Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?

Where you want to install hardwood plays a role in the type of hardwood you should buy. Solid hardwood should be installed in cool, dry places around your home such as bedroom, living rooms, and formal dining rooms. Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including your basement. You can even install engineered planks on stairs and in hallways. Hardwood, however, is not a suitable floor for kitchens or bathrooms because of the humidity and moisture.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood

Solid hardwood flooring features a simple construction and is made of a single piece of wood. This allows the natural character of the wood to stand out. It not only adds style to your home but also value. A bonus feature is that solid hardwood can be refinished to extend its lifetime in your home. Engineered hardwood is made of 3 to 7 layers of real wood veneers that are pressed together cross-grain. This makes the planks more stable and durable. They can also be refinished, and are a great option for those who have an active household.

Hardwood Styles

We offer a variety of hardwood styles for our customers to look through. From classic to modern and traditional hardwoods, to rustic hardwood flooring options that allow the natural character of the wood to stand out, we have what you want. The different styles of hardwood are categorized by features including plank length and width, wood grains, color, shine, and even texture.

Types of Wood

Hardwood is harvested from several different species of trees. The different popular hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance.
