To begin with, hardwood flooring infuses a new life into our homes; they beautify the homes and add warmth and comfort to the homes. Hardwood flooring is mostly a product manufactured with timber and designed to be used as flooring, either structural or aesthetic. Wood is a common choice for flooring purposes in New England, Eastern Canada and Europe and comes in various styles, sizes, colors, cuts, and species. Solid hardwood floors are made of planks milled from a single piece of timber. They have a thicker wear surface and can be finished and sanded many times.
You can choose from a variety of hardwood flooring options available but the best three are:-
• Distressed wide Planks: It will add to the beauty of your home with the unique and rustic look and fewer seams. You can go for this if you want to recreate the authentic and aged appearance of the historical wood floors. The designing comes with foot worn boards, hand scraped edges and Saw Kerf marks for that ethnic look. Distressed wide plank flooring brings an instant charm to the home.
• Maple wood flooring: Maple wood flooring is to bring that extraordinary warmth and beauty in the homes. In maple wood flooring you can choose from stunning architectural designs. Wider planks make the rooms look bigger and spacious, and let you see more grain and growth. There are two wood options available- white maple wood flooring and brown maple wood flooring.
• Ebonized wood flooring: for adding that statement look to your home that you desire, this flooring option is the best suited. Ebonized wood flooring is gorgeous and easy to bring mood or element into space. The look of true dark wood shows off your furniture very well. Embolization is not painting the wood; rather it is a chemical reaction that makes the material turn black, benefiting opacity. When correctly ebonized, the wood becomes pitch black and you won’t be able to see grain or color later on.
There is a range of hardwood flooring installations available in the market:
• Tongue-and-groove: one side of the plank has tongue and another plank has a groove. They are joined to fit snugly. They can be joined by nail down, glue down or float.
• Click or wood lock system: it is almost similar to a tongue-and-groove installation, with the only difference that instead of fitting directly into the groove, the board is angled or tapped in to make the barbed or curved tongue fit into the modified groove.
• Glue down method: a fairly popular method for solid parquet flooring or concrete sub floors.
• Floating installations: In this hardwood installation type, the flooring is laid down in a glueless manner on top of a layer of underlay. The planks are locked together and not glued to allow the floor underlay to float.
• Floor connection system: in this system, there are grooves on all the four sides of the plank, with a separate unconnected piece that is inserted into the grooves of the two planks to join them. The connections are joined with wood, rubber or plastic.
Add that mesmerizing look to your home with these elegant hardwood flooring. You are going to love it for sure.
