Emily Morrow Home
NWFA: National Wood Flooring Association Emily Morrow Home @ Hardwood Floors: If you, or someone you know, are thinking about tackling some renovations to your home this're probably a little torn between "if, how much and where" to use carpet, hardwood floors or rugs...or a combination of each. The first things to ask yourself are how much of the legwork are you willing to do and whether or not you want to bring in the help of a professional. [ 1,832 more word ]

Wood floors have managed to outlast other types of flooring throughout history. My 1925 colonial had the original floors and held up. I removed the kitchen floors (about 4 layers) to find the original chestnut underneath. With proper sealing and care, Wood is warmer and easier on your body.
I just redid my kitchen in my new house (10 years old) and removed the tile from the kitchen and added wood floors to match the living room since it’s open concept.
My back loves me.
