When shopping around for your beach house, it is important to consider the style
and colors that are already there. You want to choose something that will blend
with your décor, and still look good if you choose to redecorate. You also want it to
be durable and age gracefully. Hardwood floors are perfect for your beach house,
but with so many options to choose from, how do you pick the one that’s right for
you? Here are a few tips that might help you out with that.
Tropical Beach Flooring
Bamboo is one of the most popular and eco-friendly flooring options available. Due
to its extremely fast growth rate, it is highly sustainable and it grows easily in a
variety of environments. Believe it or not, bamboo isn’t even technically a hardwood
but it does come in third on the Janka hardness scale. That means it’s harder and
more durable than hickory, oak, or maple. It also comes in a wide variety of colors to
complement your beach house: from dark coffee to red-orange to beach-weathered
A Warm, Beach-y Look
If it’s the warmer tones that appeal to you, like the lighter red-browns and umber
tones found in rattan, bamboo and reed patio furnishings, you may want to go for a
solid oak hardwood floor. You can have it whitewashed to age it and really give it
that beach look. Be sure to treat it with a finish that will protect it from sun-
bleaching and harmful UV rays.
If you’re really going for that authentic beach flooring, choose bamboo or hardwood
planks with a weathered, gray look. All major flooring manufacturers have options
for this. A weathered gray hardwood floor isn’t going to look uniform. There will be
variations in the colors of the planks and degree of weathering to make your beach
house’s hardwood flooring as authentic as possible.
