Whether you’re installing hardwood into your kitchen, living room, or bedrooms, you will find the right style for you.

Why Use Hardwood Flooring?

If you’re unsure of what type of flooring to have in any room other than the kitchen, bathrooms, or entryways (if water seeps between the boards, it will cause discoloration and warping. Plus, water-damaged boards can harbor mold and mildew.), hardwood flooring Scottsdale is a fantastic option.

Able To Be Refinished

Hardwood floors may be susceptible to damage, especially if you have pets, kids, and company, but they harbor the ability to be buffed and refinished years and years later to look like the day you installed them. What other types of flooring can do that?


Wood floors do not capture dust, dander, pollen, and other allergy-causing elements that build up in your home. Dust mites feed off of carpet flooring, rugs, and other fiber choices, and remain trapped in the carpet. Hardwood flooring Scottsdale has the ability to repel most allergens including pollen and pet dander. If you have little ones who spend time on the floor, you’ll appreciate how easy it is to sanitize hardwood and keep it germ-free.


Hardwood flooring Scottsdale is a great choice for active homes and can last a lifetime if properly installed and maintained. To clean, simply use a dust mop or vacuum to remove dirt, dust, pet hair and other debris that could scratch the floor. If vacuuming is more your forte, just be sure to use a soft floor-brush attachment in order to protect your floors from scratches. The trick is to protect your floors from day one with the use of coasters under your furniture and mats in your entryways. As long as you wipe up any sort of liquid quickly, most hardwood won’t discolor.

The Best Rooms for Hardwood Flooring Scottsdale

  • Living Room: Hardwood conveys the lifestyle that homeowners appreciate sharing while hosting gatherings of family and friends in the living room. Even if you don’t have a no-shoes policy when entertaining, it holds up nicely in traffic. The occasional oopsie spill won’t be a problem if it’s cleaned up right away.
  • Dining room: Whether your dining room is formal or casual, there is a hardwood flooring type that will complement the décor while also providing long-term durability. Soft padding on the foot of your chair and table decreases noise while also protecting the hardwood surface.
  • Den: A peaceful and warm atmosphere for unwinding with a book, casual chat, or a favorite program is created with hardwood flooring accentuated with a wide, comfortable rug. Setting your bookcase on top of hardwood flooring is safe, and as long as you don’t spill wine on the floor, it will likely stay stain-free. 
  • Master suite: Resisting the need to repeat our remarks about the home office, we’ll just state the obvious: hardwood is rich, inviting, and romantic. A boudoir takes shape when you add a toe-snuggling rug, a love seat, and Barry White music.

Rooms to Avoid Hardwood Flooring

  • Bathroom: The nemesis of your floor is water. The consequences of putting these two in the same room will not be beautiful, and neither will the repair or replacement expense. If you take a chance and go with hardwood in the bathroom, expect to have to replace and repair your flooring frequently. 
  • Laundry room: You can guarantee that your clothes washer will never leak if you never toss wet towels on the floor, never hang clothing to dry, and never spill liquid detergent or cleaning solutions… Oh, and here’s the big one: if you like to party in your laundry room, go with laminate or tile. Please!

Types of Hardwood

  • Meranti
  • American White Oak
  • Sapele
  • Western Red Cedar
  • Ash
  • European Oak
  • Maple
  • Beech


Meranti is a Southeast Asian hardwood that is arguably the most widespread and frequently utilized of all. Meranti is likely to be used in the construction of your home’s wooden front door. It may be used for doors, skirting boards, architraves, flooring, picture frames, window frames, furniture, conservatories, moldings, carving, paneling, veneers, and it can also be used to face exterior grade plywoods. Meranti is stainable, polishable, waxable, oiled, and varnishable. It is weather-resistant and may be used both within and externally.

American White Oak

Over the last several years, the popularity of American White Oak has skyrocketed. It is an American plant that is most typically cultivated in the Eastern United States, as its name indicates. It’s also cultivated in Canada’s south-eastern provinces. It should only be used internally since moist, wet circumstances cause it to react negatively. It may be used for skirting boards, architraves, flooring, picture frames, furniture building, moldings, and paneling and has good machining qualities. American White Oak is a popular choice for veneers on sheet materials including plywood and MDF sheets, which are commonly used in furniture and cabinet construction. It’s also a popular choice for inside door veneering. If it’s utilized in its solid condition, it’ll last a long time. 


Sapele is a species native to Africa’s western and central regions. Sapele is a machining-friendly material that may be utilized both inside and externally. Sapele is used in the building of skirting boards, architraves, flooring, picture frames, furniture, moldings, doors, conservatories, and paneling. Sapele is a popular choice for veneers on sheet materials including plywood and MDF sheets, which are commonly used in furniture and cabinet construction. Sapele hardwoods can be dyed, polished, waxed, oiled, and varnished to provide a variety of looks.

Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar is native to the Pacific’s northwestern regions. Cedar, while being classified as hardwood, has a delicate texture. It works well in the machine and may be used to make furniture, roof shingles (wooden roof tiles), and interior and exterior cladding. Cedar is a long-lasting wood that doesn’t require any treatment before being utilized outside. If left untreated, however, it will lose its red color over time and develop a silvery grey color. It’s extensively utilized on the outside of buildings as cladding. Cedar was utilized as the basis for drawers in cabinets and the backs of closets before the chipboard and MDF revolution took over conventional furniture manufacture. 


Ash is a common tree in North America and Canada. Ash is a soft, brittle wood that is usually reserved for indoor use. Furniture manufacturing, sports equipment, flooring, interior usage on boat building, shopfitting, veneers, and high-end woodwork are among its applications. It can be found as a veneer on plywood and MDF sheets. Staining, polishing, waxing, ointing, and varnishing ash are all options.

The European Oak

European Oak is a tree that may be found in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and other European nations. It is a hard and durable wood with great machining properties. Both inside and externally, European Oak can be employed. It’s used to make furniture, doors, windows, skirting, architraves, moldings, flooring, doors, boat construction, gates, and fencing, and it’s the most common wood used in coffins. It’s a common choice for structural application in bigger sizes and may be used for floor joists, roof purlins, and supports. The interior beams that make up the structure of antique barns, churches, and other structures are almost often Hardwoods of European Oak. We supply conservation organizations with this species on a regular basis.


Maple is a popular tree in Eastern North America and Canada. Maple is a soft, brittle wood that is usually reserved for indoor use. Handles for chisels and other tools, skirting boards, architraves, furniture fabrication, sporting equipment, flooring, interior usage on boat construction, shop fitting, veneers, and high-end woodwork are all examples of its applications. It also comes as a veneer for plywood and MDF sheets.


Beech is a hardwood species native to the United Kingdom and Central Europe. Because beech is a perishable wood, it should only be utilized inside. It’s ideal for flooring, furniture, workbenches, desktops, tables, and worktops, as well as high-end carpentry. It’s also used on plywood and MDF sheets as a veneer. Staining, polishing, waxing, ointing, and varnishing beech are all options.

Prefinished vs Finished on Site

Prefinished hardwood flooring has been finished – sanded, stained, and coated with polyurethane — in a factory. All you need to do is install it (cut and nail it to the subfloor) and it is done. Unfinished flooring is raw hardwood that must first be installed and then sanded and refinished on site. Both have their advantages.


  • Saves time: Once prefinished flooring is installed, you can walk on it and put furniture on it immediately.
  • Less mess: Prefinished eliminates having sanding done in your home, although there are helpful tools that virtually remove the dust left behind in your home.
  • No smell: Because the flooring was prefinished in a factory, you won’t have to worry about any chemical smells in your home, although there are oils now that contain very little to no VOCs.

Prefinished Scottsdale hardwood flooring is finished individually, therefore when laid out, this creates a beveled edge along each side of the board. This creates a floor that is not totally flat, and each board will have a visible line in between it.

Finished on Site

  • The appearance: There is nothing that compares to flooring that has been sanded and treated by a flooring artist.
  • Can match existing flooring in your home: You will be able to exactly match the species of wood, and we can play with stains and colors on the unfinished wood to exactly match your current hardwood floor.
  • Cleaning: Dirt and dust can get caught in the prefinished grooves of your floor, whereas wood flooring that is finished on site is completely flat, making cleaning much easier.

Either option of hardwood flooring Scottsdale is a great option for you, it just depends on your preference and what works best for your lifestyle. If you have any questions feel free to contact us for your no-obligation consultation. You have the option to visit our showroom as well.

Cleaning Hardwood Floors 

Not all hardwood floors require the same degree of maintenance. Examine how much traffic your floors receive first, and then devise a cleaning timetable that makes sense. Hardwood floors should be swept at least once a week and wet cleaned every one to two months, as a general guideline (more or less frequently, depending on traffic). When it’s time to clean, take the following steps: Use Hardwood floor cleaners to wet-clean surface-treated flooring. Spray a small 3-foot by 3-foot area with the cleaner and use a microfiber mop to pick up any dissolved dirt. 

Clean one tiny section at a time as you work your way around the entire floor. If you find a place that requires a fast touch-up, clean it with a moist paper towel and dry it. 

Spills are unavoidable, but allowing them to dry on the floor dulls the polish and attracts more grime. Spills should be blotted as soon as possible with an absorbent cloth. Remove any remaining residue with a moist paper towel and buff dry.
