Pine flooring is made of soft wood that increases in beauty as it ages. While not as popular as it was 100 years ago, pine is an affordable option that can add a unique distressed look to your home or office.

If you like pine flooring but want to control the amount of distress your floor receives, applying a sealer may help. You can also find many beautiful laminate options that mix the beauty of pine with the strength and durability of modern laminate flooring.

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. It’s the perfect complement to historic settings with old-fashioned décor.

Pine flooring is usually sold unfinished. This lets you choose how light or dark to stain it. Because it’s so soft, installing pine flooring can be easier than hardwood. It’s still a job best left to the professionals, however. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International Wheaton & Naperville help you find hardwood flooring that’s just right for you and your home or office.
