Different Types of Hardwood Floors
When having new wood floors installed in your home, you will have several different options to choose from. Sweet Hardwood Floors can help you understand your different options and what benefits each of them have. First you will choose the type of wood you want. The options are endless here. They include: Oak, Cherry, Walnut, Birch, Maple, Chestnut, Ebony, and Bamboo to name a few. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. It all depends on what you are looking for.
You can also choose whether you want solid or engineered wood floors. Solid wood floors are made out of solid wood pieces that go from top to bottom. This type of wood can be sanded and refinished many times, which makes it a great choice. The longer you can make your wood last, the better. Engineered wood, on the other hand, is made using multiple layers of wood veneers. The wood layers can be of the same species or different types. The layers of engineered wood go in different directions which is better suited for high humidity areas. The only real downfall is that it cannot be sanded and refinished multiple times, like solid wood floor pieces.
When choosing your wood flooring, you should consider what will look best in your home and with your décor. Your wood floors are a statement piece, so make sure it is making the statement you want it to. No matter what you choose, wood is a great option for floors.
