The natural beauty of a real hardwood floor adds elegance to any room in your home. The personality of your home, color, and construction type are the important factors to consider when choosing hardwood.

Natural variations of hardwood grain determine the “character” of wood flooring. You can achieve a rustic look with installation of dramatic grain. Moderate grain variations suggests more traditional feeling. Contemporary style can be achieved by hardwood with very little graining.

The diversity of domestic and exotic hardwoods provide a wide range of colors. The color preference can also be achieved by a variety of stains and finishes. The color of hardwood ranges from very light to dark. The lighter the shades imply more contemporary feeling while traditional homes tend to have darker floors.

There are two basic choices of hardwood flooring - solid and engineered. The solid flooring are individual wood planks created from a single piece of wood that can lasts for years. Engineered floors are made from several layers of wood on plywood base. They and are designed to resist high humidity and can be installed in places where solid floors cannot.
