Wood flooring includes laying down pieces of timber to form a wooden floor. It offers a striking look and has been in existence for a long time. Wood flooring has withstood the test of time due to the classic look courtesy of its nature, durability, and eco-friendliness. When choosing custom wood flooring, select a wood species that best fits your needs—that is, one that has the perfect shade for your space and an appropriate design for your style. However, many wood options exist, and choosing the perfect one for your space can be challenging. If you're remodeling your space and you're considering wood flooring, here is a list of some of the best wood flooring options. 


Oak is used mainly for interior decorations because of its high performance. You can use it for traditional or modern designs since it can host different patterns and designs ranging from calm to expressive. The more mature the oak, the more golden it is.


Ash is perfect for high-strength applications since it is tough and resilient. It is hard and acquires a golden look with time. Its combination of light sapwood and dark heartwood produces a beautiful pattern with multiple shades. 


Beech's cell structure makes it strong and more durable than other woods. It has a uniform appearance and an elegant yellow shade that changes to red and golden over time. 


Walnut has soft characteristics that make it easy to work with. Walnut's color changes from light brown to dark chocolate as it ages. It gives the floor a solid character.


It is among the hardest light wood species and is highly resistant to wear. It has calm, even shades and texture with curly growth rings. When exposed to sunlight, its color gets darker and golden.

Learning All About Home Remodeling Projects

Hi there, I'm Edgar Elroy. I am excited to share my remodeling expertise through this website. Although this is not my profession, I have gained a lot of knowledge about remodeling materials, tools and techniques over the years. I recently hired a contractor to remodel my bathroom and kitchen areas for an updated look. The remodeling process took some extra time because I changed the plans in the middle of the project. Thankfully, my contractor was willing to adjust the bid to compensate for the changes. I would like to share information about remodeling from the bidding process to applying the paint. I hope you will learn a lot from the information on my site. Thanks.
