7 September 2011
Preparing to take your first steps into the world of wooden flooring can be a very daunting time, as whereas wooden flooring choices were quite limited in the past, there are now many types to choose from. And, when you’re presented with such choice, it can be difficult to know what exactly you should be looking for.
Here are a few considerations which you should make which could help though….
Will flooring be subjected to a lot of foot traffic?
If flooring will be subjected to a lot of foot traffic, you’ll need to invest in a very durable wood to prevent it from getting easily damaged. This will narrow your options down.
Light or dark?
Light and dark wooden flooring can look equally as beautiful, although by considering foot traffic and suitability, and your overall preference, you can again narrow your options down.
Think about cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning and maintaining your wooden flooring on a regular basis is essential, although some woods may require more attention than others, so do bear this in mind.
These considerations can prove really handy in helping you to come to the best wooden flooring decision.
