Hardwood Flooring Guide
One of the most traditional ways to floor, natural hardwood flooring is sturdy, enduring, and always elegant. Celebrated for its natural beauty, hardwood flooring is also renowned for its ability to transform. Organic and innovative, hardwood flooring has certainly evolved over the years and today’s technologies have presented us with hardwood flooring that can go where previously it could not.
With careful maintenance, your hardwood flooring will remain beautifully intact for future generations to admire. Adding value and texture, hardwood floors can also make your rooms appear larger than they really are. Hardwood grains also add significant depth to your floor. Still, hardwood flooring isn’t always the right choice for all situations.
Are you longing for hardwood flooring? Here are some facts to help you make some informed decisions regarding your next new floor.
Many different tree species are made to produce hardwood flooring. Each has its own respective attributes. For those who enjoy living “green,” sustainable species such as cork and bamboo are great choices. On the other hand, those who are attracted to traditional décor might prefer more popular woods like oak, pine, or maple. We carry many popular wood variations, but you can expect to discover some new favorites on your next visit, as well!
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood flooring is the original hardwood flooring. It is built using a single piece of hardwood to comprise a single plank. Undoubtedly sturdy and visually stunning, solid hardwood is prized by historians and traditionalists. Since it has infinite refinishing capabilities, solid hardwood is also a smart decision for those who plan to redecorate frequently.
Engineered hardwood flooring is the answer to challenging situations where hardwood is desired, but is ill advised in its original form. Since engineered hardwood is crafted in many layers and has water-resisting abilities, this type of hardwood is a good candidate for spaces below grade. It can handle humidity and is less susceptible to dents or scratches.
