Hardwood flooring may be the perfect choice for you

You'll never go wrong with hardwood flooring. Whether solid or engineered, these floors have a natural beauty, suitable for any decor from modern and traditional to rustic and California coastal. They also come with countless benefits, some of which you may not even know.

Wood floors: allure like no other

There are hundreds of hardwood flooring species from which to choose, categorized into domestics and exotics. Domestic species tend to be warmer and more traditional; some examples are oak, maple, hickory, walnut, etc.

Exotics are darker, more dramatic, and, some say, more contemporary. Brazilian cherry, with its fire-red surface, is an example.

Stains, sizes, and textures for the finishing touch

An extensive color palette makes it easy to customize wood floors to suit your style. Changing your style does not translate to replacing your floor; sand them and apply another color stain. Planks and strip sizes can also be arranged in unusual layouts, such as the trending chevron and herringbone patterns.

Textures, such as wire-brushed, hand-scraped, or distressed, are in vogue. They put the finishing touches on your design. Although these work in any decor, they're trendy for rustic designs. Finishes are available in various sheen levels, with satin being the most popular.

Hardwood flooring: real estate value-adding and cost-effective

At least 70% to 80% of the cost will be seen as an increase in your property values. For example, a home valued at $400K will become worth $415K or more once hardwood flooring is installed, not to mention they sell for more money. These floors can last for decades (sometimes up to 100 years), with only sanding and refinishing needed to bring them back to luster.

Hardwood for higher-than-normal moisture areas

Engineered wood flooring looks like solid hardwood floors, with beautiful oak, maple, and walnut. They have all the features, such as gorgeous undertones, knots, swirls, and growth rings, and the same benefits, such as value-adding, sanding, refinishing, etc. The difference is in the construction, which gives it more stability and a better ability to handle water.
