Top 3 Hardwood Floor Textures

Posted on: July 6th, 2022 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

Best hardwood floor textures

The textures of a hardwood floor can add a lot to a décor. It can accentuate the elegance or add to the warmth of a more casual setting. A variety of hardwood flooring textures are available on the market.

Let’s take a look at the top 3

Smooth

Nature’s classic elegance, expressed simply.

A very delicate sanding gives wood a silky texture with classic allure while highlighting the grain. Smooth is a timeless texture that is still the most popular in hardwood flooring.

Open grain

The uniqueness of wood shines through

Every wood species is unique, and this is what makes the material so warm and rich. A species’ cellular structure influences its appearance and, in some cases, its texture as a hardwood floor.

Open-grain woods may appear coarser than closed-grain woods because the surface isn’t as smooth. When the wood is sawn, the pores are split, creating beautiful little rifts and valleys. This open-grain pattern stands out even more when dark stain is applied, but is still noticeable with lighter shades.

Hand Scraped

Uniquely perfect imperfection

Hand Scraped texture, sometime called “Wave”, ranges from subtle to extreme, and from repetitive to more authentic pattern, depending on the method used and the desired end result.

Remember that each manufacturer has its own Hand Scraped process, so one manufacturer’s Hand Scraped flooring will look different from the others’.

Plus you should NOT expect your delivered flooring to look exactly like the small sample you saw at a flooring retail store. The beauty of real hand scraped flooring is that it’s meant to look antiqued, so no two pieces will be exactly the same.

While this texture is ideal for rustic décors, it also creates a nice contrast in modern rooms and adds casual appeal to traditional settings.

Remodel at low cost

Posted on: June 15th, 2022 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

How to remodel at low cost?

If you are looking to remodel at low cost. Painting the floor can be the cheapest and fastest solution you can use to have a floor remodel.

If your economy does not allow you to change floors, choosing to paint the one that is already there is an excellent idea. The advantages are incredible and it will save you money.

Achieve amplitude or reduction, painted floors can deceive the eye.
Painted floors can create some clever optical illusions. If you have white or light-colored walls, paint the floors to match to make the space feel much larger.

Choose paint with a brighter gloss or add a gloss top coat to bring in more light. Or, choose a color that is darker than the walls and ceiling to visually cement a space and add drama. They are infinitely customizable.

On the other hand, painted floors do not need to be solid. Use painter’s tape to create painted checkerboards, patterns, borders, or “rugs.” You can also delineate the space by painting areas in different shades. The effectiveness of this option is that it gives freedom to the imagination, achieving dazzling finishes with just customization.

Painting floors is cheap

Compared to the cost of laying a whole new floor, painting old floors is incredibly inexpensive: all you need is a gallon or a few of paint, depending on the size to be painted, plus primer and supplies.

And over time… Worry about the wear it may have, the solution is simple just add more paint.

No need to worry too much about wear and tear. When your floors start to lose their shine, simply add another coat of paint, or a few touch-ups, and you’ll be back to a like-new floor.

Painted hardwood floors are most often associated with seaside cottages, where they originated for their uncomplicated practicality, but painting can be done not only on hardwood floors but also on tile, concrete, plywood, and even linoleum.

I did not wait any longer, nor did I spend more with professionals, you will be able to have a flat like new with a low investment.

Wood flooring trends for 2022

Posted on: January 31st, 2022 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

4 Wood flooring trends for 2022

Trends for 2022 to get inspired for your next remodel project!

In 2021, numerous hardwood flooring trends have emerged that are a continuation of the design trends seen in the past.

No matter how much appeal nearly all forms of hardwood have, however, there’s always a few standout types of wood flooring that emerge each year. These trending flooring styles capture people’s imaginations and grow quickly in popularity once introduced.

Check out these wood flooring trends for 2022; to get inspired for your next remodel project:

1. Rich, Varied Colors

Floors are getting bolder in terms of color and style, and that includes hardwoods. While many hardwood floors have some amounts of subtle variation in them, newer trends are turning this up a notch. This means either utilizing a hardwood that has a naturally wild and bold grain, or that features a blend of different colors and hardwood species together.

One way to get this look is to use a reclaimed wood blend. Blends pull differently sized planks and different wood tones, then finish them together for a cohesive look.

Use a blend with rich variation like this one in sunny areas that can really let the colors show.

2. Smokey Wood Floor Tones

The color gray swept through the interior design world a few years ago; and no area of the home or office has been left untouched. This year, another trendy gray look is sweeping through the interior design world.

Smokey toned floors offer additional drama and character to solid hardwood floors. These floors have a unique look to them that’s very appealing.

Almost any type of wood species can go through the process of creating a smokey look. These hardwoods get their color without having to apply stain. The wood planks are placed in a chamber where ammonia is released into the air. The wood reacts to the ammonia which causes the color change. Overall, the process gives the wood a dark tone and enhances the natural grain of the wood.

3. Bleached or Whitewashed Floors

For contemporary spaces, you can’t go wrong with a smooth, light, wide plank hardwood floor. Hardwoods naturally darken and develop a patina as they age. But, a floor that’s been whitewashed takes on an entirely new look that’s very appealing in modern design trends.

Lighter wood tones help to brighten up a space and bleached or whitewashed wood tones create a relaxed and rustic atmosphere in a home.

The process for bleaching a wood floor involves adding a chemical solution to the wood surface to remove the color or stain. Whitewashing will give wood a white look while still showcasing the natural wood grain.

4. Rustic Textures

Rustic floors have a lot of allure. They call to mind nature and natural textures and surfaces, which in turn have a calming effect on the viewer.

How to safe your hardwood floor in Christmas

Posted on: December 13th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

With Christmas approaching it is worth thinking about how to protect your hardwood floors from the weather.

Protect your wooden floor from winter weather

Winter weather can be harsh and impossible to avoid. The main problems that you may be faced with are dirt, grit, debris and water being brought in from outside.

Hardwood floors can easily be scratched and damaged by grit and salt that is used to protect the streets and pavements from freezing weather.

There is also the issue of snow, slush and rainwater being brought onto your hardwood floor from outdoor footwear.

To minimise any damage to your hardwood floor, follow these steps:

  1.  Put doormats at all entrances to your house. These will help to catch any unwanted grit, dirt and debris from outdoors.
  2.  Remove outdoor footwear before walking on your wooden floor. Ideally these should be left in a porch or garage and not directly on your hardwood floor.
  3.  Sweep and clean your wooden floor regularly to remove any dirt or debris that has crept onto your floors.
  4.  If you have pets, clean and dry their paws as soon as they come inside.

Protect your wooden floor from your Christmas tree

If you are having a real Christmas tree this year then there are two main things to watch out for.

Real Christmas trees are inevitably going to lose some needles, so ensure you sweep around the tree on a regular/daily basis to reduce the chances of people walking on them and dragging them across the floor.

If you are having an artificial tree this year then be aware that most artificial Christmas trees have a metal or plastic stand that can scratch your hardwood flooring. It is advisable to place a floor covering, such as a mat or rug, underneath your tree to prevent any unwanted damage to your flooring.

Gray hardwood floors: A trend or a tradition?

Posted on: July 27th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

Gray hardwood floors: A trend or a tradition?

Gray hardwood floors are hella cool. But are they a passing style trend, or are they here for the long run?

The grayer and less brown that you go, the more your wood floor will skew toward a modern, contemporary style. If your home and furniture are more traditional but you want to modernize things a bit, I would suggest more of a brown / grey or a medium brown stain with a slight gray undertone.

Benefits

Grey floors are easier to keep clean than dark brown hardwood floors because they show less dust.

Lighter gray floors can make a room feel open and airy, while darker gray stains can visually reduce the space.

Dark gray floors do make for a dramatic contrast with light-colored walls, and dark gray hardwood floors also provide a perfect backdrop for brightly colored furniture and accents, such as red or teal. Gold and honey tones also complement dark gray hardwood floors.

Gray hardwood floors can look contemporary and sleek, or warm and rustic depending on the grade of wood (see Different Grades of Hardwood Flooring) and shade of gray chosen.

Grey floors have more of an urban, modern look…think funky furniture or minimalist contemporary styles. Turquoise and sky blue work very well with gray, and also white can be very striking depending on the shade of gray.

All pastel colors are lovely with gray tones, and really pop against the cool contrast of a gray wood floor.

Do you have an urban style?

Gray floors will work very well with an industrial-themed décor or concrete walls. Think exposed duct work or pipes, metal furniture, exposed brick…gray hardwood floors of medium to darker grays work very well with this type of style.

Wide plank grey floors of any shade are a fantastic base for a very modern or minimalist style. Simple, compact furniture looks great on top of wide plank floors. Thin metal or wooden legs on furniture are very striking on top of wide planks.

Personal taste is unique to you! At the end of the day, if you just love gray floors, you will love them with any décor. Make sure to pick a reputable contractor. Grey floors are not easy to achieve…the sanding must be perfect and the color is not an easy one to apply evenly. Grey floors are very striking and cool. All your friends will compliment you on your awesome, unique style.

Summertime hardwood floor tips

Posted on: July 19th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

4 Summertime hardwood floor tips

How does the song go? “Summertime and the livin’ is easy.” Well, maybe not for your hardwood floors. Summer can be challenging for hardwood floors.

Here are 4 tips to help your hardwoods handle the heat and humidity.

1. MINIMIZE DIRECT EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT

Too much direct sunlight can cause your hardwoods to fade and discolor. Try to close blinds and draw shades or curtains to prevent unnecessary exposure. If your room faces east, for example, don’t open your blinds until the afternoon. This will also help protect furniture and other items in your room from fading.

2. WATCH INDOOR HUMIDITY LEVELS

Too much or too little humidity in the air in your home will affect your wood floors. That’s because wood is naturally porous and expands and contracts with changes in moisture in its environment. Dry air makes wood shrink and humid air makes it swell.

Outside air in the summertime has more humidity. But air conditioners remove humidity from the air. So your home can have too much or too little moisture in the air. Some seasonal shrinking or expanding of your floors will happen, but it’s best to try to keep the humidity level in your home between 30% and 50%.You can purchase a hygrometer at your local home improvement store to find out what your humidity level is.

3. KIDS, GUESTS, AND PETS BRING THE OUTSIDE IN ALL SUMMER

In the warmer months people come and go from inside to out and back again dozens of times a day And with them comes dirt, dust, and grime from outside. Dust and grime can build up and scratch your floor. Sweep or vacuum the high-traffic areas a little more often during summer months to keep the dirt and scratching to a minimum.

4. POOLS AND SPRINKLERS MEAN WATER DAMAGE

If you have a pool, or your neighbor has a pool, or if your kids like to break out the water games and sprinkler, make sure you have a plan for all of those wet feet, swimsuits, and towels. If your bathroom floor is hardwood, be extra diligent about checking for wet items on the floor. You may want to put a basket in the corner to collect wet towels and suits, and flip flops.

Tips for Wood Flooring in the Kitchen

Posted on: June 11th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

5 Things to Know Before Putting Wood Flooring in the Kitchen

Learn why wood flooring in the kitchen is a growing trend—and the secrets to successful installation and maintenance to keep your wood looking good.

It’s hard to beat the natural beauty of wood flooring, but it’s not a traditional choice for a kitchen; due to the greater risk of damage from water and traffic in this room. Yet wood flooring is currently trending in today’s kitchens, so if you’re considering it for your home you’ll want to be informed about species options, installation, and maintenance to reduce the possibility of damage.

1. Learn why wood is trending.

In addition to its good looks, wood is becoming popular flooring for the cook space so as to create a visually seamless surface between the kitchen and an adjacent dining room or a great room. Many homeowners preferable this cohesive look to the start-and-stop feel of different flooring in adjacent rooms. Additionally, wood has a warm, soft sensation underfoot, unlike ceramic or porcelain tile; which can be uncomfortably cold on bare feet or on a crawling infant’s knees. Because the kitchen is such a busy, spill-prone area, however, it’s important to consider the potential downsides of wood before installing it in this room.

2. Remember: Wood and water don’t mix.

When wood becomes saturated, it can swell, warp, or even split—so even a small dishwasher leak that goes undetected for some time can damage a section of a hardwood floor. A splash here and there, however, especially if it’s wiped up quickly, poses less risk. Consider your family’s habits. If spills are rare and you’re vigilant about the state of your kitchen appliances, a hardwood kitchen floor should hold up just fine—as long as you give it a polyurethane sealant every four to six years to maintain a high level of water resistance.

3. Go the hard way.

The number of attractive wood flooring options at your local home improvement store can be confusing. So be sure to select a species that’s hardy enough to withstand the high-impact traffic typical of kitchens. Everyday comings and goings in street shoes, as well as movement of chairs and stools, could scratch or dent a wood floor. Pulling a major appliance away from the wall so a technician can work on it can also mar wood flooring, leaving deep scratches. (Fortunately, there are some effective ways to repair scratches on wood floors; but these often only minimize their appearance and rather than make your wood floors 100 percent again.)

4. Let wood acclimate.

Whether you enlist a professional contractor or have the skills to put down the floor yourself; the wood must be allowed to acclimate to your home before installation for best results. Most wood flooring is stored boxed in unheated warehouses, where the climate is often quite different from the temperature and humidity of residences. If you install wood flooring before it acclimates, it could swell or shrink slightly and your floor could end up with gaps between the planks. Acclimation involves cross-stacking the boxes of planks in your home for anywhere from one to three weeks, depending on species. Recommended acclimation periods can be found in the manufacturer’s installation and warranty information.

5. Take good care.

Whether you choose to put in a new wood floor in your kitchen; or you’ve moved into a house where it’s already installed, the following care and maintenance tips will help you keep it looking good.

  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Use a soft cotton dust mop to clean away crumbs and pet dander. If you prefer to sweep, use a broom with soft rubber bristles that won’t scratch the floor’s finish.
  • Don’t use a steam floor cleaner, which could damage the finish.
  • Put soft furniture pads on the bottoms of kitchen tables and chairs to keep them from scratching or denting the wood floor.
  • Check frequently under the sink and around the dishwasher and fridge for signs of leaking. If you discover a leak, shut off the water to the kitchen and call a plumber.
  • Use rugs and floor mats liberally to protect the wood flooring in high traffic areas. Rugs will also absorb small spills before they can reach the flooring.
  • If you must move the dishwasher, stove or fridge; place a sheet of thin plywood on the floor and slide the appliance onto the plywood instead of sliding it across the wood floor.

The best Flooring for your Lifestyle

Posted on: May 25th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

SELECTING THE BEST FLOORING FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE

In this post, we highlight a few aspects to keep in mind when choosing flooring, including your lifestyle, budget and more.

  • Pet owners should consider modern vinyl and laminates for scratch-resistant wear and water-resistant or waterproof flooring.
  • Install waterproof or water-resistant flooring such as vinyl plank, tile, or sheet vinyl in rooms with high foot traffic.
  • Climate plays a part in certain floor materials, making an engineered option more suitable.
  • Replacing carpet with a hard flooring surface alleviates allergens.
  • Numerous flooring brands offer environmentally-friendly products for green-conscious households.
  • The subfloor can determine what type of flooring you can install and whether you need an attached pad or additional underlayment.

Do you have pets?

If you want to install hardwood flooring, one or two small pets won’t alleviate the option; but if you have large or multiple pets, you may want to consider a vinyl or laminate product. These floors have scratch resistant wear layers for durability that hold up to everyday wear and tear from your pets’ nails and playful activity. Modern vinyl and laminate floors have the same visuals as hardwood floors including distressed, wire brushed, and rustic wood styles, or earthy, natural patterns. So, you can still have the look you want; but the function that you need (and less worry about damage to your floors!).

Do you have children?

Consider the ages and activity level of your children. Are they active in sports and bring home muddy or heavy equipment every day?

If you have a dedicated area for those items, such as a mudroom or entryway, consider using a durable, waterproof or water resistant product for that space. If you think these items will make their way all over the house, you may want to choose a super durable, yet beautiful vinyl plank, tile or sheet product that will stand up to years of activity, for your entire home. Not only are luxury vinyl floors easy to clean and maintain; but the large range of color and style options available in realistic wood, stone and tile patterns will surprise you!

Do your family members have allergies?

Hard surface flooring is a much better choice over any carpet product to alleviate allergy symptoms and triggers. Hardwood, vinyl, and laminate products can be safely and thoroughly cleaned frequently with the peace of mind that there are no hidden dust mites or mold lurking beneath the surface.

Where are you installing your new flooring?

All Wood Floor Planet of flooring, including hardwood, can be used in any space in your home. It is the collections within each flooring type that offer the diversity of installation for basements, concrete slabs and/or less than perfect subfloor conditions.

Where do you live?

The climate in which you live can limit your hardwood selections. Avoid wide plank, solid only hardwood collections if you live in a very humid, southern region of the US. Although gluing and nailing these products can alleviate some cupping and crowning; an engineered option may be available in the same visual and will result in a much more stable installation.

With today’s options in flooring, it is very easy to find the look that you want with the functionality that you need.

Are you environmentally friendly?

Many families today take steps to recycle and bring reusable bags to the grocery store to promote a healthier earth. But when it comes to your home, did you know you can choose a green-friendly flooring option?

Wood Floor Planet offers numerous flooring options from manufacturers who undergo strict procedures and rules to gain certification status. Some of the environmental commitments from our brands ensure that the wood is gathered from sustainable forests.

How to take care of my wooden floors

Posted on: April 5th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

How to maintain and clean my wooden floor

Wooden floors are elegant, beautiful and timeless and can last for decades if looked after properly. Most types of wooden flooring are reasonably durable and hardwearing. However, they will still need caring for and protecting from damage. Looking after any type of wooden floor is easy and straight forward if you follow the advice below.

How to maintain and protect my wooden floor

An important part of maintaining the beauty of any wooden floor is to protect it from unwanted damage. One of the most important things to remember is to wipe away any spills immediately.

The top layers of lacquer or oil will protect your floor initially, but if the liquid is left to soak into the wood then it can cause irreparable damage.

Another way to maintain your flooring is to protect it from scratches and dents. Small marks and indentations are inevitable, but there are things that you can do to prevent deeper, larger scratches.

Firstly, remove footwear before walking on your wooden floor. Outdoor footwear is likely to have dirt and grit on the bottom that can easily scratch your floor if walked on. Ideally leave shoes and boots in a porch, garage or cupboard, but alternatively you could have a door mat or shoe rack. If you notice any stones or grit on your wooden floor, remove them straight away.

You will also want to prevent furniture or heavy objects from scratching your floor. Always pick up heavy objects to move them, rather than dragging them across the floor.

You can use anti scratch felt protector pads. These can be applied to the bottom of furniture and act as a soft barrier between the wooden floor and heavy object.

How to clean my wooden floor

Cleaning your wooden floor is straight forward. All you need to do is sweep the surface of the floor with a soft bristle brush. We would recommend that you do this everyday to remove any small surface dirt or dust. You can also use a vacuum cleaner but will need to make sure that you have the correct attachments for a wooden floor.

Once your floor has been swept, you can then clean it to remove any surface stains or marks. This only needs to be done about once a week, or when you notice any surface stains.

To clean your floor, we would recommend using a microfibre mop and PH neutral cleaning spray. This will be gentle but effective on your wooden floor. Try to clean in the direction of the grain. You should never use furniture polish as this will leave a slippery residue. Also, never use a steam mop. The steam will penetrate into the wooden floor and can cause damage over time.

Can I sand and re-finish my wooden floor?

Yes, you can refinish your wooden floor. This can help to revive and refresh your floor and can remove unwanted marks and stains. There are a few options available, but they depend upon what type of floor you have and why you want to refinish your floor.

If your wooden floor has an oiled finish, and you want to reduce the look of small scratches then you can apply more oil to the floor. Firstly, you will need to thoroughly clean your floor. Then apply another layer of oil. This will need to be left to dry for the appropriate amount of time before replacing furniture and walking on it. It will brighten and refresh your wooden floor.

If your wooden floor has a lacquered finish, and you want to reduce the look of small scratches then you can lightly sand the surface and then apply more lacquer. The finished look will be a fresh and revived wooden floor.

If you have large, deep dents or scratches then you may need a deep sand and then refinish with oil or lacquer. For any type of refinishing, we would recommend using a wooden flooring specialist.

Top tips for maintaining and cleaning wooden floors

Wipe away water spills immediately.
Remove footwear before walking on your floor.
Use felt protector pads and never drag heavy objects across the floor.
Sweep away dust and dirt on a daily basis.
Clean your floor using a microfibre mop and wooden floor cleaning spray.
Never use a steam mop, wet mop, furniture polish or abrasive products.

Laminate Doesn’t Contaminate The Air

This is because they are completely sealed from the outside which eliminates the possibility of any particles becoming airborne and affecting your health.
