Hardwood Flooring Guide
A luxurious flooring offering many advantages, hardwood flooring is perhaps most prized for its unique character and style. When it comes to adding market value, there’s truly nothing like hardwood flooring. Outliving many fleeting trends, hardwood flooring means endless style and distinction. At Carpet One Floor & Home in Fort Wayne, we carry a vast selection of quality hardwood, both engineered and solid.
It’s always important to remember that a decision to purchase hardwood flooring can represent a significant investment, so choosing new flooring should always be done carefully. While an informed decision is strongly recommended, hardwood flooring has come a long way over the years and newer innovations in engineered hardwood have made this fine flooring a lot more accessible.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood Flooring
There are thousands of types of hardwood flooring for you to choose from, but all of them fall into two major families: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. The differences aren’t apparent upon glance, but there are some major distinctions below the surface,
Sold hardwood is the most traditional type of flooring, and its solid wood planks are of uniform construction. Since these planks are thick and solid, they can be refinished over and over again. Engineered hardwood, a newer alternative to solid, is crafted in wooden layers, offering added stability. It can go below grade, and can handle some moisture.
Where to Install Hardwood Flooring
A favorite flooring for living rooms and bedrooms, hardwood flooring works best in areas that get less foot traffic, making it popular for living rooms and bedrooms. Different finishes and colors allow you to create the looks you love: glossy, chic, rustic, vintage, or modern. Our team of professional hardwood flooring experts, of course, are always here to help you find the perfect hardwood product to suite your space and functional needs.
