When it comes to natural beauty and richness, it is hard to beat the look and warmth of real hardwood. Like most floor covering products, hardwood has changed dramatically over the last few years. Never out of fashion, hardwood floors can add real value to the home. With proper maintenance, these floors can last a lifetime! This can make the price over the life of the product very economical. Ja-San Flooring is proud to have partnered with several of the Industries BEST providers of quality hardwood. We have a wide selection of hardwoods in our showroom to choose from including 3/4″ solid oak, maple, cherry all the way to the exotic species including Tiger wood, bamboo, Brazilian cherry and many others. Our promise to you is that your wood will be installed properly by our certified installers, quickly and professionally on the day we promise.
Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Hardwood:
What level of the home will the wood be placed in? If you want to do the basement, or anything below ground level, you will need to go with an Engineered Wood. Engineered Wood is 100% natural wood that is sliced thinly into several cross sections. These thin pieces of natural wood are laid at a 90-degree angle from the previous piece. This assures the customer that once the wood is laid, it will not be able to expand and contract with the changes in moisture most commonly associated with basements and spaces below ground level.
Next, you need to take into consideration what type of wear do you want to see on your floor? Some Woods are very soft and will dent and scratch easily. If you are looking for a more durable wood that is more resistant to animal nails, stiletto heels, or general wear and tear you will want a harder wood.
Lastly, you will want to look for the type of wood construction that best suits your tastes. There are generally four types to choose from, and we have a large sampling of each one. They include: 3/4 Solid Hardwood Flooring (Unfinished or Pre-finished), Engineered Wood (Unfinished or Pre-finished), Long strip Wood Planks (Pre-finished) or Parquet Tiles.
Hardwood can be very confusing, so please stop in and let our expert staff guide you to the right wood floor for your home.

Through the flooring innovations of today, ceramic tile is not only more affordable, but is also easier to maintain. The options for color, patterns, sizes, shapes and design are infinite. At Ja-San Flooring we are sure that with the many different tiles we have available, you will be able to find just the right tile for your home and design needs.
Before looking at tile, there are a few things you should be educated on. The first thing is that there are differences between ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. Within the Ceramic selections, there is glazed tile and unglazed tile. Glazed is the most common and it has a special coating that is applied to the body of the tile and then fired at a very hot temperature to seal the tile. The glazing then creates a hard and non-porous result. Glazed tiles are stain resistant, scratch resistant, fire resistant, fade resistant, and the best feature, ease of cleaning!
Unglazed floor tile is free of the glazing process. However, while unglazed tile can be incredibly beautiful, it is porous and need to be maintained regularly. There is a special sealant that can be applied to prevent stains and the seepage of spills and general dirt into the pours of the stone.
Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic that is made of a very fine mixture of clays and minerals. The molecular makeup is similar to fine china or high-end dinnerware. These clays allow porcelain tile to be fired at even hotter temperatures than the ceramic tiles, typically near 2400 degrees (F). The higher the temperature, the denser the tile will become and the less moisture it will allow to penetrate. The benefits of Porcelain are similar to those of ceramic, they are denser and harder than most other tiles, they are highly stain and moisture resistant, they are naturally hygienic with an easy to clean surface. Lastly, porcelain is not only beautiful but equally durable and it can be used in both residential and commercial scenarios.
Marble, Slate, and Travertine are very popular stones today. These three stones are all naturally made and therefore individually unique. They are mined our of quarries and consequently, no two stones are ever the same. One important feature of these types of materials is that they need to be sealed. They can be extremely porous and therefore care needs to be taken with the maintenance. While they are porous, it is not hard to care for them, which makes them very popular in many homes today.

Mohawk Area Rugs
What is the Right sized rug?
WHAT’S THE RIGHT-SIZED RUG FOR MY ROOM?
Determining the proper size for a rug is just as important as finding the right color and pattern. The size and shape of your rug can help determine and define furniture groupings as well as areas of use, such as conversation areas. Multiple rugs can link one room to another. Furniture can be centered on the rugs or positioned off the rug depending on the size of the room and feeling you are after. Companion rugs can be of different patterns, but should share a similar color palette.
MEDIUM SIZED ROOMS
For medium sized rooms, area rugs are typically 5’ x 8’. This size is great for smaller bedrooms, home offices, and in living rooms under the coffee table, for example:
Under the Coffee Table
- Depending upon the size of your coffee table and accompanying furniture, choose a rug that accommodates all 4 legs of the table.
- Area rugs should approximate the same length and width of the furniture within the space. You can either leave some space between the furniture and area rug or place the front legs of the furniture on the rug with furniture coasters under the back legs adjusting for height
LARGE SIZED ROOMS
Large rooms typically require an 8’ x 10 or larger area rug. This size of rug is great for living rooms, great rooms, dining rooms, and master bedrooms. Instead of arranging the furniture and rug in a traditional alignment, a new twist might be to angle the rug underneath; or angle the bed/sofa/dining table and rug to match.
- An 8’ wide rug can accommodate most dining tables, but add at least 4’ to the length and width of your table measurements to be sure.
- Rugs should extend beyond the chairs in the pulled out position.
Living Rooms / Great Rooms
- Balance the area you are trying to define by leaving an equal amount of rug around the furniture grouping.
- An equal amount of exposed flooring around your rug can also give balance to your room
- In bedrooms, one large rug is luxurious, but the bed will cover most of it. Smaller equal-sized rugs used around the bed are another option. The soft comfort of a rug is most appreciated when stepping in and out of bed.
