It’s a new year (thank goodness), and as many scrape snow off their vans, we asked wood floor pros to share their favorite projects completed this past fall. As usual, they didn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for hardwood floor inspiration to get you through the winter months ahead, look no further. (And a reminder: The deadline to enter the 2021 WFB Design Awards is Feb. 1. Find info about entering your project for free here.)
