Actually, to be truthful, hardwood floors are in every year. In fact, a year never goes by without some form of trending hardwood flooring, and it simply never goes out of style. And how could it? It has been an elegant addition to home all over the nation for hundreds of years, with some still in use today. Historic buildings are always proud to refinish “original” wood floors, restoring their zest and life to grace the home for another few decades more. It’s just as functional as it is beautiful, something you’ll find soon after having them installed.

It’s actually very easy to customize hardwood floors to your very own specification for both functionality and appearance. Starting with species selection is always the best idea. Rated from very soft to very hard, this is where your floors will get their ability to stand up under heavy traffic or very active lifestyles. In fact, selecting a species that is too soft for the level of traffic inside your home can drastically reduce their lifespan, and no one wants that.
Another option you have for personalization is choosing an outstanding stain color. You’ll have more colors at your disposal if you select site-finished flooring. Prefinished flooring is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a quicker install, and aren’t concerned as much about stain color.
Putting the perfect finish on your floors is the final step. Regular high gloss finishes are often considered the norm, but that has been changing with recent trends. Now, we are seeing more homeowners turning to finishes such as vintage, distressed, or hand scraped. The best thing about these finishes is that they can help to mask the effect of repetitive wear and tear, which can help delay the need to refinish your floors.
