Real Wood Floors: Going Green Can Be a Work of Art


<p><span class="xn-location">ST. LOUIS</span>, Mo., <span class="xn-chron">Aug. 16</span> /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- There is no doubt that solid strip oak floors are still the overwhelming preference for most homeowners in the <span class="xn-location">United States</span>, and the reason is clear.  Wood floors offer the most environmentally friendly flooring option available on the market.  But wood floors are much more than just another green product; they also can be beautiful works of art.</p>
<p>With real wood floors, customization possibilities abound.  Exotic wood species offer more color options than ever before, making flooring an open canvas.  Customization trends go beyond species and color as well.  Hand-scraping, borders, medallions, inlays, and mixed media, including materials like stone, granite, aluminum, brass, and even leather, provide unlimited potential for artistic expression.</p>
<p>Each year, the National Wood Flooring Association holds a contest to recognize innovation and craftsmanship in wood flooring installation and design.  To see winning entries, and hundreds of other design options as well, visit the NWFA's web site at <a href=""></a>, and select the "Floor of the Year" menu option.</p>
