Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?

Even though hardwood features natural durability, it does have its limitations. For example, solid hardwood is suitable for on- and above-ground areas such as 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.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood

Hardwood is a unique flooring option, and comes in a variety of styles, species, finished, constructions and more. When it comes to wood species they all range in durability, style, and even color. Hardwood like oak and maple are great for homes with a lot of activity. The biggest decision you have to make when choosing hardwood is choosing engineered vs. solid hardwood. Both types of hardwood have great features and benefits, just one may be better suited for your home than the other.

Solid hardwood features a uniform construction, and has a classic look that adds 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.
