Wooden flooring in Auckland homes has never been more popular. Wooden floors are the best option for any property, boasting benefits not offered by other flooring types; class, beauty, and style. This great long-term investment can be even greater if installed in the right places. To help you do that, here are some ‘Should’ve, Wood ’ve, Could’ve’ scenarios.
When people complain about faded and discoloured wooden floors, it’s often the sun to blame. When we install wooden floors in brightly lit rooms which boast large windows, we know the sun will shine directly onto the floor for prolonged periods. Over time, this will cause the polyurethane to fade or change colour; thanks to superior materials, this won’t be an issue for a while but it is just one of the scenarios you should consider.
Here’s another one to think about. Wooden floors in bathrooms are very popular, especially in older homes, but you need to take steps to reduce excess moisture and water damage. This can include an extra coat of polyurethane straight after the installation of the floors, but paying attention to ventilation will also help. We’ll happily advise you on the best way to approach a wooden floor in your bathroom.
High traffic areas also need to be considered when it comes to wooden flooring. These areas are where most people gather in your home, and it’s only natural you want them to see your wooden floors in all their glory; after all, why invest in such a beautiful feature if you can’t show it off? However, you might be worried about scratches and stains being caused by all those admiring people. This is another scenario we are used to, and our advice is to stay away from cheap and inferior floors and stick with premium installers and materials that can stand a lot of foot traffic.
