Choosing a Flooring Option for Your Home

The holidays are around the corner and if you are like me, you probably have unfinished projects around the house that need to be finished up before you are able to host those holiday parties. We have been in the middle of refinishing our den for awhile now and we were just discussing the need to finish it up in the next month or so before Thanksgiving and Christmas and the topic of flooring came up. Right now the den is only one of two rooms in our home that is carpet and to be honest, I'm not a real fan of it. The rest of the house is beautiful hardwood flooring so we have been looking for some different type of flooring and we were so impressed when we saw some of the options available on the market!

Engineered Walnut Flooring is a beautiful option that is becoming increasingly popular in homes today. Not only are the absolutely beautiful but they are a great investment that add value to your home as well. We don't plan on living in this house forever so we need to think about the future when we get ready to sell as well. With walnut being one of the most durable flooring options on the market, this would be a good option for us since our floors see a lot of traffic. 

Another option would be unfinished oak flooring. We currently have oak floors in our home but they were in really rough shape when we bought the house so we had to have them refinished when we moved in. We had them stripped down to bare oak and it gave us so many options on how to finish them. We ended up going with a beautiful cherry finish with a semi gloss on the top and they ended up absolutely beautiful. If we go with unfinished oak flooring, we can use the same stain and finish to make our den floors match the rest of our house which I think would be amazing. Below is a picture of one of the bedrooms in our home when the floors were unfinished so basically we had a blank canvas to do whatever we wanted with. 

After our den is finished, we have plans to refinish our kitchen but that is down the road for sure. There is no way we can tackle that before the holidays get here but it will definitely be a good project to start after the holidays!

  2. We chosen reclaimed oak wood flooring for our house! Easy to clean, good looking and hard wearing, wood is one of the dominant flooring materials of our age. You might think "used wood" would be inferior in quality to something freshly logged, but in truth reclaimed wood is often of a quality that is difficult to match by new wood also one of the pros is that you can feel good about using a product that is environmentally friendly. So go green and make wonders for your home. Thanks
