I would like to put hardwood floors in my first floor this winter, the
kitchen, and the living room, and a hallway. Question is, using
prefinished hardwood, can I do a room at a time, or is color matching
a problem if I buy the wood at different times?
I'd like to do a room at a time for financial reasons.
Won't matter at all. The pre finished is still real wood and real wood
varies in tone from board to board anyway. If you are concerned, buy an
extra box to use as a mix with the first box of the new batch.
When doing this sort of thing, the manufacturers usually recommend that you
work from three or four boxes anyway to randomize the differences. Be sure
to keep the lengths random also for the best look. Just be sure to protect
the edges so you don't have a problem when continuing to the next room or
<< I agree with the above post.>>
Ditto! When you think you've finished (for the time being), put one more plank
on to protect the tongue of the plank that you will continue working from when
you're read to continue the project.
