Solid wood was one of the earliest materials used for construction of floors. Despite the advancements made in technology, it continues to be one of the most popular options amongst designers across the world for the simple reason that it offers unparalleled warmth and beauty. At BBK Direct, we offer high quality solid wood flooring for the people who love to keep things classic.
Your quick guide to choosing the right solid wood flooring
All solid hardwood floors evoke richness and charm within the home, but not every design and wood species are created equal. Here is a short guide to help you choose the right solid wood flooring for your home.
Timber flooring installation area:
The place you plan to install the flooring has a huge influence on the quality and features of wood you choose. If you plan to install the flooring at the ground floor, where it may interact with more water and moisture, you will need specially treated solid wood. If you are planning to install solid wood flooring on higher floors, make sure that your home's structure can bear the weight of solid wood.
The species of trees that the wood belongs to adds a distinct personality to the flooring with their unique color and gain patterns. Maple and oak are known for their hardness while Brazilian cherry and mahogany offer a lovely appearance. The harder the wood, the more durable it will be to scratches and tears.
The finish on the wood can have an impact on the color, feel and the durability of the flooring. A high quality finish provides a long lasting luster to the wood and factory applied finishes are always better than site-applied finishes. You may even invest in some wood finish to maintain the flooring and maximize its lifespan.
