Contemporary Hardwood Floors

Contemporary Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors have become a popular choice among homeowners for several compelling reasons. They offer a timeless and elegant look that can complement a wide range of interior design styles, from traditional to modern. Here are some key benefits of choosing contemporary hardwood floors:

  • Durability: Hardwood floors are known for their longevity and can last for generations with proper care.
  • Easy Maintenance: These floors are relatively easy to clean and require minimal maintenance to keep them looking their best.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Unlike carpeting, hardwood floors don't trap allergens, making them a great choice for allergy sufferers.
  • Timeless Appeal: The classic beauty of hardwood never goes out of style and can increase the value of your home.

Choosing the Right Contemporary Hardwood Floors

Before diving into the installation process, it's essential to select the perfect hardwood flooring for your space. At Barefoot Flooring, we offer an extensive range of contemporary hardwood options, including various species, finishes, and widths. Here are some factors to consider when choosing your hardwood floors:

  • Wood Species: Different wood species, such as oak, maple, cherry, and walnut, have unique grain patterns and colors. Select a species that matches your aesthetic preferences.
  • Finish: Choose between a matte, semi-gloss, or glossy finish based on your desired level of shine and sheen.
  • Width: The width of the planks can dramatically affect the overall look of your floors. Wider planks are ideal for a modern, open feel, while narrower planks can provide a traditional look.
  • Color: Consider the color scheme of your room and choose a hardwood shade that complements it. Lighter woods can make a space appear more spacious, while darker woods add warmth and coziness.

Preparing for Installation

Once you've made your selection, it's time to prepare for the installation of your contemporary hardwood floors. Proper preparation ensures a smooth and successful installation process. Here are some essential steps:

  1. Measure Your Space: Accurate measurements are crucial to determine the quantity of hardwood flooring needed. Our team can assist you in measuring your space to avoid ordering too much or too little material.
  2. Subfloor Inspection: Ensure that your subfloor is in good condition and level. Any irregularities or damage should be addressed before installation.
  3. Acclimation: Allow your hardwood flooring to acclimate to your home's environment by storing it in the room where it will be installed for at least 48 hours. This helps prevent expansion or contraction after installation.
  4. Move Furniture: Clear the area of furniture and other obstacles to provide a clean and open workspace for the installation team.
