Factors to Consider Before Purchasing Wood Floors

You know you want the warmth and beauty of hardwood flooring in your home—now what? There are many options to choose from, and a lot of different factors to consider in order to choose the best flooring for your home. Color and texture are obviously important factors, but hardness is equally important and oftentimes overlooked. If you have children or pets, or if you do a lot of entertaining, a more durable hardwood such as Brazilian Walnut or American Hickory is your best bet. Also consider whether you want to purchase unfinished or pre-finished wood flooring. Unfinished wood may work better if you're trying to match an existing floor, but it is more labor intensive to install unfinished planks.
