Urbanfloor Partners: “Why I Love My Hardwoods” with Megan Molten
We have something very special to share with you today. We teamed up with design powerhouse, Megan Molten, to bring you one of our favorite installations of the Villa Caprisi Romagna to date! Great things happen when you combine a stunning 9.5″ wide European oak floor with Megan’s fantastic eye for design. Continue reading below to hear Megan’s thoughts on her new floors!
One of my favorite new features of our home renovation is our beautiful hardwood floors by Urbanfloor . They make the biggest statement throughout our home and really captured the modern, fresh look we are going for. We decided to go with Romagna from the Villa Caprisi collection. I love the wider planks and how the European Oak brightens up our home. The floors are engineered hardwoods which we chose for a few reasons starting with the cost. Engineered hardwoods are a much better price point than regular hardwood flooring. I also loved that there is no waiting. We put our furniture in the day our floors were installed! You cannot do this with regular hardwood floors. With regular hardwood floors there is a sealing process and wait time before you can walk on them again. There is a lot of conveniences to not having to worry about that! We were on a tight timeline to get settled in and this was especially important to us.
We carried the hardwood floors through the open kitchen/ dining room, living room, mud room, entryway, hallways and bedrooms. The light floors and white walls give our home an airy feel. We chose to paint our entire home Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore from my go to ~ Spectrum Paint . The walls are a flat scrubbable finish while the trim and doors are satin. I love how the Charleston Peninsula Print by 42Pressed pops at the end of our hallway against the white walls and hardwood flooring.
My favorite feature of the hardwood floors is the idiosyncratic knots, mineral streaks and other elegant imperfections. I love seeing the original characteristics of the wood. The floors have a wirebrushed texture with a lacquered finish and are so soft to walk on! I love the matte finish of the floors.
The floors are so durable with a scratch-resistant surface great for high foot traffic areas of the home! We have pets and are always on the go so it was super important to us that the flooring would stay looking beautiful after lots of use. I wanted low maintenance and these floors are super easy to clean and do not show dirt easily! The floors contract and expand with the moisture levels which we needed given we have a crawl space home on the marsh ~ there is A LOT of moisture. They also do not have to acclimate to the climate of your home so you don’t have to put them in your house and wait a week until install!
If you are looking to update your flooring I highly recommend Urbanfloor. Their selection of luxury hardwood flooring is unparalleled. Their variety of unique flooring fits any style.
