Hardwood is a solid flooring choice

Many homeowners wait patiently for the day when they can finally choose a hardwood floor covering to have installed in their home. It’s one of the most appealing flooring materials for a wide variety of reasons, not the least of which is the impressive life span it brings to the table. With a bit more budget required up front, it’s important to note the amount of money you will actually save over time. It means you won’t be installing new flooring anytime soon. In fact, it could be the last flooring you ever have installed.

What to consider when buying hardwood

With the number of options available here at Contract Carpet One, deciding which wood floor is right for you can be a daunting task. Do you choose the red oak, with its warm and coarse grain, or maple wood, which offers a fine grain for a more elegant look? Here are some important factors to consider when installing hardwood in your home.
Some trees have bold grain patterns, such as oak, and are ideal if you prefer an informal or country look. Others, such as maple and birch, offer a discreet, more refined grain, and are great for a more traditional setting.

Shade Variation
Darker tones can create a more traditional feel, while lighter tones complete the more casual room. A more creative approach could be to draw inspiration for your floor from a wall color, a piece of art, or a gorgeous countertop.

Gloss Level
The gloss level of a wood floor refers to the finish and visual sheen of the product. It ranges from a sultry, smooth satin, to a brilliant high gloss.

Edge Profile
The edge style of your floor matters. Boards with a square edge fit flush against one another for a smooth, elegant feel. Full bevel and micro bevel edges, however, create an angled effect if you’d like depth and dimension.
Board Width
Hardwood comes in a variety of widths from 2 ¼” to 5”, or even wider. The widths convey a sophisticated or casual look, and can be selected to coordinate with any décor you choose for your room.

Board Thickness
All Contract Carpet One floors are created from quality materials, and are engineered to last. When making your selection, look for our Titanium and Platinum labeled floors, which are among strongest in the industry. These flooring options also carry our highest-level warranty.

Trim Options
The addition of a trim can give your floor the perfect finish. Crafted from the finest grains of hardwood, our moldings are developed to coordinate perfectly with your new floor.

Choosing the perfect hardwood flooring

If you think you simply choose hardwood and are then done with the process, we have good news. There are actually many more options that allow you to create a truly unique flooring style for your home. The added benefits make it a fun and beneficial experience, even if it is a bit more daunting than some.

You’ll first get to choose a species, with harder varieties offering the most stability, endurance, and resistance to constant foot traffic. After the species, you can choose the perfect stain color, ranging from clear to extremely dark. Finally, you’ll get to add the perfect finish to your floors, and this will also be determined by a variety of factors. While a glossy shine will always be in style, finishes such as distressed or hand scraped will go a long way in hiding many of the signs of everyday wear and tear.

The floors of a lifetime

Everyone knows that the lifespan of hardwood flooring has always been impressive. The main reason for this is that solid wood can be refinished several times before needing to be replaced, with a few decades in between each. With the right maintenance and upkeep, these floors can easily last 100 years, with some historic homes boasting wood floors that are nearing the 200-year mark.
