Hardwood is a great addition to any Magnolia home because it is incredibly durable, adds value, and provides an elegant look that works great with any type of home décor.

Installing blonde hardwood is a great way to make a small room feel bigger or to lighten up a space. This works especially well in rooms with lots of natural light. Blonde hardwood has a classic, subtle look that doesn’t overpower a room. This means that it will work well with all types of home décor, whether you choose to go modern or traditional. Another benefit of light wood is that it hides dust accumulation really well.
Hand-scraped hardwoods have become very popular over the recent years. This technique can be done on any wood species and creates planks with a subtle texture. Hand-scraped flooring is a unique look that adds character to a home. Today, hand-scraped hardwoods are typically done with a machine. They are great for hiding dents, scratches, and dirt due to the varying texture. Hand-scraped hardwoods do tend to cost a bit more, so keep that in mind when planning your new hardwood project.
Cherry hardwood has a rich, beautiful red tint that provides a very classic and elegant look. It has a fine, straight grain with coloring that ranges from reddish brown to reddish blonde. Cherry is one of the more pricey hardwood species, so it might not be ideal for every room of the house. The coloring, however, can be replicated on other hardwood species with the correct staining.
