Hardwood Floors to Upgrade Your Dining Room

by Rachel Lyon, Editorial Director for The House Designers

In many ways, your dining room floor is like your kitchen floor. It will need to stand up to spills and heavy traffic, so moisture resistance and hardiness are very important. On top of this, the dining room floor has an extra concern: as a major design element in an area likely to welcome many guests, it should perfectly match the rest of your design scheme. There are plenty of suitable options to work with every style, so set out and explore the possibilities!

Lumber Liquidators Bellawood Natural Maple

Bellawood Natural Maple flooring from Lumber Liquidators is the perfect choice for a dining room because it is hardy, scuff resistant, and features beautiful color variations that complement décor.

The Versatility of Maple

Good for more than syrup and beautiful foliage, maple trees also produce a beautiful hardwood that is popular for use in dining rooms. This lighter-colored wood combines durability with classic beauty, and it pairs well with lighter décor, for a bright and casual effect, as well as with darker furnishings, which will produce a look of fine contrast. Since maple is often the choice selected for use in sports flooring, like basketball courts, bowling alleys, and dance studios, you can be sure it will hold up well in your dining room.

If you think you’re in the market for a maple floor, there are multiple types available. For an extremely hardy floor with a 100-year transferable warranty, the Bellawood Select Maple from Lumber Liquidators is a sound investment. For a more rustic appearance that you can stain and finish to your liking, the R.L. Colston Maple is a great choice.

Lumber Liquidators Morning Star Antique Hazel Click Strand Bamboo

This Morning Star Antique Hazel Click Strand Bamboo flooring from Lumber Liquidators is exceptionally hard due to being produced from mature bamboo shoots that have been compressed under extreme heat and pressure.

The Limitless Variety of Bamboo

With the demand for eco-friendly products constantly on the rise, it should come as no surprise that bamboo floors are coming out in every conceivable color and style. No matter your style, there is a bamboo floor out there that will complement your dining room. And while the renewable nature of the material is its major selling point, you can be sure you’re getting a quality floor at the same time. Look for “strand” in the name, because this means the flooring has undergone an intense manufacturing process that makes it very hardy against wear and tear—it's twice as hard as Red Oak!

It’s worth your time to check out the wide variety of bamboo flooring available to you. Whether you prefer the lighter look of Morning Star Natural Strand Bamboo or you want to go bold with Supreme Bamboo Ruo Horizontal Distressed, there is a bamboo solution to your dining room flooring needs.

Lumber Liquidators Bellawood Brazilian Cherry

If you want a floor that will age beautifully with your home, Bellawood Brazilian Cherry delivers. Its rich color and unsurpassed durability will enhance the finest of homes, generation after generation.

Branching Out

Despite the massive selection of flooring available, sometimes people get stuck on the usual options. While these are tried-and-true and sure to provide the look and resilience you expect of them, there are other suitable floors that you might love even more. Why not shop around and see if you can find something different that’ll stand up to your dining room requirements?

With a wide grain pattern, light range of colors, and the proven strength to make it the natural choice for baseball bats, ash is great hardwood option to consider. Bellawood Natural Ash flooring is elegant and sturdy, and it offers a very unique pattern. If you want an even more varied floor with cream, brown, and red hues, Bellawood Natural Hickory could be just what you’re looking for. There are plenty of darker hardwoods, too, like R.L. Colston Brazilian Cherry and Bellawood Select Patagonian Rosewood, so don’t worry about struggling to find the exact look you want.
