September 1, 2020

Every home flooring requires a different kind of look and feel to it and the right way to have them installed is by picking the flooring designs that suit your home from the inside out. From the appearance, finish, durability to the setting of the wooden planks, all these factors must be thoroughly considered and evaluated as you pick a flooring to match the interiors of your humble abode. 

There are different kinds of floorings that you can choose from, all of which are mentioned below to help you upgrade and elevate the theme of your house.

1. Ash

Ash wooden floors come in a wide selection of shades from lighter to darker tones. When planning on giving your space a vintage and antique look, selecting this style of wood floors is best recommended. Ash is a harder type of wood so it can withstand abrasive environments to a greater extent and hence is suitable for areas in your house frequented by varying pressures and weights. 

Another fantastic aspect of ash wood flooring is its resistance to moisture and stains, which also ensures that any liquids and fluids spilled on the floor can be easily cleaned without the use of heavy-duty cleaners. 

2. Beech

Beech is another extremely sturdy wooden flooring that can withstand heavy weights with ease. It assures effortless cleaning that is easy to achieve with gentle cleaning liquids. Beech floors are also resistant to scratches and require minimal to no touch-ups or professional maintenance on a regular basis.

3. Birch

Birch is a type of hardwood flooring that lasts for many years after its installation. The structural integrity of the wood allows it to be dyed in a variety of tones and shades and can easily cater to the expectations of any decor theme. The wood naturally consists of highlights that are visually appealing and provide a unique look and finish to any space. 

4. Cherry

Cherry hardwood floors are a low maintenance flooring option and hence make an excellent candidate for outdoor installations. This quality can be attributed to its low permeance of dust or grime. Using this type of wood is suitable for both your interior as well as exterior decor.

5. Hard Maple

Maple is one of the most commonly used wooden floorings in public spaces, given its strength and longevity. Sweeping and mopping the floors regularly is sufficient to keep them clean. Hard maple is dust resistant by nature, ensuring better air quality and good health in the long run. 

6. Jarrah

Jarrah flooring will make your room look warmer, cozy, and inviting and can complement a grander variety of interior themes. It is naturally resistant to insects and durable in quality and can make an excellent long-lasting flooring option for you.

7. Jatoba

Jatoba, also known as Brazilian Cherry, is a strong type of wood that is highly resistant to many mechanical pressures. It is also beneficial in preventing any kind of infestation, one being termites. 

8. Oak

Oak is another kind of wood that is well adept for home flooring. It is resistant to stains and moisture, making it a great fit for kitchens and bathrooms. For the most optimal quality of oak, select one that is well-aged as it can give your home a rich and exquisite look. 

9. Walnut

Walnut floors fall under the category of highly durable wooden floorings that can transform your home when coupled with the right shine and finish. The texture of the wood is another desirable aspect that makes walnut floorings a popular choice.
