I am frozen in fear!
fickle as the day is long!
Plain ole STUCK!
I can't seem to decide on my floors...
so I am asking for your opinions!
Who else could help me...except for you!
You guys are awesome!
So here are a ton of pictures...in a couple of different rooms...but it is night...so you are seeing them with overhead lighting...and no natural lighting.
All the floors are numbered...
here is the list of what kind of wood they are...
1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 are all Hand Scraped Maple in different colors
4 is Hand Scraped Walnut
6 is an exotic smooth plank African Mahogany
7 is smooth plank Red Oak
9 is Hand Scraped Hickory
so please "vote" so to speak in your comment
Do you like the lighter shades...or darker???
Here are some of my thoughts...
the darker floors...are rich looking...but will they be too dark in my house?...will probably show dirt quicker??? Love them with the white trim...but my kitchen might be to dark.
the med tones...not as "rich" looking...kind of orangey looking...but won't make the house look as dark...won't show dust and footprints as quickly as the dark...
the smooth plank mahogany is an exotic...which means I could have more of an issue with shrinkage??? more formal looking??...we are not formal...but I like the color...maybe to reddish???
The oak floors...very traditional...maybe to boring...overused if you will...or maybe the safest bet??
I like the idea of Hand Scraped...they seem like the best choice to hide scratches or other mishaps, plus I just like the character...and that little bit of rustic.
I am driving my self crazy!!
Here you go...a ton of pictures!!
What do you think???
Not to sway you...but 8 and 9 are my least favorite...because from an angled distance...they just look too dark!
I have wanted hardwood floors for so long...who would have ever thought that I would have such a hard time picking them out???
Can't wait to hear from you!
