Is this really true about hardwood flooring? Sheen or no sheen?
We will be moving to our retirement home in a few months and want to install engineered hardwood flooring in our great room, foyer and dining room...all open to each other. We have had engineered flooring for 14 years and we love it. My question is one of the hardwood stores told us that a floor without a shine cleans a lot better than a hardwood floor with a sheen/glossy look? Is this true? Is the sheen only a matter of preference?
We have made a decision that we want a harder wood and 5" boards. Everything I see about Brazilian Cherry I just love, but I wonder if I would get tired of the "redness" that this wood seems to have. Any thoughts? Pictures?
