Hardwood options and benefits

You might think choosing hardwood is just as simple as that. However, there are a few other things you’ll have to decide upon before installation can begin. For instance, you have the option of choosing either solid or engineered wood. As you might expect from the name, solid wood is just that, one solid piece of wood from top to bottom.

Engineered wood, on the other hand, has a veneer of hardwood on top, protected by a special wear layer and attached to a composite backing.Engineered wood is often the choice for homeowners looking to floor a below ground room, such as a basement. It is unaffected by humidity, moisture or temperature changes, so it’s a perfect wood floor product for areas such as this.

If you decide to go with the solid option, you’ll need to first decide which species of wood you’d like. This will depend upon certain factors, such as how much traffic your home normally sees, and what kind of everyday wear and tear it will be going through. For high level areas of traffic, the harder the wood species, the better. In these cases, a domestic species such as cherry or oak works wonderfully, with exotic hardwoods being even harder still. For lower traffic areas, bedrooms and closets, softer woods will work if you choose.

After deciding upon the species, you’ll get to choose a finish of your choice. Most homeowners choose the classic, sleek and polished look that most people think about when considering hardwood. However, you can choose distressed, vintage and hand scraped finishes as well, especially if you’re having your floors finished on site.
