Choose Heart Pine Flooring

heart pine flooring
Heart pines have a slightly different character from just any pine flooring. For starters, it’s a 1225 on the Janka scale of wood hardness (red oak is 1290). The very characteristics that make it the strength of the tree contribute to making it a great looking floor. There’s extra character and depth of the wood grain not found in all pine flooring. It has a closed, mostly straight, grain with an uneven texture, varying with the different pine species.


Why choose this kind of flooring?

Pine Wood Flooring – The Best in Business

pine wood flooring
Pine flooring has been the foundation, if you’ll excuse the pun, of flooring for centuries. It comes and goes in popularity, but it’s always a good basic choice for your home or office. Most frequently it’s left in its natural color, but it can be stained either to look like another wood (cherry, mahogany and walnut, for example) or to make a fashion statement with its off-color (an office I worked in once stained the wood to look purplish to blend with the color scheme). It’s a soft wood so is susceptible to damage, but that damage adds to the ageless beauty associated with pine flooring.


Why choose this kind of flooring?


Many people enjoy the “cabin” look in their homes because it brings back memories of a warm and comfortable time spending time in a cabin or lodge. Selecting Pine Wood flooring is an essential part of that look because it can make any home or room look more inviting and welcoming. It is readily available and is slightly less expensive than many of the other wood flooring options that you have. It is always great to find a wood flooring option that looks great and helps to add value and interest to your home and pine flooring can do this and more.
