When it comes to hardwood floors, there are many choices to consider. What type of wood is best for your home? What color should you choose? What style should you go with? The options can be overwhelming! Never fear. We’re here to help. Here are some of our top hardwood recommendations for every room in your home.


Living Room

The living room is one of the most important spaces in your home. It’s where you entertain guests, spend time with family, and unwind after a long day. We recommend a classic look when choosing hardwood floors for your living room. A traditional hardwood like oak or maple will never go out of style and will make your living room warm and inviting. Try a hand-scraped or distressed hardwood if you want something a little more unique. These rustic finishes have more character and will give your living room a one-of-a-kind look.



Bedrooms are where you should feel relaxed and at ease. They’re your oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Therefore, we recommend choosing soft hardwood like pine or cedar for your bedroom flooring. These woods have a warm, natural look that will help you feel cozy and comfortable. Avoid darker hardwoods like walnut or mahogany, as they can make smaller spaces feel cramped and claustrophobic. 



The kitchen is one of the most heavily used rooms in your home, so in choosing hardwood floors for this space, durability is key. A more complicated wood like hickory or bamboo will withstand everyday wear and tear. You’ll want to avoid lighter woods like pine, as heavy furniture or appliances can easily scratch and dent them. If you’re looking for a unique twist on traditional hardwood floors, try using reclaimed wood in your kitchen. Reclaimed wood has all the beauty of traditional hardwoods with the bonus of being eco-friendly! 


If you are only choosing hardwood floors for a specific room in your house, the recommendations above will help you find the perfect flooring! However, if you plan to install hardwoods throughout your entire home, or for one level of your home, it is best to use the same hardwood for uniformity.
