I plan on using a walnut mid-tone handscrapped engineered hardwood flooring throughout the house. We needed a durable flooring that could be floated on the slab. Mid-tones tend to show less dirt and are more easy to decorate around.
Tip Tuesday: Silence a squeaky floor or that one creaky step by sprinkling baby powder onto the noisy areas and brushing it into the cracks. Even after sweeping, the baby power will settle in between the boards, acting as a natural lubricant and stopping the squeaks.
