Hardwood Floor Specialty Design Elements
Hardwood floors have come a long way in the past few decades. We have already discussed how new maintenance can keep your hardwood floor looking newer longer. But the years have made hardwood floor customization much easier as well as affordable. Create a unique one of a kind look for your St. Louis home by purchasing hardwood floor design upgrades like borders, hand distressing, medallions and more.
Exotic Hardwood Floors
Coming in a variety of colors and durability there are woods of every type available to customers today. If you are interested in a pink or red hue hardwood floor than you may want to consider Bubinga for your wood. Perhaps you are more interested in something with a purple tinge to it. In that case, you will want to examine Purpleheart from Mexico, which ages to a deep purple. If you are going for a rustic look, try Australian Cypress which is tougher and knottier than domestic pine. Bamboo is available which will really give your home an eco-friendly finish. There are literally a limitless (not really, but almost) supply of exotic hardwood floors options to choose from when you deal with Professional Floors of St. Louis.
Hand Distressed Hardwood Floors
If you are interested in a truly unique look for your St. Louis home then consider a hand distressed hardwood floor. This provides homeowners with an antiqued appearance that many people find appealing. While time and labor intensive, this customization technique will bring you a truly unique look.
Hardwood Floor Borders
Borders can be used to create a framing effect for a particular room or area. Typically this is performed with contrasting wood to make the effect more pronounced. Borders can incorporate not just different types, styles, and colors of wood but they can also use mixed media for further contrasting.
Mixed Media Hardwood Floors
For a unique, one of a kind look to your hardwood floor consider contrasting the wood with any number of materials including stone, tile, marble, leather, slate, or metal.
Hardwood Floor Medallions
Medallions typically incorporate multiple species of wood to create patterned contrasts. For more customization and contrasting St. Louis customers can request a mixed media medallion for their hardwood floor. Professional Floors of St. Louis will work with homeowners to ensure they achieve the proper affect for their medallion pattern.

Once you start considering paint as a customization option for you hardwood floor you are truly only limited to what your imagination can come up with.
Hardwood Floor Stains
