There will come a time when you need to pick the flooring type in the design or renovation process of your home. But which flooring is right for you?
Picking it can be a seemingly difficult task mainly because there are so many materials to choose from and then each of them has a myriad of other options to go along with it. But wait, there’s more – there are a variety of things to consider depending on the room and the flow of traffic in that room.
Solid hardwood flooring is certainly one of the most desired type among new and old homeowners. The huge range of solid wood flooring is what makes this kind of flooring really unique. The beauty of the wood appeals to everyone who wants their home to look and feel as natural and fresh as possible. It is also one of the toughest and most durable types of flooring that you can choose for your home and if anything happens to it, it is very easy to renew it through a refinishing process.
When it comes to hardwood flooring, there are two popular choices:
1. Solid wood flooring or otherwise known as hardwood flooring where each plank is milled from a single piece of timber.
2. Engineered wood flooring where each piece is made out of two layers of wood.
In this article, we’ll be talking about the first type, the solid wood flooring. It is available in domestic types of wood most commonly – oak and maple but hickory and ash are also a popular choice. The domestic solid wood floors are one of the most popular hardwood floors used by existing, as well as new homeowners. But, lately, the teak and the Brazilian cherry wood are claiming more and more territory in newer homes. These aren’t the only newer and exotic woods that have become popular as of late. They are accompanied by the tropical kempas and the Japanese cherry, more commonly known as sakura, which are quite difficult types of wood to work with, but the results are well worth the effort. No matter what you choose, there are plenty of exciting options for hardwood flooring solutions.
