The Type of Wood Floors Can Impact a Room’s Appearance


When purchasing hardwood floors there are several questions you should be asking yourself, such as “Which wood species and stains are right for me?” There is no right or wrong answer for this question, it is simply based off of your preference.

The shade of the wood flooring you choose will have an impact on the way your room looks:

• Light woods, like ash or maple, will make your room appear more open.
• By choosing a medium wood, such as hickory or oak, your home appears more warm and cozy.
• Lastly, walnut, mahogany or any other dark wood can make your home appear refined.

Take a look at all the different wood species provided by National Wood Flooring Association to see which best suits you! We are happy to help you determine which species and stain fits your home the best.
