I installed this floor in our living room and dining room recently. It is prefinished 3/4" x 3 1/4" maple, stained bronze. Wood comes from the province of Quebec in Canada, where they are noted for their quality maple trees. I had never done this before, but I think it came out ok for a newbie.
My wife loves it so much, that starting this morning, I will be installing the same hardwood in our 3 bedrooms and hallway....wish me luck. This is going to be a bit tougher, because of all the flowing transitions through doorways and cloths closets. I'll have to figure out how to make a spline to change direction into a bedroom on the opposite side of the hallway. Shouldn't be too hard (I hope). Anyway, here's what my living room and dining room look like.
