Hardwood flooring is not cookie-cutter when it comes to style. There are modern and traditional hardwood styles as well as rustic hardwood flooring options that emphasize wood's natural character. The different styles of hardwood are characterized by features such as plank length and width, wood grains, color, shine, and even texture.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Often our flooring experts hear our customers asking about the difference between solid and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is just one piece of wood that has a finished surface, whereas engineered hardwood is multiple real-wood veneers cross-pressed together with a finished surface. Both feature special benefits that can improve the functionality of your home. Depending on the room you are installing your floors, speak with one of our professionals about which would be the best fit for your home.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Hardwood is a great option for moderately trafficked areas in your home like bedrooms and living rooms. If you choose engineered hardwood then it can be installed in places like hallways and even in finished basements. When regularly maintained, hardwood floors can last a long time and are very easy to clean. Remember, hardwood is not a waterproof option, so be sure to clean spills up right away to avoid water damage. Hardwood is also allergy friendly, because there is no place for dust or dirt to hide and harmful allergens to thrive.
