Clean, sleek and easy to maintain, wood leaves a jaw-dropping impression in any room of your home or business. From elm, bamboo, pine, and exotics, wood has  quickly become one of the most popular flooring choices. It is also versatile, doing double duty with beauty and durability. To mix things up and add a bit of comfort and warmth for your feet, wood flooring can be nicely paired with area rugs.

Things to consider:

Hardwood, although beautiful, also has some sensitivity. Your new flooring may require some upkeep such as refinishing every third or fourth year, depending on the manufacturer and style. Scratches and dents are natural for wood, so expect to either fill or repair these. As well, wood is affected by humidity, or in Calgary’s case, a lack thereof. Be prepared to see gaps between the planks and consider installing a humidifier on your furnace system.

Hot item:

Consider investing in bamboo, a renewable resource that offers an assortment of styles and colours.
