Nothing can beat the beauty of hardwood flooring.
The Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
When considering hardwood floors, there are many different factors that are important when trying to find the right product. Due to its exclusive nature, hardwood floor planks allow each piece to be completely unique.
The first thing you may want to consider is the type of wood you will be choosing. Each type of wood will provide a different color, pattern, and texture for your floor. Wood floor will also expand and retract differently depending on the temperature and moisture. After taking these details into consideration, you will also need to figure out how you want your wood floor to look visually. Do you want certain colors to pop?
One of the most unique features about wood floors is that you are able to choose the width of the individual planks. This allows you to choose the best style to fit your home. The individual planks can also have grooves along the edges to provide a more natural textured feel, or you can have the planks be smoothed out and touch along the edges to provide a smoother floor. Even if the edges do touch, you can still have a textured top that helps provide a feeling that is similar to the origin of the wood.
There are also two major types of hardwood to consider, solid or engineered. Solid hardwood is individual piece of wood that comes more directly from the source. Engineered hardwood is a layered product that cancels out some of the issues with solid hardwood. Engineered hardwood has better resistance to humidity and moisture; however, it cannot be refinished as many times as natural hardwood.
