How to Use Douglas Fir Flooring in the Kitchen

October 9, 2014 by | David | There have been 0 comments

At Altrufir, we understand the unique role a kitchen plays in a home. It’s the gathering spot where the family reconnects by sharing meals, stories, and homework tips. Kitchens are also where food spills on the floor, kids tromp in with muddy sneakers, and messes are an inevitable fact.

As the focal point of a house, a kitchen should be comfortable and inviting, but it should also be practical. Choosing the right kitchen flooring is an essential way to meet these two needs, adding extra appeal to any space while being easy to maintain.

Douglas Fir flooring is an ideal solution because it represents a marriage of these two values. Ourproducts are both beautiful and durable. As an added bonus, wood flooring increases the value of your home in the real estate market. Here are a few things to consider when selecting Douglas Fir flooring for your kitchen:

Selecting Your Flooring
Hardwood material stands out as the most resilient flooring thanks to its tight grain. CVG Douglas Fir flooring is another good option because its dense grain pattern makes it durable and long-lasting.

Installing Your Flooring
Before installing your Douglas Fir floors, do a quick check to make sure all of your pipes are in good condition. This precaution will prevent surprise leaks from tainting your flooring.

Also, make sure to install your hardwood flooring over a subfloor. Should a water leak sneak up on you, this method will make it easier to repair without impacting your entire kitchen’s flooring.

Maintaining Your Flooring
Keep that mop in the closet! Stick with frequent sweepings to keep your flooring in top condition. If a spill occurs, simply wipe it away with a damp cloth.
