Should I use unfinished or prefinished hardwood?

Unfinished hardwood is installed in your home before the finish is applied, which can be matched to existing / surrounding hardwood floors. Prefinished hardwood is stained and sealed by the manufacturer prior to installation. Under certain conditions home owners may choose to go with an unfinished hardwood floor particularly when they are opting to go with a custom colour stain that conforms to their unique décor. Unfinished hardwood is easier to customize with border inlays and complex layout patterns. However, prefinished floors come with the advantage of comprehensive warranties on their finishes which out-perform finishes applied on site to unfinished floors. Moreover, prefinished hardwood floors are more convenient to install for home owners and do-it-yourselfers, doing away with the messy staining and finishing process.
