I am starting my research to find
the best hardwood floors
for my future office.
At the moment,
the door is closed on this…
once playroom-turned dog-room….
…turned disaster room!
For those of you who missed that Weekend Pupdate,
Rosie was a little destructive that week!
I had planned on switching the carpet
for hardwood floors eventually.
But thanks to Rosie,
I am working on that a little sooner!
I am just undecided about what type of floors to put in there.
I know I want solid hardwood, pre-finished.
I don’t want the unfinished and then have to deal with
the fumes from finishing them on-site.
I need something that will stand up to a dog running around.
So a strong hard wood would be great.
I have heard that hickory is durable.
Although, I want a type that doesn’t vary in color all over.
I think I have seen some hickory that is all the same tone.
I want a light to medium color,
but something that won’t fade.
I have the Bruce Hardwood in Gunstock
in my living room and dining room.
Over the 13 years we have lived there,
there has been some fading issues.
Take a look under this rug…
How awful is that?!!
(I’d love to finish or replace this too!)
If I had plantation shutters like I had wanted in those two rooms,
this fading might not have happened.
So, not having plantation shutters
actually cost us money instead of saving us money!
Yes, my husband is just loving that argument!
any advice on hardwoods would be greatly appreciated.
Are there any brands you have been happy with?
Do you recommend a type of wood?
Thanks for your input!
