Hardwood Flooring Guide

If you are looking for a floor that is both naturally beautiful and durable, then consider hardwood flooring for your next project. Hardwood floors not only add sophistication to your home, but they also add value over time.  

Hardwood comes in an array of styles, colors, patterns, and types to choose from. Not all hardwood is made the same, so are harder than others and can handle foot traffic better, while other wood is “soft” and needs to be regularly taken care of. Hardwood also follows design trends, right now rustic weather worn looks are popular, and no longer do you have to repurpose old barn wood when you can get the same look in a brand new plank. You also have the option of choosing between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Both offer special benefits to your home.

Is Solid or Engineered Hardwood Better?

There are several differences between solid and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is typically a 3/4” solid plank, whereas engineered hardwood is made up of multiple layers of real wood veneers. You can install solid hardwood in rooms that have low foot traffic such as bedrooms and dining rooms.

Engineered hardwood can be installed throughout your home, including in hallways, living rooms, and finished basements. Whereas solid hardwood has a uniform construction, engineered hardwood is made from different wood layers. As a result of this layered construction, engineered hardwood is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood.
