Hardwood flooring has beauty, strength, and character, along with options for every look. From smooth, glossy, traditional strips to wide, weathered planks, hardwood creates a beautiful backdrop for any style room. Today's hardwood floors are also milled and finished using techniques that require much lower maintenance than in years past. So you'll get the character you want in a floor that'll last. Choosing the perfect hardwood floor is more than just a design decision. It's about finding the harmony between aesthetics, durability, and your lifestyle.
Our Flooring Pro's have outlined 7 things you should consider when choosing hardwood flooring for your space.
Even the most robust hardwood floors from CarpetOne Floor and Home aren't immune to the occasional scuff or scratch, especially in bustling households. If your home is a hub of activity with children and pets, it's essential to opt for flooring designs that prioritize durability.
Here's a breakdown from our Pro's of the factors influencing the resilience of your hardwood floor:
1. Wood Type Matters: Every hardwood variety comes with its own durability rating. The inherent hardness of the wood determines its resistance to dents and wear. At CarpetOne, we pride ourselves on offering some of the toughest options, including Hickory, Oak, and Maple.
2. Protective Coating: Our hardwood flooring selections is treated with a specialized protective coat. We provide a range of protective finishes, ensuring your floor's longevity against scratches and stains. We pride ourselves on having some of the best hardwood flooring warranties in the industry, including coverage options for up to 50 years as well as life of the floor coverage on installation for all flooring types.

3. Finish and Texture: Our diverse range of hardwood floors includes both matte finishes and textured styles like the rustic hand-scraped look. These options not only add character but also excel in camouflaging daily wear and tear, unlike their smooth, glossy counterparts.
4. Embracing Water Resistance: While hardwood traditionally isn't synonymous with water resistance, CarpetOne challenges this notion. Our exclusive H2O is genuine wood floor that’s actually waterproof. Hardwood that has the H2O label is a perfect solution for modern living in beautiful style with an impressive variety of woods and colors.
