Hardwood Styles

When choosing a hardwood floor, we offer a variety of styles that can match or complement your current décor. We carry classic, modern and traditional hardwoods as well as rustic hardwood flooring options that emphasize wood's natural character. The different styles of hardwood are categorized by features including plank length and width, wood grains, color, shine, and even texture.

Types of Wood

Hardwood flooring is available in many different species. The different popular hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance.

What is The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

Solid hardwood is one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The simple construction allows the natural character of the wood to stand out. It is considered the original hardwood option, and can be refinished in order to extend its life time in your home. The durability of solid hardwood can vary depending on your type of lifestyle. Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple real wood veneers whose grains run in different directions in order to increase stability. This makes the planks more stable and durable. They can also be refinished, and are a great option for those who have an active household.

Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?

Popular spots for hardwood are bedrooms and living rooms. Solid hardwood should be installed in cool, dry places around your home. Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including your basement. Other places hardwood can be install includes hallways and staircases. We recommend avoiding installing hardwood in places with a lot of foot traffic and moisture, this can cause damage to the planks.
