The beauty of wood floors goes beyond durability, practicality and easy maintenance. The moment you walk into a house with wood floors you feel the impact. Gleaming floors reflecting light, add patterns and interest to a home. Wood floors also create a design format. The type of wood and color of the hardwood set a tone for the home from formal to casual or anywhere in between. In the past more so than now there was a large division between formal and casual but design restraints have lessened in more current years. Folks tend to live more relaxed lifestyles than in earlier times. Dark wood heavily patterned floors at one time called out for traditional furnishings and the lighter wood simpler style floors leaned toward the contemporary or casual. In today's world hardwood floors can suit any style and one does not need to put in just one type of hardwood. In my home for instance I have several different varieties of hardwood flooring but yet the home still flows from room to room.
Of course if you have traditional furniture say in mahogany or cherry you may want to install a darker floor for instance like a Brazilian cherry that would hold true to your furnishings. But if you
have an eclectic look going with a mix of wood furnishings any type of wood flooring would compliment. Keep in mind that lighter and natural finished floors make rooms seem more spacious and bright. So look at your home and see what would be appropriate for you, light, dark, natural or stained there are many options in today's market place.
I hope this has been helpful if you are thinking of having wood floors installed. Remember I am here to help to answer an questions you may have regarding wood species, longevity, types of finishes and more.
