1. Choose Your Style
The first step in the process is to narrow down what kind of look you want. Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. The styles, wood types and finishes available are endless. Are you looking for unfinished or will you be installing prefinished hardwood floors? Do you want wide or thin planks, walnut, oak, pine or bamboo?
Once you’ve picked, you’ll need to decide how you will lay the floor down. While most people choose a straight pattern, herringbone and diagonals are options and you’ll have to have a clear idea of your layout before you measure and order your boards.
