Know the facts about hardwood

You might think the idea to use hardwood as your floor covering of choice is a simple one, and for the most part,it is. However, you should be aware of all your options. Many homeowners feel that this floor is a burdensome one, but still want the luxurious look and feel of real wood. The good news is, this flooring isn’t nearly as problematic as some might have you believe.

In fact, there are enough options available in this niche that should allow you to pick the perfect floor, still having that look and feel you want, without all the worry and consideration. Of course, doing your homework and researching all your options, is still the best idea, but that’s what we’re here for!

You have added choices

Did you know that you actually have two materials to choose from, even if you’ve narrowed your options down to this flooring alone? Of course, you have the ever-popular solid hardwood, which is what most people think of when the topic comes up. However, you also have the option to choose engineered wood.

If you’re looking for the longest possible lifespan, and are willing to concede to the necessary maintenance and upkeep, solid wood is a wonderful choice. You can then choose from a wide variety of domestic and exotic wood species, your choice of stains, and so much more. With this flooring, you can even refinish it once wear and tear starts to show after a few decades. The only stipulation with this material, as far as placement, is that you cannot install it in basements.

Engineered flooring is still real wood, it just doesn’t react the same way to temperature changes and humidity. The top veneer is real, and you can still choose your favorite species and stains. You can even refinish it after awhile, at least once, depending upon the thickness of that veneer. Furthermore, engineered hardwood flooring can even be placed in the basement of your home.
