Solid hardwood is just that: made of solid wood through and through. Compare this with engineered hardwood, which is a layered product made up of a thin slice of hardwood on top of a base of high-quality plywood. If you are thinking of adding solid wood to your home, come to us, where we have been building on a proven reputation in the local industry for outstanding quality work.

Benefits of solid hardwood

Why do home and business owners continue to choose solid hardwood floors? Advantages of this timeless material include:

  • Improve the look of your home: Solid wood floors add a touch of elegance to your home, as well as class and warmth. You may even say that hardwood floors make any space look bigger.
  • Low maintenance and easy to clean: Hardwood can be swept, steam-cleaned, or vacuumed to remove dirt or debris. Plus, they’re much more stain-resistant than carpets and other flooring materials.
  • Strong and durable: While hardwood floors could be dented or scratched with the right amount of force, truth is, this material is one of the most durable out there. In fact, these hard surfaces can last for decades if cared for well.
  • Add value to your home: If and when you decide to sell your home, keep in mind that buyers will pay more for a house with hardwood than any other material.
  • Better air quality: Unlike carpet and even tile, hardwood floors do not trap dander, pollen, dust, and other common allergens, which means it’s easier to improve your indoor air quality. Wood floors are perfect for those who suffer from allergies.
  • Matches all decors: Solid hardwood has the versatility to adapt to any interior design theme in your home. Plus, there is a wide range of colors, shades, and species to choose from, with natural beauty available with a variety of swirls, shades and grains that enhance character.
  • Long-lasting and cost-effective: Solid hardwood floors are more expensive that engineered hardwood floors initially, but when you consider the long-term value and the fact that they can last for generations, solid hardwood is a no-brainer.
  • Color won’t fade: The steady appearance of hardwood, and the fact that each board is solid all the way through, means this type of flooring will retain its coloring for many years to come.

Which Solid Hardwood Floor Species, Color and Board Size is Right For Me?

When considering the right style and kind of hardwood flooring you want, you’ll have to consider your home’s overall look, feel, function and style.

  • Are your tastes more contemporary in nature? Use a narrow 2 ¼” or 3 ¼”  wide board in a lighter, natural color.
  • If you lean more traditional, you will want to use a 4” or narrower board in a medium to light color. 
  • If you like a country style, go with a 5” wide board in a darker to light color with more character, such as knots and pin holes.
  • If your floor will experience heavy traffic, use a wood species such as natural oak with graining and character to mask any scratches that may occur to the floor.

There are so many wood species, colors and grain patterns to think about when considering which solid wood floor to get. Your floor area is no doubt the largest expanse of color or pattern in any given room in the house. Your solid hardwood floors should complement the fabrics, cabinets and furnishings that are already present in the space, while enhancing your personality in the process.

The most popular wood species for solid hardwood flooring right now is Red Oak Natural or White Oak Natural in either 3-1/4″ or 2-1/4″ wide boards. But more and more homeowners are opting for more exotic wood species such as Santos Mahogany or Brazilian Cherry featuring  dark, reddish, rich colors. Cork and bamboo flooring are also becoming more popular, in darker colors for formal or traditional interiors, and in lighter colors for country, contemporary and casual settings.

Consider all this and more when choosing the type of solid hardwood flooring you want.
