Wood Floors Are Beautiful

Wood floors add to the beauty and sophistication of any house to a great extent. These floors have a different aura about them and can make even a really dull interior decoration look good. The floors are long lasting and can be maintained with very little strain on one's pocket. The variety of wood floors allows people to pick and choose. The floors are of different types like the following: 1.

Solid Parquet Floor 3/4 tum & less 2. Engineered Floor ? Strip, Plank, Parquet 3. Solid Plank Floor 3/4 tum * 3 tum and up 4. Solid Strip Floor ? T & G up to tum up to 3/4 tum Wood floors can be unfinished, prefinished, impregnated or multiply.

This kind of floors need to be installed in the rooms. According to personal choice, installations can be floated, glued, or nailed/stapled. Floated or glued installations can be laminated or engineered. But the nailed/stapled installation cannot be laminated.

It can be engineered. Wood floors are a lifetime and more importantly, one time investment. They enhance the value of the house, but definitely do not make the consumer go through recurring costs.

These floors are easy to maintain. Just sweeping and cleaning with the specific products for this purpose is enough. Mopping with a damp broom or cloth should be avoided as water can harm the floor. Most floor manufacturers have specific cleaning products for the consumer.

The entire house can have wood floors but it is always a good idea to leave the bathroom aside. Floors and walls create a basic feel about a room. For example, grey walls create a melancholy feel in a room, again pink or lemon or sea green walls gives a much more cheerful and positive feel. This is something intangible, difficult to explain with words.

The the same goes for floors. These floors offer the consumers a great deal of variety in colour. Interior decoration will demand any pattern or colour, but generally red oak, natural, maple natural are very popular. It is better to remember that darker floors go well with traditional or formal interior decoration.

Lighter colours are suitable for more casual rooms. Exotic wood like Brazilian Cherry, Brazilian Walnut, Santos Mahogany have gained acceptance. However the type of floor in the room will always be dictated by individual taste and needs. Hand painted wood floors add something special to the room and have become very popular.

It is possible to have the floors painted, stained, tinted to have the desired effect. Painted floors give an impression of being a designer one by using different techniques. Those who want wooden floors in their house should keep some points in mind: What areas of the home will have the floors, which colours to choose and what kind of finish? But it is a good idea to have the advice from a floor professional. It will help the consumers from becoming too confused about the nitty-gritty of the thing.
