About Pine Hardwood

This type of wood is used for a variety of purposes, including fences, doors, and flooring. It is incredibly affordable when compared to other types of flooring, but as mentioned before, it is not actually considered hardwood. Its strength and aesthetic appeal still hold up to other flooring types, including hardwoods. Most times, pine flooring is left in its natural color, but if you prefer, you can stain it to help ensure that it complements your home decor. Three of the most common types of stains that used on pine flooring are those that leave it looking like cherry, walnut, or mahogany color. Please note that even though pine flooring is extremely durable, it does not compare to the hardness of hardwood flooring. In fact, if your home has high levels of foot traffic, you may want to opt for a different flooring material.

Rustic Appeal

If you are looking for a type of flooring that helps enhance the rustic cabin-look of your home, then pine flooring will make for a great choice. It adds a warm and comfortable appeal to any room you have it installed in and is especially ideal for cabins and lodges. When compared to other types of wood flooring, pine flooring tends to be quite a bit cheaper for Downers Grove homeowners.

Overall Strength

The rapid growth rate of pine hardwood makes the wood softer. Because the wood is soft, it is more prone to scratches and dents when compared to actual hardwood flooring. Even so, it is less expensive to both purchase and install. Compared to other wood floor choices, it’s remarkably comfortable underfoot.
