Finding the Right Hardwood Flooring for You

Published on February 8th, 2019

Hardwood flooring in Naperville is one of the main facets of a home that buyers want, so if you’re hoping to renovate your home this year, make sure to add this task to your to-do list! Installing hardwood floors in your home instantly gives it a sense of charm and elegance that other flooring options do not. Here are some different considerations to think about when deciding on the look and functionality of your hardwood floors.

The Type of Wood

There are many different options in terms of wood species, each varying in durability, color and grain pattern. Some popular examples include maple, cherry and oak; these are popular because of their hardness. Other options include mahogany and Brazilian cherry because they are beautiful but not quite as durable. The type of wood that you choose will also help determine the color of it as well.

Hardwood Flooring Textures

If you want sheen, hardwood flooring is a great option. However, you can also opt for hardwood flooring in Naperville that has more of an antique, worn-down look. The choice is up to you and it is dependent on the aesthetic that you want to achieve in your home.

Hardness of Hardwood Flooring

If you have a busy household filled with pets and kids, stick to a wood that is firm. Examples include red oak that will help keep your floors in good shape. Soft wood is more likely to show scratches and dents.
