It is not right to say all the wooden flooring will increase your property value. You must do it right. Doing right includes the proper choice of quality materials, having expert installation, and selecting the suitable wood color to give an aesthetic look to your property.
This module is going to walk you through how to choose the best wood floor colour along with some tips for choosing the right material.
Choosing the right material for your wooden flooring is like laying the foundation strong for your building where the building is your wooden flooring. The life span of the wooden flooring purely depends on the quality of wood that you choose which includes its hardness. Many types of research tell that the hardness of the wood is determined by the amount of force needed to drive a 0.444-inch diameter steel ball to a depth of half the ball’s diameter. The amount of force it takes is measured in pounds-force (IBF) and this becomes the hardness of the wood. To be precise and clear, the higher the rating, the harder the wooden floor. Strand-woven bamboo wood and eucalyptus wood has the top rating of 4000-5000. The wood of Douglas Fir is at the bottom with a rating of 690.
Red Oak is the benchmark because it carries a rating of 1290 which means it balances durability along with low maintenance. If there are small children and pets in your house, you will need a harder wooden flooring. You must also keep in mind that harder flooring is not always the best. The cost of installation is also high because it takes time to drive screws and nails into it.
When you’re deciding the colour of the wood, the material of the wood matters. For example, when you choose oaks, it provides a lighter color but when you choose bamboo, it is a tad darker. You must also never forget that the engineering, manufacturing, and finishing of the wooden flooring will also affect the hardness of the material.
After knowing about the hardness of the material, you have to choose the color of the wooden flooring that you want. You must also keep in mind the size of the room and how much sunlight it gets.
The following are a few tips which will help you to choose the best color that suits your room.
Light colors for small rooms: If you are planning to install the wooden flooring to a small room, opt for light colors because light colors will automatically make your room look bigger. This is because the light color will make space seem airy and open. Two examples of light wooden flooring are off-white and beige hardwood.
Dark colors add sophistication: In recent years, darker colors and exotic woods have become a trend. As mentioned earlier, bamboo is an eco-friendly option if you’re opting for dark colors. To be precise, dark wood colors will add sophistication and elegance. But it is not suitable for all types of homes. They will make your room look smaller. But it is commonly found to be installed in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Consider the sunlight: Natural light can change the appearance of wooden flooring throughout the day. If you are installing wooden flooring in a room that receives a lot of sunlight, it will look different in the day time whereas it will look different at night time. UV rays can also damage your wooden flooring over time. In some woods, it will darken while in some, it will bleach. Never forget to ask your flooring specialist how sunlight will affect your wood. If your mind is set on a particular color, you can still control the sunlight exposure with proper window treatments.
After choosing the right wooden material, it will be easier for you to choose the right wooden floor color. It is as important as any other considerations to choose the best wood flooring expert like Bespoke wood flooringto enjoy long-lasting flooring.
