Color: The color of your flooring is usually the first thing that is noticed. With hardwood flooring you can have anywhere from very light colored to extremely dark. Usually, as a rule, people often choose lighter floors in contemporary settings and darker floors in more traditional rooms. However this is simply a matter of preference.
Character: Grain variations are naturally present in hardwood, which gives it its “personality”. Often, a dramatic grain can give a rustic feeling. Usually, moderate grain variations are associated with the traditional. Hardwood with very little grain texture is considered contemporary. Knowing this can help you match the décor, style, and feeling of your home.
Construction: There are two basic choices—solid or engineered. With solid hardwood, planks are created from one piece of wood, making a beautiful floor that lasts for years, often decades. Engineered hardwood is made from planks of several layers of wood (with a core of plywood or HDF) and have the ability to withstand humidity more than solid hardwood, allowing them to be places in areas of the home that solid hardwoods can’t.
There are many differences in the finishes—some are glossy others are more ‘dull’. Depending on where you are putting the floors, and the decorating in your home will help you determine the best hardwood flooring for you.
