Hardwood flooring is a classical and traditional option that is still incredibly popular among homeowners. The natural aesthetic that hardwood offers make it a top choice for those looking to add value and beauty to their home's interiors. Hardwood comes in various grains, colors, and wood types, and choosing the right one for your home will depend on your budget and general preferences. Our team can assist with choosing the best one for your home and one that's suitable for your budget.
Types of Wood
The most popular types of wood for hardwood flooring are oak and cherry. Oak wood is lighter in color and offers a yellowish tone that can easily be stained with darker colors. Cherry, although darker and with underlying red tones, offers substantial durability. These two types of wood are the prime choices and perfect for home interiors. If you have another wood choice in mind, we can also suggest mahogany and walnut because they're equally durable, beautiful, and can be stained with different colors to your liking.
Once your hardwood floors have been completely installed, you can then choose a new stain color for your wood. This is done by applying a dye to the top layer of the wood and across the surface. Once dried, the coloring is then sealed in place using a finish of either gloss, semi-gloss, or matte. We also recommend sealing the wood in place further to protect from scratches, fading, water and spill stains, and more. Once the stain has been applied, you'll look at your wood in a new way and have a new appreciation for it. You can also consider staining other wooden features in your home so that they match your hardwood floors, such as your trim, baseboards, cabinets, drawers, and any other wood surfaces.
One of the many benefits that come with hardwood flooring is that it offers lasting durability that other flooring materials simply can't compete with. Hardwood flooring can easily offer decades of longevity and strength without needing ongoing or regular maintenance. Its beauty is long-lasting as well, and it can easily add more value to your home.

Although hardwood bears a higher initial cost than other flooring materials, this doesn't mean that it'll necessarily be more costly to maintain. Once you install hardwood and stain it to your desired color, the color will then be sealed in place. The color won't easily fade, and your hardwood won't easily be cracked or chipped if it's properly sealed. Doing this will lower the overall costs of maintaining your hardwood floors since they won’t require ongoing maintenance. Furthermore, our team works with you to deliver affordable hardwood flooring costs that won’t drain the bank.
