This was a job we completed for some friends of ours looking for Maple Wood Floors in Encinitas. They actually lived in Colorado which made for a very interesting selection process. Fortunately, we had a good rapport with them and they had confidence in our expertise and ability to find just the right product for this home. After exchanging e-mails, text messages, photos, letters, and samples, we had an idea of what they wanted. We stained the wood and they were able to look at and approve the color while they were in town visiting Legoland.
Here are some pictures of the home before the installation of the new flooring.
The living room had carpet the homeowners were eager to remove.
The kitchen and dining had old, outdated vinyl composition tiles.
This bedroom had well worn wood flooring, probably original to the house.
Here are photos of new solid 3 1/4″ maple select flooring.
The floor was a perfect choice for this cozy bungalow just a stone’s throw away from the water in the easy going beach town of Encinitas.
Maple wood has a clean, tight grain. Though it can be difficult to stain, in the hands of capable craftsman, beautiful, varied shades can be created using unfinished maple. Even natural maple is appealing. There are different grades available for maple. From clear grade for a very clean, contemporary look to common grade which has a more rustic appearance due to more knots, mineral streaks, and wider shade variation. Whatever your aesthetic preferences, there is a maple floor perfect for your home. There are numerous styles and colors available in prefinished, engineered products as well. Come by or give us a call if you think a new maple wood floor would work for your home.
