Hardwood Styles

One of our favorite aspects of hardwood flooring is its sheer variety. Hardwood is made in hundreds and hundreds of options. Whether you prefer a trendy style or something more traditional, there are many fantastic hardwood selections. Choose your favorite species, finish, size, and stain for a customized look.

Types of Wood

Hardwood flooring is made using wood from a wide range of tree species. Domestic hardwood favorites include pine, maple, or oak.  Some of the more exotic options include mahogany, cork, and bamboo. Remember, each hardwood species boasts unique traits and varying hardness levels. Choose carefully. Our experts can make recommendations based on your style, space, and budget.

Solid vs. Engineered Hardwoods

It's difficult, if not impossible, to tell hardwood and engineered hardwood apart. Don't be fooled: they're built quite differently. Solid hardwood is made from solid wood planks. It's a traditional favorite for many and considered a worthy investment. Solid hardwood can be refinished repeatedly as the years march on.

Engineered hardwood, a more recent innovation, is manufactured flooring made from many layers of wood and resin. These planks are made to perform: they're denser, more forgiving, and can be used in areas off-limits to solid hardwood.

Where to Install Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood should be avoided in the bathroom or a kitchen. Careful climate control should be your goal if you long for solid hardwood flooring. If you have pets or small children, our experts recommend using engineered hardwood.
