Unsurprisingly, Fedco Floor Services gets a lot of requests for hardwood flooring installations. We also have a lot of customers who express an interest in hardwood before choosing a synthetic alternative for their Columbus home’s flooring.
Hardwood has a unique charm that is difficult to replicate. Certain laminates and vinyl floors come close, though. And for some customers at Fedco Floor Services, they end up being slightly preferable to hardwood because they are more resistant to scratching and scuffing.
Still, we recognize that it’s a trade-off. Sometimes, the practical choice just isn’t what you want. In those cases, we like to remind customers that following your heart doesn’t need to be impractical. There are ways to outfit a Columbus home with hardwood flooring while still staving off visible damage.
The solution may be as simple as choosing the right grain and finish. Hardwood flooring is by no means one-size-fits-all. And some varieties have a lot more texture than others. These tend to hide wear-and-tear much better.
Even if heavily-textured wood isn’t your first choice, Fedco Floor Services can help you to mix-and-match when designing your layout. Some customers place a more textured hardwood in the most heavily trafficked or damage-prone of a home, while leaving a more pristine finish in other areas. The two different looks can actually create a beautiful contrast for each other.
Along similar lines, you can even mix-and-match entirely different types of flooring on offer at Fedco Floor Services.
We’ve previously discussed some of the ways in which the same space can be outfitted with different flooring, depending on the form and function of each room. If the look of each room calls for hardwood, but you’re worried about it getting beaten up in some areas, there’s no reason why you can’t install hardwood in most areas while also cheating a little and interweaving laminates here and there.
Don’t worry if that’s the approach you take. At Fedco Floor Services, we’ll share all of our secrets regarding Columbus flooring solutions. But we won’t tell anyone yours.
