One of the factors citing by many homeowners when choosing hardwood flooring is the extensive lifespan it offers. Some materials can easily reach 100 years of service in your home, while others go even longer than that. Choosing the proper species is one way to make sure your floors reach their expected lifespan. Rated on a Janka scale of soft to hard, more active households will require a harder solid wood material.
In addition to choosing the right Janka rating and species for your flooring, putting a good finish on it can add to its life expectancy as well. The high-gloss look, for example, creates a remarkable decor-matching space, but it’s hard to fend off signs of wear once it’s in place. Instead, choose a finish such as hand-scraped, vintage, distressed, or wire brushed. All of these options tend to hide eyesores such as scuffing, scratching, and water spots. You’ll be left with a floor covering that looks good much longer than you expected it to.
Hardwood flooring gives you plenty of stain color options as well. Depending on the type of finish you choose, you might have a species that holds stain much better than others. On the other hand, you can also choose a wood that has such a gorgeous natural color that you will only need a clear coat.
