Hardwood flooring is one of the few flooring options that will never go out of style. Its natural beauty and elegance has the ability to complement the décor in your home. Hardwood floors can be the focal point of a room, or just add to it. Regardless of where you choose to install your floors, hardwood will make all the difference in your home.
Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
The benefits to installing hardwood in your home include its added value. Hardwood flooring is looked at as an investment into your home, and the payoff is rewarding. You’ll have added noise reduction that some other flooring options do not provide, and there is the option of adding a heating system under your new hardwood floors. Hardwood comes in hundreds of styles and many different species, so there is definitely a hardwood floor for you.
What is the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?
Today’s consumers will be faced with two major hardwood flooring groups on their next shopping trip solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Both types of hardwood flooring families are beautiful and made to last, but there are also some significant differences. Which one will best suit your needs?
The most traditional option, solid hardwood is comprised of solid wood planks. They can be refinished as many times as needed, and if maintained, will last indefinitely. However, solid hardwood isn’t practical for every space: for example, finished basements aren’t conducive to hardwood flooring.
Expanding the world of hardwood flooring possibilities, engineered hardwood looks and feels exactly like its solid cousin, but is built in multiple layers and has a moisture-resistant core. This allows for the installation of engineered hardwood in areas where solid hardwood isn’t an option. This innovative, 100% wood floor can even be refinished a handful of times over its functional lifetime.
