Solid hardwood flooring is a popular choice among homeowners thanks to its durability and diversity of colors and styles. Wood varieties include oak, birch, beech, pine, cherry, fir, bamboo and many more.
Years ago, solid hardwood flooring was used for structural purposes. Today, it is a mainly aesthetic choice. Solid wood floors come in a variety of styles, widths, species, and colors as well as installation methods.
When choosing solid hardwood flooring, you’ll coordinate the color, style, species and widths with your décor. Additionally, the location in your home will impact whether solid or engineered hardwood should be selected.
Solid hardwood flooring is often stained and sealed in the manufacturing process; however, some customers are matching colors in their décor quite precisely. In this case, staining and sealing after installation would be called for. This is called site-finished hardwood flooring.
