There are many hardwood options to choose from, but if you’re looking for one that is as lovely as it is historic, pine may be your match. Known for its rustic beauty, pine is a durable and unique hardwood that is an affordable option for your Winston Salem home. Here is an overview of pine hardwood from the experts at Floor Coverings International Triad to help you decide if it’s the right fit.

Appearance

Pine flooring is a softwood that increases in beauty as it ages. Its colors range from nearly white, golden yellow, and rich reds and browns. Southern yellow pine has warm butterscotch hues that add a unique touch to any room. White pine, another popular choice, is reminiscent of Early American homes. Pine is most sought after for its prominent grain, pinholes, and knots. As it ages, it develops visible wear and patina that many consider part of the appeal.

Maintenance

Like any hardwood, regular sweeping and vacuuming are essential to minimize scratches on the finish. With softwoods like pine, it is even more important. Due to its nature of showing wear, pine will need refinishing and sealing every few years to control the amount of distress visible on the wood. Caution is necessary when moving furniture across the floor as it will scratch easily.

Considerations

Pine is a very durable hardwood. There are pine floors installed 100 years ago that are still in use today. However, as we mentioned, it is one that ages over time and its beauty come from its distressed appearance. If you are someone who prefers a pristine hardwood look, pine floors will not be right for your home.
