Whichever type of wood you choose can affect the overall atmosphere of your space. Light woods like ash and maple tend to make rooms feel more open and airy, while medium woods like oak and hickory add coziness and warmth. Dark woods, such as walnut and mahogany, add an air of refinement and tradition.
Less widely available species work great for upscale and low-traffic properties. Although exotics like teak, mesquite and jarrah look incredible, they do not always suit the needs of today’s home or commercial property owners. But you can still achieve a similar look through more widely available woods, such as oak. We are happy to show you how, by giving special consideration to the floors’ plank size, color and finish.
Tri Point Flooring’s expert installers can finish unfinished floors on-site with premixed or custom hardwood floor stain or we can install factory finished, or pre-finished hardwood planks. We help you decide on the best option according to each method’s pros and cons. For example, on-site, or unfinished wood flooring takes more time during installation and creates some noise and dust. Pre-finished flooring
whether it be engineered or solid wood flooring
limits customization options as there are but so many stain colors within each brand's flooring collections. However, it certainly makes installation much quicker and easier.
You also have options for your wood finishes. If you prefer a shiny appearance, choose gloss finish that reflects more light. For just a bit of shine, semi-gloss cuts down on glare and reflection but still looks clean and fresh. A satin or matte finish reflects even less light, but provides the benefit of reduced appearance of wear and scratches. All of these finishes provide the same floor protection, so you only need to make the choice according to the overall look you want to achieve.
