Character and Feel

The first thing to keep in mind is the species of wood and the finish you’d like it to have. There are many different woods that can be chosen. Whether your style is a classic and timeless wood like oak or an exotic and modern species such as teak, there is a wood that will suit your tastes and help create the gorgeous floors of your dreams. And after you’ve chosen a wood, your finish can help define the overall style. Different tones or washes can help so much that they can take a room from one style to another or elevate the entire interior design. To read more, click here!

Style and Size

The installation style and plank size of the wood is another key factor when choosing your wood floors. With an endless amount of styles, the way that you want your hardwood floors to lay can really let your personality shine through. Additionally, trends for hardwood floor plank size change more often than you’d think and the width of planks can be the difference between your home having a traditional feel or a modern one.
