There are many wood flooring types to choose from that all possess their own charm. Checking the foundation under the flooring will help you narrow your search, as the heaviness of the flooring will need to be considered. You'll first need to decide if you want solid hardwood floors or engineered hardwood floors. Next, what species of wood best serves your space? Domestic species like maple and oak are typically more affordable than exotic ones. Exotic wood from around the world may create the perfect tone in a room. The finish of wood floors can either be smooth, distressed to create an antique look, or hand-scraped with long flat lines. Hardwood floors mostly come prefinished, though unfinished floors allow you to pick your own stain and sealant.
