Solid hardwood has a “wow” factor that cannot be denied. It can instantly transform the ambiance of your home and enhance the decor of any room.

At Dragon Scale Flooring, Laurel, MD, our knowledgeable staff will answer your questions about hardwood floor coverings and suggest options that can transform even the humblest of rooms.
Naturally beautiful
Oiled hardwood results in a more natural finish, different from the shiny look of traditionally varnished wood. Since oil penetrates deep into the pores of the wood, it enhances the natural grain while providing long-lasting protection. Whether you opt for a light or dark-colored floor, you’ll be giving your home the benefit of a modern and overall beautiful look.
Environmentally responsible
If sustainability is near and dear to you, then choosing sustainably harvested hardwood is a great choice. The oils used to treat the hardwood can be plant-derived and therefore enviro-friendly compared to varnishes. We also have other eco-friendly alternatives if you’re considering other options. Our showroom pros will be pleased to discuss all our sustainable products with you.
