Choosing Wood Flooring Grade
We have chosen a beautiful, warm, medium brown pre-finished maple for our kitchen (and whole main floor open concept). The flooring guy is encouraging us to get character grade with a low sheen because it's more natural and forgiving in a highly used family home (no pets, just lots of boys!).
I love the natural look, but am finally getting the beautiful kitchen of my dreams and I'm worried that it won't look as classy with a more rustic floor.
What are your thoughts on grade (character or select) and finish (high or low sheen)?
