Learn About Hardwood Flooring
Steadfast and enduring, natural hardwood floors boast undeniable beauty and value. For centuries, homeowners have relished in having a little piece of the forest in their living areas: today, the continued appeal of hardwood is undeniable. Let’s take a closer look at this universal favorite.
Types of Hardwood
Today’s hardwood flooring is generally available in two different varieties: solid and engineered.
Solid hardwood, true to its name, is created using a single, solid piece of hardwood. These durable wooden planks are a terrific option for homeowners wishing for future flexibility, as they can readily be re-sanded and re-finished to reflect changing styles and tastes.
Engineered hardwood is also made entirely of natural wood, but it is built in multiple layers, allowing the grains to run at alternating angles. The end result is a floor that combines the beauty of solid hardwood, with added durability, making it structurally stable enough for even your most difficult spaces: like kitchens and bathrooms.
Endless Variety of Hardwood Options
Perhaps one of the reasons why natural hardwood is so appealing is the sheer volume of options now available. With a vast array of wood species on the market, there’s truly something for every budget, style, and taste.
Domestic woods like oak, pine, hickory, and walnut offer traditional beauty, with rustic finishes available to enhance your room’s down-home ambiance. For those with more global tastes, there are South American varieties like Brazilian cherry, maple, or mahogany: all offering rich, sumptuous color and texture. Another option, one that’s particularly appealing for the eco-minded, is natural bamboo. Naturally sustainable and renewable, bamboo floors add unique beauty.
