Welcome to our gallery featuring dazzling living rooms with natural light hardwood flooring.

Lumber has been used for a long time in the creation of homes. However, it wasn’t until the Middle Ages that hardwood flooring actually came around. Hardwood flooring only belonged to nobility during that time, and if you were not high in power, your floor was made of dirt. However, by the time that the colonies began to form in North America, there was an abundance of timber. Hardwood flooring became popular for creating homes with more warmth and resistance that earlier designs.

Though the floors were made of wood then, there were not sanded or finished. It wasn’t until the 1850s that the hardwood flooring would actually start to be mass produced. It was a very popular choice, and continued to thrive until the era of linoleum flooring, which brought heavy competition. Linoleum was easier to install, and was a lot less maintenance than hardwood flooring.

But that doesn’t affect our opinions on it!

Hardwood flooring is a gorgeous addition to any home. As you can see in our featured image above, hardwood floors bring comfort and beauty into any room. Not only are they beautiful, but they are easy to clean and take care of, and are the most environmentally friendly option for flooring. Any and every space can be spruced up with hardwood flooring, as it comes in many different shades and styles.

Our gallery features many beautiful homes who have chosen light colored hardwood flooring for their living rooms. Each room has its own personality that is aided by the charm of the hardwood flooring that lines it.

We hope you love this elegant gallery as much as we did!
