Admiring your wooden floor the way it is
With so many finishing options available to those who have recently had a wooden floor installed in one or more rooms of their home, it is quite easy to get caught up in it all and fail to appreciate the floor as it already is.
While most people either purchase pre-finished wooden boards or arrange for the finish to be applied after, you might wish to leave it as it is and really show off the natural beauty of the wood. This will accentuate the unique markings of the tree it was cut from and provide a distinct charm.
The suggestion above is not for everyone as this will usually require greater devotion in terms of maintaining the floor, due to the greater risk of soiling. The surface will need to be swept down very regularly to remove any dust or dirt that might have built up during the installation process.
However, as long as it is kept tidy, you’ll be able to sit back, relax and admire the rustic, authentic look that the unfinished wood offers.
As you might have guessed, this is the simplest and quickest way of finishing the flooring, while giving you a number of visual benefits too.
There is nothing wrong with whichever type of finish you prefer, as long as you respect the wood and make the most of this beautiful natural flooring choice.
