Hardwood has a naturally durable surface and because they are also made from wood they are naturally beautiful. Hardwood floors are best used for rooms like bedrooms and living rooms. You can even install hardwood in hallways and staircases. A benefit of installing hardwood floors in your home is that they can be allergy friendly. When properly cleaned and maintained, dust and dirt have nowhere to hide and grow, meaning harmful allergens have nowhere to thrive.
Whether your personal style leans towards traditional or something much more modern, there is many, many hardwood flooring options to consider. Classical, rustic, trendy, or contemporary, there’s a hardwood flooring fit for every type of space. The perfect combination of plank length, width, finish, texture, and gloss level can be achieved for a customized look.
Types of Wood
Hardwood flooring planks all come from the same origin: the world’s forests. Flooring is milled from many different tree species, both traditional and exotic. Some of the more popular hardwood species include pine, maple, birch, and oak. Different wood species will offer up different respective grains and features, as well as different wear levels and density.
Solid or Engineered Hardwood?
While solid hardwood flooring is comprised of single, solid pieces of hardwood, engineered hardwood is made from multiple wooden veneers, which are then cross-pressed together under a finished surface. Both offer their own respective benefits. Solid hardwood is the more traditional option, while engineered hardwood offers up additional stability and affordability. Both can be refinished: keep in mind, however, that engineered hardwood can only be refinished once or twice.
Where Can You Install Hardwood?
Inherently durable, hardwood flooring is a great addition to all types of homes. That being said, it should be installed with care. Hardwood flooring works best in spaces such as bedrooms and living rooms. It’s also a durable solution for areas such as hallways and on stairs. However, hardwood should be avoided in areas with excessive moisture, or spaces that fall below grade.
