Decorating Ideas

Wood floors with a medium-brown stain are a good neutral choice for most decorating styles.  In this room the floor color is integrated into the room's color scheme, repeated in the bamboo blinds at the window and accent pillows on the sofa.

Fix The Squeak

In most cases, your wood floor squeaking is not caused by a mouse.
Two pieces of wood rubbing together are the cause of most squeaks in wooden floors. There are two reason this happens. In one case the wood floor has pulled away from the sub floor that lies beneath it. Most hard wood floors are installed by nailing the wood floorboards to a plywood sub floor which rests on the support beams underneath. The sub floor can warp or the nails used to secure the floorboards in place come loose. The second reason for squeaks is a gap between the sub floor and the joists. The gaps most likely occur because the sub floor has warped.

Real Wood Floors recommends finding a quality wood floor contractor in your area to evaluate your floor to discover where and why the squeak is occuring. Most likely, it will be something they can fix quickly and easily. Their are several kits a wood floor owner can purchase online, however, most of these kits are not effective or only mask the real problem.
