If you need an excuse to shop, the one must-have decor item with hardwood flooring is a rug. It will perform double duty as a decorating piece and floor protector.
Installing wood flooring depends upon a number of things: which type of flooring you have chosen and what subfloor you have. There are many different options from floating over an underlay, gluing down, secret nailing or secret screwing. Just make sure your installation method is correct for your home and the particular flooring you have purchased.
As with any cleaning product, read the label before you buy to make sure it is suitable for the surface. A foolproof way to prevent damaging wood? Check out woodfloors.org, where a professional will help you choose the best product for floors that have different finishes.
All of our hardwood floors come with detailed fitting instructions. It is extremely important that you read these carefully before installing your floor. The instructions are there to help you to get the best possible results from your new wooden floor.
The reason you need to do this is to give your hardwood flooring space to expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. If you fail to leave an expansion gap your flooring will have no space to expand and can easily become damaged.
