Why not settle in the middle and get 3"?

2 1/4" is not that popular nowadays and most flooring manufactures produce 3 1/4". We went with Satin Finish and they do not manufacture 3 1/4, only 3". I had 3 1/4" in my last home and most people wouldn't see the difference walking into this home unless I told them.

As far as cleaning the floor, we went with a dark finish and my wife walks barefoot in the summer so there's always foot prints on the floor. Dust and hair is very noticeable on the darker finishes. Cleaning it is not too hard but you basically need to do it every 3-4 days. (vacuum then well wrung out micro fiber cloth and warm water). Once a month or so use hardwood floor cleaner.
