Cleaning your hardwood floors regularly may seem like a chore but will keep them looking newer for longer. Hardwood floors are also an allergy friendly option when properly maintained.

Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Hardwood Styles

Just like with all flooring, hardwood is available in different styles to suit the needs of different home décor. There is modern and traditional hardwood flooring, as well as rustic hardwood flooring options that emphasize wood's natural character. Harwood styles can differ from plank width, wood grains, color, shine, and even texture.

Our flooring experts and designers will help you choose the hardwood style that best fits into your overall home décor and style of your home.

Types of Wood

Although for the most part hardwood flooring is made of wood, those types of wood can be different. The different hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance.

There are also more unique options of wood that are not made from lumber. Types of wood floors like bamboo and cork are exotic options we have.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood

Two main types of hardwood to choose from include solid and engineered options. Solid hardwood is the traditional option. Its simple construction allows for you to refinish the planks to ensure your floors look good for years to come. Engineered hardwood floors are constructed of multiple layers. This construction makes the planks stable, and you can install them on every level of your home.

Both engineered and solid hardwood is made from real wood. Each type features its own benefits for your home. Regardless of the type of hardwood you choose, we can promise that we have what you are looking for. We have options that reflect traditional styles as well as options that reflect current trends.

Where can Hardwood be Installed?

Hardwood is recommended for home settings where there isn't significant foot traffic and moisture. Popular spots for hardwood are bedrooms and living rooms. Solid hardwood is limited to being installed in on or above level rooms of your home. Engineered hardwood, however, can be installed on all levels of your home including in a finished basement. It can also stand up to a moderate amount of foot traffic and can be installed in hallways and entryways.
