Make sure your hardwood floors are shining in your Kansas City home. We don’t mean just cleaning them. How you stain and lay hardwood floors can make a huge difference in the appearance and feel of your home. It can either draw attention to your floors or distract from it. These ideas will make hardwood floors shine and stand out in your home if you are a huge hardwood floor fan.
DIFFERENT SIZE BOARDS CAN BE USE IN DIFFERENT ROOMS
Many homeowners find that different rooms have different styles and feel. Your flooring selections can make this distinction even more obvious. You can show the difference by changing the shape and size of your hardwood planks in different rooms. Wider planks will give you a more casual feel. You can choose narrower boards for a more formal look.
ANGLE BOARDS IN ROOMS DIFFERENTLY
Angle the planks of hardwood in different directions to vary the mood in each room. Open floor plans can be made more distinct by creating a space between the family room and the kitchen. Also, you might consider changing the angle at which the planks are laid. This can visually break up rooms and add character to your home.
STAIN FLOOR BORDERS
This little trick will enhance the beauty of hardwood floors by adding elegance to the design. This makes the floors stand out. This will make your floors pop!

TOP 10 HARDEST WOODS
1. Quebracho – From the Spanish “quebrar hacha,” which literally means
“axe breaker.” Aptly named, wood in the Schinopsis genus is among the
heaviest and hardest in the world.
2. Lignum Vitae -Widely accepted as the hardest wood in the world–this
wood has been listed as an endangered species and is listed in CITES.
Consider Verawood as a very close substitute.
3. Gidgee – This Australian endemic is both very heavy and very strong.
Some pieces are dark enough to be used as an ebony substitute: one that’s
even harder than the original article.
4. Snakewood – It’s easy to see what makes Snakewood so unique–its patterns
and markings resemble the skin of a snake. Limited supply and high demand
make this one of the most expensive woods on eart.
5. Verawood – Sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, this wood is a gem:
inexpensive, great olive-green color, beautiful feathery grain pattern, and
it takes a great natural polish on the lathe.
6. Camelthorn – Formerly classified as a member of the Acacia genus, this
south African hardwood is a tough customer. The wood is stubbornly hard,
and the tree is protected by giant sharp thorns.
7. African Blackwood – In some parts of the world, this wood has achieved
an almost legendary status. Historical evidence points to this wood
(rather than Diospyros spp.) being the original “ebony.”
8. Black Ironwood – Pieces are very seldom seen for sale, as this tree is
too small to produce commercially viable lumber. Like the unrelated
Desert Ironwood, Black Ironwood is an excellent choice for small
9. Katalox / Wamara – Some pieces can be just about a dark as true ebony,
while others are a more reddish brown with black streaks. So much depth
in the Swartzia genus, there’s something for everyone!
10. Cebil- Also known as Curupay or by the exaggerated name Patagonian
Rosewood, Cebil is not a true rosewood. It has a highly variable streaked
appearance not too unlike Goncalo Alves.
