Expert Advice - Hardwood Styles

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on all the different looks and style available in hardwood floors.

Durability of Hardwood

Hardwood is known as a durable surface. Made from real wood, hardwood floors are also naturally beautiful. Hardwood floors are best used for rooms like bedrooms and living rooms. An added benefit of installing hardwood floors in your home is that they can be allergy friendly. When properly cleaned and maintained, dust and dirt have nowhere to hide and grow, meaning harmful allergens have nowhere to thrive. 

Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood

Solid hardwood is the original hardwood format, with each plank comprised of a single piece of wood. Solid hardwood is exceptionally durable, and is a great option for those who like to redecorate, as it can be sanded and refinished over and over again. However, there are some limitations. Solid hardwood cannot go below grade, and it doesn’t tolerate moisture well.

Engineered hardwood is a newer contender to the flooring industry. Combining the beauty of natural wood with modern ingenuity, engineered hardwood is made using multiple wooden layers. It has an absorbent center and a durable top coat. Engineered hardwood is more affordable, generally, than solid hardwood, and it can be installed below grade – and in other spaces inhospitable to solid wood.
