Flooring America Offers Detailed Guidance to Help Customers Select Hardwood Floors

Installing hardwood can add value and beauty to a home. However, choosing the wrong type of hardwood is a common mistake that leads to unsatisfactory results. Flooring America offers extensive knowledge on selecting hardwood flooring in Springfield, IL, for confident buying. 

The rich tones, unique grains, and stunning characteristics of hardwood floors provide varied results within the home. Traditional strip flooring creates the illusion of more space in a room, and ranges in thickness and width. Wider plank flooring displays rustic designs, and offers a historical or antique look. Handscraped floors are custom textured to provide clients with a truly unique appearance. These tend to resemble reclaimed or aged wood, while offering the benefits of today’s strong urethane finishes. Wire-brushed flooring is similar, but the distressed application is less pronounced.

The overall look and feel of hardwood floors is also affected by the level of shine. Matte finish with a low sheen works best in heavy traffic areas, and high gloss finish provides formal design elements.  Different hardwood options like this are available in a range of wood species, guaranteeing the desired appearance, performance, and price. Wood species now available at the Flooring America flooring store in Springfield, IL, include:

  • Beech
  • Cherry
  • Hickory
  • Maple
  • Oak
  • Pecan
  • Walnut
  • Exotic Imports

Each of these wood species offers a unique level of durability and strength. In addition to choosing the right species, customers also have multiple choices for the edge of their floors. Smooth, flat square edges are common for strips or planks. Micro bevel edges contain a small indentation felt by fingertips. Full bevel is an additional option. This edge focuses attention on grain lines with its deep groove.  

Developments in technology make below or above grade installation of hardwood floors in any residential space, even basements, and commercial buildings long-lasting. The latest manufacturing methods entail the bonding of several wood layers, which prevents shrinking or bowing in rooms prone to experiencing moisture.

The hardwood flooring showcased at Flooring America is categorized based on what spaces and structures each product is suitable for. With all of these hardwood options in mind, the store’s knowledgeable flooring associates are prepared to help potential customers navigate the extensive selection and make a purchase with the utmost confidence.
