Hardwood floors are available in assorted styles. Choose from varied species, finishes, and trends that best resemble your style and lifestyle. When it comes to hardwood floors, there's no such thing as one size fits all. Hardwood floors can be contemporary or classical. There are thousands of species, plank sizes, finishes, and textures to choose from.
Oak, maple, and hickory are among the most popular species in hardwood floors for their durability and beautiful coloring. You can choose from finished and unfinished hardwood floors, which means you can either have the installer apply a finish in your home or purchase the floor pre-finished. Another important choice is if you want solid or engineered hardwood floors.
Solid hardwood flooring is your traditional wood flooring choice. Solid hardwood is made from single pieces of natural wood from a variety of species. Solid hardwood flooring can be refinished multiple times, making it incredibly long-lasting when properly cared for. Because of this, solid hardwood can be pricey, but one benefit of this investment is that increases the value of your property. Solid hardwood flooring is finicky when it comes to moisture, so it’s best to avoid moisture-prone rooms.
Engineered hardwood floors are a modern take on a timeless classic. Formed from up to seven layers of compressed hardwood veneers that are set in a cross-grain fashion, engineered hardwood is denser than solid hardwood. It’s overall a better fit for seasonal climatic shifts, as it’s less likely to shrink or expand when exposed to moisture. Engineered hardwood floors can go below grade and resist everyday denting and scratching.
Although there are beautiful imposters, they can never capture an actual hardwood floor's authentic look and feel. An engineered hardwood floor comprises multiple layers that give it more stability than a solid hardwood floor. They are also more tolerant to moisture and won’t warp or crack. The significant difference between solid and engineered hardwood is that you can refinish a solid floor many times.
Moisture can play a pivotal role in how hardwood flooring performs and its longevity. Fluctuating levels of moisture can cause the hardwood to expand and contract – potentially causing permanent damage to the planks. This is why it is best to avoid solid hardwood in moisture-prone rooms and choose engineered or waterproof hardwood when you can’t.
