Hardwood is classic. Its beauty is unprecedented. Intricate patterns of wood grain make a home feel warmer and more natural. As a solid, hard-surface floor, hardwood both cleans well and stands the test of time.
Nowadays you can pretty much custom configure colour, board-width, species and grade to your liking. Choose a board width from 1 ½” to 7”+, a colour grade from bleach white to charcoal black, a domestic species from traditional Oak to characteristic Hickory, and a level of grain and colour variation from clean to rustic.
Texture is the 4th dimension. With modern milling methods, hardwood is now available in textured formats that add dimension to the hardwood’s surface: from the subtle undulations of ‘wire-brushed’ to the distinctive grooves of ‘hand-scraped.’ Bevels also vary from subtle to pronounced.
While hardwood always stands the test of time, durability and maintenance requirements vary from product to product. Consider the amount of traffic that your floor will determine and the maintenance schedule you are looking for.
