Choosing your Floor
There are lots of reasons to love wood floors. Not only is wood beautiful, but it’s also soft and warm underfoot, easy to clean, and hypoallergenic. No two pieces of hardwood are alike. Because of this, your particular item looks like no other in the world...
Wood is a living material and it brings life to the house. So preferred are wood floors, in fact, that just having them increases the value of a home.
Because the floor is a substantial feature, the type you choose will go a long way toward defining the space. And because it usually represents a significant investment, you will want to choose carefully.
If you want a narrow room to appear wider, choose narrow boards. For a large room, wide boards help provide balance. Choose wood with knots and colour variations for a rustic feel.
