Each of the forms of wood that is available to your new flooring has distinct properties. Some woods are more difficult than others and they all differ in color. Depending on what area you are thinking of having hardwood flooring will determine the toughest of the wood you may require. For example, rooms which encounter a large amount of traffic such as hallways, kitchens and living rooms would be ideal for getting walnut, ash or walnut hardwood flooring.
However, in rooms such as bedrooms or dining rooms where there is very little footfall, you can get away with a milder wood like cherry or beech wood.
It is always a good idea to speak with a hardwood flooring expert to discuss your requirements and requirements before having the hardwood flooring installed. This will ensure that you are making the perfect decision in regards to your new flooring.
