Decide the style and look you are trying to achieve with your new wood floor.
This is usually determined by the architectural style of the building and its décor. Do you want a light colored floor to brighten the room or a darker rich toned wood to add a touch of elegance.
To achieve a country or colonial theme you may choose to utilize a lower grade of wood which contains more color variation and natural wood characteristics. To achieve a more contemporary theme, a select and better grade, which is more uniform and consistent in color, is usually preferred.
Once you decide the theme you are trying to achieve, then you are ready to narrow down the choices of product you should be most interested in.
Next, determine the type of product you are able to use based on your subfloor construction.
