Best Hardwood Flooring Styles


If variety is what you’re seeking, hardwood floors don’t disappoint. Made to integrate into a wide range of décor schemes, hardwood floors can be contemporary or classic. There are rustic, weathered planks for vintage-inspired installations and sleek and decadent planks for a more modern design.


Types of Hardwood Floors


Hardwood floors come from a wide range of tree species. Domestic hardwood options include pine, maple, and oak. Among our favorite exotic choices are teak and mahogany. One thing to bear in mind: each hardwood species offers up respective benefits and distinct hardness levels. Our flooring specialists can help you determine which options are right for your upcoming project.


What is Engineered Hardwood? 


Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood are impossible to distinguish upon a glance. Looks can be deceiving. Solid hardwood floors are just what they sound like- sturdy planks carved from single slabs of natural woods. A solid hardwood floor is always a luxurious addition. It can also be pricey but worthwhile, since it represents infinite refinishing potential.

Engineered hardwood floors are a modern take on a beloved classic. These manufactured planks are comprised of up to seven layers of tightly pressed woods and resins. A denser, forgiving floor, engineered hardwood can go below grade.


Hardwood Installation


Hardwood floors aren’t a common choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Solid hardwood floors are best reserved for quiet, dry spaces and have a consistent relative humidity level. If you seek something with more flexibility, you’d be wise to consider engineered hardwood flooring, or a waterproof hardwood floor.
