Wood Flooring Installation Methods

One of the great things about wood flooring, aside from the stunning appearance, is the installation. You have a few installation choices depending on your subfloor and the type of wood floor you choose. Here's a quick look at the installation methods:

Nail Down – With this option, the floor is nailed directly into a wood subfloor.

Glue Down – You can glue down most engineered wood to a properly treated concrete subfloor or wood subfloor.

Float – Floating flooring comes two ways: You can either click and lock the planks together, like with Kahrs flooring, or glue together the planks at the tongue and groove – where they fit together. The finished product "floats" over the underlayment – similar to the way a dance floor works.

Charlie's Picks - Lighting

My next pick is lighting. It's and easy change that can update the look of any room. There are literally thousands of choices to choose from, some cost effective choices I suggest looking at first are from Progress Lighting and Kichler Lighting. Check out our image gallery and online store.

If you are hardwiring a new fixture, to be safe turn off the MAIN breaker first. Sometimes lights aren't wired to the room they say they are in the breaker box!

Satin and Brushed Nickel finishes are quite popular with interior decorators right now. For a complete updated look, think about switching out door handles and hardware to match the finish with lighting fixtures. You might want to think about coordinating plumbing fixtures in bathrooms, too.

If you decide to change the door hardware to match, Satin Stainless finish is very similar in appearance, you might not notice the difference unless you know look for it. I always recommend satin stainless door hardware, as it holds up better to corrosion.
