With a number of technology advances throughout the hardwood flooring industry, it is easier than you think to have a customized installation of hardwood flooring within your home. There is a wide assortment of wood species along with patterns, stains and finishes – leaving a huge decision up to you as a homeowner. Customization could pertain to any of the following: laminate flooring, different species, specialty designs, appearance of character, variety of brands and different styles.
However, this is not the only way you can customize your installation as you can also have medallions created – pre-manufactured or custom – to add an extremely distinctive look to the room. Medallions can also be used with existing hardwood flooring as they are generally routed into the wood after installation. Borders are also a popular way to enhance the overall look of a room and hardwood flooring. Borders are commonly used to “separate” two joined rooms or are typically used to frame a room.
Apart from medallions and borders, a much more common trend within the industry and among homeowners is the art of distressed and/or hand-scraped flooring. These provide a very unique yet antique appearance that a number of homeowners are drawn to especially those with old-fashioned Victorian homes. Distressing techniques include using tools such as chains, chisels and wire brushes to create a very unique look that no one else has in their home nor will any wood planks in your home be the same.
