Choosing hardwood floors isn't as simple as just making the decision to pick it above all other materials. Once you make the decision for wood flooring, you're actually just beginning the process. There are many other factors to consider, and it is well worth putting in the time to make sure you get just what you want, and just what suits your needs.

We are more than happy to assist you every step of the way, until you are actually walking on those beautiful new floors. We service the areas of Puyallup, Tacoma, Sumner, Bonney Lake, and Spanaway. We would like to invite you to stop by our showroom, located in Puyallup, to speak with a flooring professional who will be standing by to answer all your questions.
The hardwood species you choose to go with will determine the durability and overall performance. Of course, you need to match the species with the traffic level in your home. For instance, if you're looking to cover the flooring in your entrance, or the room in which people gather the most, you'll want something that can stand up to that amount of traffic. For areas like these, the harder the wood, the better.
For other areas that see very little traffic, you can go with a softer wood and still get a good lifespan out of the product. However, you will want to use protection under furniture legs, and make use of area rugs to cut down on contact with dirt and debris.
