Hardwood flooring in Bellingham, WA from The Curated Home Design

Can I get scratch resistance in hardwood flooring?

Solid hardwood flooring offers extensive benefits in visual appeal, durability, and lifespan, which can surpass 100 years with professional installation. But for busy homes, many homeowners wonder if scratch resistance is available in high-traffic areas.

The answer is yes, but it can mean different things for different homes. Here are some facts to help you protect your flooring best.

Species choice first

The species you choose will significantly impact the durability of your flooring, especially if you have pets or children. Some species are much harder than others, and it shows in your wood floors year after year.

Texture considerations

The surface texture can also play a significant role in the scratch resistance of your hardwood flooring. Options like hand-scraped, wire-brushed, or distressed surfaces will hide minor scuffs and scratches, so your floors will only have to be refinished less often.

Pick a great sealant

The sealant you choose is another way to guard against scratches, especially the ones that come from light wear. Our associates will give you a list of hardwood flooring options and explain how each would work for your needs.
