Many homeowners think that real hardwood flooring
is out of their reach as it is a little more expensive right from the start. But if you consider your options, you might just find that, over time, this material can actually save you money. Not only is it incredibly beneficial, but it offers a lifespan that means you may never have to shop for flooring again. At the same time, it adds great value to your home, which can be an asset whether you intend to keep or sell your home. In this case, then, it becomes a great option, especially for the long term.

You actually have two choices when it comes to hardwood flooring. The first and most well-known is the solid variety and the second is known as engineered flooring. It’s important to remember that solid varieties can never be installed in below-grade spaces such as basements, while engineered flooring, even though it has a veneer of real wood on top, can be installed there. For more information between the two, be sure to speak with your flooring specialist.
Once you decide on hardwood flooring for your home, you can go on to choose such traits as wood species, stain color, and finish type. This helps to create flooring that is as unique as you are and that best matches your decor and interior design. Some of these options are dependent upon certain aspects of your everyday life, such as species choice. Rated from soft to hard, the more active homes need to choose a harder species for best results.
Also, make sure you ask your flooring specialist about the necessity of professional flooring installation.
