While you have many options when it comes to the flooring in your home, you can’t go wrong with darker hardwood floors. However, there are some maintenance challenges that you might not have to deal with when you choose other types of floors. Here is a guide on how to take care of your hardwood floors.
The Wood and the Stain
Some species of wood are darker than others. You can also choose to use a darker stain on your floors as well. The choice is yours. Choosing a darker wood can be more expensive, so you might want to choose the darker stain instead. Dark heartwood is much rarer than other types of heartwood. Still, the lighter wood given a darker stain is more prone to show scratches, dents, and other signs of damage. some of the flooring options you have at this point include black walnut, mahogany, Brazilian Cherry, and Jarrah.
No matter which type of floor you choose, the finish that goes with it is still important. You’ll see dust and footprints build up, both of which will ruin the aesthetics of the darker hardwood. Keeping your floors clean will help them last longer. Even if you have a full house, there are many different ways to make sure that your floors remain beautiful. One of these is choosing the right lighting for the room.
Natural light isn’t kind to darker floors, so you’ll have to think about what lighting is available for the rooms where you have darker hardwood floors.
