There are so many options to choose from when you are shopping for new floors for your Franklin Township home. Fortunately, our experts at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough can guide you through the process and highlight some flooring styles you may not have considered. For example, pine hardwood floors offer a warm, woodsy appearance for both traditional and contemporary homes. It also tends to be one of the more affordable options for hardwood flooring.
Pine floors come in a variety of widths and finishes. Traditional narrow plank flooring creates an elegant, classic finish to your home, while wide plank flooring has a rustic, country look that features the wood grain more prominently. Pine flooring is known for its warm, golden brown color and dark knots and swirls. You can also feature certain aspects of the wood with special stains and finishes, such as a rustic hand-scraped style.
When properly cared for, pine hardwood flooring can last for decades and stand up to the demands of a busy household. While vinyl and laminate flooring options begin to show their age after ten years or so, pine floors develop more character as they age. You can also have pine hardwood floors refinished if you decide you want a fresh look down the road.
Hardwood floors don’t require a lot of maintenance, but caring for them will certainly keep them looking new for many years. Sweeping removes surface dust and pet fur, while mopping with a wood cleaner on a regular basis keeps the surface looking smooth and glossy. Depending on the finish you select, an occasional reapplication of urethane or wax will freshen the wood’s appearance and extend its lifespan.
