When you consider all the available options in hardwood floors, you might feel overwhelmed. There are many decisions to make, but with just a few tips, you’ll be able to make the best choices based on your specific requirements.

Here are some tips for choosing your hardwood


Species selection is likely the most crucial part of your process, with choices like oak, maple, hickory, and pine, to name a few. Besides adding beauty and décor-matching qualities, hardwood flooring also equips you with the durability necessary for your floors to see their intended lifespan.

Oak is one of the hardest and most readily available options, providing you with outstanding durability, even in hectic, busy homes. You’ll find it accepts stain well, is hard-wearing, and fits into a wide variety of décor requirements.

The next choice will be stain color, which can include either prefinished or site-finished materials. Prefinished wood comes with stain and sealant already in place, which leads to a shorter installation process, but site-finished flooring offers you far more stain color options.

Next, you’ll want to consider your finish options. Many homeowners opt for the ever-popular high-gloss look, but other available choices include distressed, vintage, wire-brushed, and hand-scraped.

These finishes give you a beautiful look and add protection that can bring a longer lifespan. They work to hide signs of wear, such as scratches and scuffs, and can lengthen your time between refinishing projects too.
