The “Golden Rule” of professional installation is:
Before installing the floor, sort through and set aside several pieces of flooring that most accurately blend with the Artistic Finishes hardwood moldings, vents and stair treads.
This is called “blending your hardwoods.” During the installation, install the presorted flooring pieces directly adjacent to the moldings/vents/treads to ensure grain and color consistency. This simple, but often overlooked practice will provide a pleasing and trouble free finish every time.
