When choosing your hardwood flooring, it's important that you pick a species that is suited for the level of traffic you'll have in the space being covered. For example, if you have a large amount of traffic through your foyer, living spaces or kitchen, make sure to choose a wood species that's dense enough to handle it. On the other hand, if you're flooring a bedroom that has little to no traffic, you can use a much softer wood, and wind up with the same life span length.
Another important fact about this flooring is to make sure it isn't installed in below grade spaces. This means no hardwood in the basement. For spaces like that, speak with your flooring specialist about engineered wood, which can be placed where solid wood cannot. It's still real wood, it just doesn't react to the elements in the same way.
Refinishing is a major bonus for hardwood flooring. When most people are considering the purchase of new flooring, you'll only just be getting ready to have yours refinished. You can even push back the inevitable, by choosing a finish that works to hide many of the signs of everyday wear and tear, such as hand scraped or distressed.
