Choosing the Right Hardwood Flooring for Your Home
Choosing a hardwood floor can feel intimidating at times. Few decisions will have a more lasting impact on how your home looks, feels, and functions. Even though hardwood flooring doesn’t have the vast array of color and design options that carpet or tile has, there are still several factors to consider like species, grade, stain, size, construction, and the pattern/design of how the wood planks are installed inside your home.

Hardwood Flooring Species
Hardwood floors can be dramatic, elegant, rustic, classic, or modern. One of the first decisions to make is the type of hardwood species. Some of the most popular hardwood flooring species include:
- White oak
- Red oak
- Brazilian cherry
The next thing to consider is the color or stain. Some homeowners opt for a dark, dramatic look. Others want a light and airy feel or something modern and rustic. Another option is to keep the original color of the wood and just seal it. Over time, the wood color will alter slightly, often getting slightly deeper and richer depending on the species. Oil finishes, for instance, are a huge trend in hardwood flooring today.
Once you’ve chosen the color or stain of your hardwood floors, you’ll need to decide on the plank size and width. Typically, narrower plank sizes give a classic feel and make small rooms seem larger. Wider planks offer a more rustic, intimate feel. Finally, you’ll need to decide the shine of your hardwood flooring – very shiny, somewhat shiny, or matte.
