It’s a great way to see the places that make Jacksonville stand out.
How do you make your home stand out? After all, autumn is the time for “fall cleanup.” One way to make it stand out is with hardwood flooring, and in Jacksonville, there’s just one place to get it: About Floors ‘n More.
We all know the basics, such as the 3 main color shades, the undertones, contrast and highlighting, but let’s talk about some of the more popular types of hardwood flooring:
● Reclaimed Pine: If you really love that historical touch for your home, this might be for you. Most of it is reclaimed, or retrieved, from historical buildings, but you don’t only need to use it in a Colonial-type atmosphere. It can work just as well in a contemporary one. It has all those “quirky” knots and raised grains that can make medium tone hardwood flooring so interesting.
● Red Oak: One of the most popular choices, this one will work with any design. Add a level of contrast; if you have a big window, a beautiful sunset will really make those red undertones pop!
● Brazilian Cherry: One of the most exotic wood species, this flooring has a range of color undertones and patterns that give it almost a “mosaic” look. It’s gorgeous, durable and affordable.
● Eucalyptus: It adds style and grace to any design and, because it comes from the fast-growing eucalyptus tree, it can be considered eco-friendly. This is a dark hardwood flooring, so add some white accessories for contrast and elegance.
● Distressed wide plank: This is great if you want to give a room that rustic look (it works especially well in kitchens.) Plank is becoming more and more popular, probably because it doesn’t have as many seams.
