Just deciding that you want hardwood floors, isn’t nearly the end of your options in this magnificent floor covering. For instance, there are two types of wood flooring, solid and engineered, and it’s likely that one will work better in your home than the other will. As the name implies, solid wood floors are made of one solid piece of wood all the way through. Engineered, on the other hand, has a veneer of real wood attached to a backing material.
Solid wood works great in any at or above ground level rooms. The fact that they expand and contract, makes them a bad choice for below level rooms such as basements. This can lead to cracking, warping and bending of the wood, which would cut the lifespan unnecessarily short.
You’ll have some other options as well when it comes to your wood floors:
Deciding upon species gives you the ability to choose hard or softwoods. Harder woods will stand up better in high traffic areas, while the softer woods are good for closets and rooms that are not used often.
Choosing a finish can help determine how much everyday wear and tear shows on your floors. A finish such as distressed or hand-scraped can often hide scratches and scuffs, giving you more time before refinishing is needed.
