Homes with hardwood floors, whether new or old, are beautiful. Floors with dark rich looking wood or even those that are light colored are magnificent. Hardwood floors can give a house that look of being expensive or may give it that look of hominess. When decorating with Hardwood consider the color, species, grain visual, board width, board thickness, gloss level and the edge style. Also consider laying down an area rug to liven up your wood floors.
