Solid hardwood flooring can add beauty and value to any home. While hardwood flooring has been used for centuries, it has exploded in popularity over the past two decades. This rise in popularity can be attributed somewhat to the availability of a wide variety of species once considered too expensive for the average homeowner. Today’s homeowner can now choose from exotic species such as Brazilian cherry, teak, mahogany, and rosewood.
No matter what species you choose, you’ll find that solid hardwood flooring comes in three main categories: strip, plank and parquet. Strip flooring is the most common. Plank flooring is wider, and is popular in older homes because it was commonly used by early American settlers. Parquet flooring is made of geometrical patterns comprised of individual wood slats.
Each type of hardwood floor has different grain patterns and coloration. Once you choose a style and browse through species of solid hardwood flooring, you may decide to personalize the look of your new floor with a special stain or finish.
With so many options in solid hardwood flooring, it can be tough to choose the perfect one for your unique setting. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International in East Cincinnati help. Call or click to schedule a free in-home consultation today.
