just a few sample ideas for you to consider as you go about making a change.
First up on our list is maple. If you love pancakes, then you’re probably already intimately familiar with maple syrup. But now is not the time for breakfast! Right now it is time to choose a new hardwood floor. The grains you find on this wood are surprisingly subtle which makes it a great choice to pair with virtually any room inside your home. It can also withstand high levels of foot traffic, so putting in places where it will be stepped on all day isn’t as much of a problem.
Rosewood is another species of hardwood that you might not expect can be made into flooring. The grain patterns on this wood are also eye-catching and it can come in a variety of unexpectedly appealing colors such as purple or yellow. Rosewood has been used to make furniture for a long time, but it is steadily gaining popularity as a flooring material as well. Don’t be afraid to invest in it!
If durability is one of your top concerns, then you can’t go wrong by choosing walnut wood for your floors. You’ll find it on the Janka hardness scale as one of the toughest woods ever used for home improvement, and it’ll endure far longer than you might expect it to, to boot.
Cherry Wood Flooring
The last wood on our list is known as cherry wood. Ordinary cherry wood might not be as strong as Brazilian cherry, but you should still consider purchasing and using it regardless. For one thing, it can make every room you install it in feel more elegant and sophisticated. There is one small flaw that you might unintentionally overlook, though – cherry wood is much softer than its counterparts and tends to scratch more easily. This means that you’ll need to be more careful about refinishing the surface of the wood.
