Pine flooring is made of soft wood that increases in beauty as it ages. While not as popular in Calgary as it was 100 years ago, pine is an affordable option that can add a unique distressed look to your home or office. At Floor Coverings International Calgary, we carry a great selection of hardwood flooring; including pine!
What Does Pine Flooring Look Like?
Pine hardwood flooring is known for its dramatic knots and color variation. These floors are perfect for homeowners looking to recreate a rustic or farmhouse look. They are the ideal wood material for artisan hand scraping as they are softer than other domestic hardwoods.
Southern yellow pine has warm butterscotch hues that add a unique touch to any room. White pine, another popular choice, is reminiscent of Early American homes. It’s the perfect complement to historic settings with old-fashioned décor.
How Do I Get The Most Out Of My Pine Floors?
If you like pine flooring but want to control the amount of distress your floor receives, applying additional sealer may help. You can also find many beautiful laminate options that mix the beauty of pine with the strength and durability of modern laminate flooring. Engineered hardwood is another popular and durable option!
How Do I Get Started?
Pine flooring can be sold prefinished, it is more typically sold unfinished. This lets you choose how light or dark to stain and finish it for ultimate customization. Because it’s so soft, installing pine flooring can be easier than harder wood materials. It’s still a job best left to the professionals, however. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International Calgary help you find pine hardwood flooring that’s just right for you and your home. Contact us today to schedule your free in-home estimate.
