Hardwood floors are widely known for their ability to bring charm and sophistication to any room. With such a natural material, it’s no surprise that hardwood floors are considered one of the most loved options on the market today.
Our collection of hardwood flooring ranges in style to fit many specific design schemes or even a combination of design types. From rustic, full of character floors to contemporary, elegant hardwood planks, our selection has what you’re looking for. Features of hardwood vary based on plank width, hardwood species, finish, and texture.
There is not just one difference between solid and engineered hardwood, but instead, several differences that can determine whether you should invest in solid or engineered. Solid hardwood flooring is one single piece of wood, with the true character of the wood standing out in each plank. Solid hardwood is the species of the tree it comes from all the way through, which determines its hardness and strength. Engineered hardwood is different because it is three to seven layers of wood veneers, laid in a cross-grain pattern with a wear layer on top. While both solid and engineered hardwoods are durable options, solid hardwood generally requires more attention and maintenance than engineered.
Solid hardwood can be installed in any room that has little moisture. Ideal areas include living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and offices. Engineered hardwood can be installed in similar places, but also on any level. For example, attics, basements, and stairs and hallways are perfect rooms for engineered hardwood. Neither solid nor engineered floors should be installed in kitchens or bathrooms because of the high moisture levels.
