Hardwood floors come in a dizzying array of colors, finishes and styles. Fine Floors by Ed White will help you select just the right flooring for your property to create a look from formal to unique. A variety of wood flooring is now available from Fine Floors by Ed White, so you can enjoy the beauty and warmth of hardwood floors virtually anywhere in your home or business. Read on to discover more about our wood flooring types and trends.

Types of Wood Flooring 

  • Distressed - For a rustic and more informal look, distressed wood flooring offer a popular "shabby chic" look. This wood flooring has been intentionally distressed with chains, nails and staples to reflect the look of a well-worn floor. This style also keeps nicks and scratches hidden and less noticeable - perfect for active areas.
  • Hand Scraped - Full of character and texture, hand scraped wood flooring has waves running through the length of each board that range in appearance from pronounced to subtle, creating a very unique look. Hand scraped wood is more forgiving when it comes to everyday scrapes and scuffs.
  • Exotic - Move over Cherry and Oak. As the name suggests, exotic wood flooring is made of wood species from around the world. Sturdy and durable, with distinctive characteristics, exotic wood flooring gives character and elegance to any room. The color and patina of exotic wood flooring becomes richer and darker with exposure to sunlight. For this reason we suggest rearranging rugs and furniture from time to time so that all areas are exposed to sunlight.

  • High Variation - In this style, the hardwood floor receives a clear stain so that the natural appearance of the wood flooring is highlighted. This results in boards that may range in shades from light to dark, creating a mismatched look. High variation wood flooring creates a look that is both beautiful and entirely unique.

Trends in Wood Flooring

  • Environmentally Friendly - As going green becomes more and more popular, many people are looking for alternative methods to building and redesigning their home. Cork and bamboo floors are very popular, eco-friendly choices for a beautiful home. Both cork and bamboo floors are made without cutting down trees. If you want a natural floor that is environmentally friendly, consider cork or bamboo wood flooring.
  • Coordinated Moldings - Available in every style and color, coordinated molding is a fast-growing trend for hardwood floors. Molding provides a seamless transition from the floor to your wall or doorway threshold. There are also special moldings for your hardwood stairs and transitions from hardwood flooring to other floors such as tile or marble.
  • Scuff Resistant - Thanks to modern technology, some hardwood flooring, like distressed wood flooring, can be finished to be more scuff resistant. Tougher, more durable wood flooring means you can enjoy the beauty of wood floors in high traffic areas without having to worry about scuffs and scratches.
  • Moisture Durable - Not that long ago, hardwood floors could only be installed in areas that were not susceptible to moisture. Now, certain types of engineered woods are finished with a moisture-cure urethane to produce tougher, more durable wood flooring.
