Types of Hardwood
As traditional as hardwood is, it comes in a wide variety of style, sizes, species and more. Different wood species all range in durability, style, and even color. Oak and Maple are incredibly hard woods and are great for homes with a lot of activity. The biggest decision you have to make when choosing hardwood is choosing engineered or solid hardwood. One construction is not better than the other, there reason there are options is so you can choose the right hardwood for your home.
Solid hardwood is considered the original hardwood. The planks feature a simple construction and come in beautiful options that will add value to your home. Engineered hardwood features a modern, layered construction. This construction makes engineered hardwood more stable and resistant to the natural tendency of wood to react to changes in weather and humidity.
Where can you Install Hardwood?
Hardwood is known as a durable option, but because it is made of wood it does have its limitations when it comes to where you can install it. For example, solid hardwood should only be installed in rooms that are cool, dry and have low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood flooring has a little more wiggle room and can be installed in kitchens, hallways and even basements. So long as you care for your hardwood floors and do not continuously beat on them, they will last a long time in your home.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in places with a lot of heat and moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
