Some of the advantages of unfinished hardwood flooring:
One of the major reasons homeowners choose to have unfinished hardwood flooring installed in their homes instead of some of the other options is that these floors are especially versatile and customizable. While it takes more time and effort to install and finish hardwood floors on-site, the results are worth the effort. Finishing on-site makes it possible to choose from a wide range of options with regard to color, style, stain, and finish.
Unfinished hardwood floors that are finished on-site turn out to be more uniform, stable and even because they are sanded, stained and finished right in your home.
Another big advantage of unfinished flooring is that you can have more control over the appearance of your wood by applying a wood stain before sealing the wood. This gives you the choice of many different colors for your floor, including those that are just not available in pre-finished flooring products.
Finishing hardwood flooring on-site also makes it easier to match the new wood floor, stain color and finish to an existing floor or any other interior colors of your home.
So, whether you like light or dark colors, satin or high-gloss finishes, with unfinished hardwood flooring, you can create a floor that reflects your own personal style, and that suits your interior space.
