Endless Hardwood Options For Any Style
Wood floors with engineered hardwood have become popular in homes because of the durability they offer and the aesthetic value they bring. These floors make great surfaces to install in high-moisture areas, such as the kitchen, basement, and bathroom. They’re usually made up of three or more thin sheets of wood that are fused together to make a single plank. The planks are typically positioned in opposite directions during the installment process. This keeps the plank from expanding and shrinking.
Solid hardwood offers the opportunity for reinvention without having to make drastic changes. Over the course of its lifespan, this flooring can be refinished and recoated multiple times. As long as you take proper care of your floors, they can last for decades. This means if your sense of style ever changes, your floors can change with it.
Think carefully of where you want to install solid hardwood floors before you have them put in. Unlike engineered floors, they may be affected by seasonal changes in moisture. This means they contract when it’s cold outside and the heat is inside. Conversely, they expand when during the summer months due to the increase in humidity.

Designing a space that’s unique is possible when you install handscraped hardwood floors. These types of floors have a distressed look that makes them appear worn, but they are very durable. They make any space in a home a visually pleasing due to their uneven finish, which also changes with the light. As the day passes and the light level changes throughout the room, so do the floors. The morning sun creates hues that mellow out as day turns to night.
If you need floors that are able to withstand heavy foot traffic then these are the perfect floors. Any small, marks, or scratches that are made blend in well with the manufactured scrapes. This helps ease your worries about refurbishing your floors due to any scrapes or accidents that might occur. Additionally, they’re very easy to keep clean. Minimal effort is required to remove dust and spills can be wiped up quickly.
