Although hardwood flooring may require an initial investment up front, the payoff comes sooner than you think. You’ll have durable and beautiful floors in your home that add both style and value. Hardwood floors are easy to clean, but do require regular maintenance. You should consider installing hardwood floors in rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, even hallways.

What makes hardwood flooring unique is the wide variety of styles it comes in. You can choose from dark or light colors, or even unfinished planks that you can make look however you want them to. Continue reading below to learn more about our hardwood flooring selection.

Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood

When choosing a new hardwood floor, you have two options: solid or engineered. Solid hardwood is considered the traditional hardwood option. It is a simple construction made from a single plank of wood with a finished, or unfinished, surface. Solid hardwood is a long-lasting option because you have the ability to refinish it a few times. Engineered hardwood is a modern option, and is made up of multiple real wood veneers pressed together and the grains are cross-directional to give the plank more stability. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered planks can only be refinished a handful of times depending on how thick the top layer is. The benefit of engineered hardwood is it resists changes in humidity and will not expand and contract as easily as solid hardwood.
