Everyone makes choices about their home and interior. We see increase in tendencies of improving your home with hardwood. It’s a classic. The wooden floor in each room gives comfort, tranquillity and warmth.
If you’re thinking of putting in wood floors, you can’t go wrong. All types of hardwood floors have natural beauty and go with any decor — modern, traditional, country, you name it. Hardwood flooring goes in any room, although kitchens and basements require special considerations.
Hardwood gives those spaces an instant classic feel, traditional look and straddles the different styles and colors your kitchen may experience over the years.
Hardwood flooring doesn’t have to be a sea of brown. Universally available finish colors suggest wonderful array of whites, browns, blacks and reds.
Traditionally, hardwood flooring came in thick planks of solid timber. Today, solid hardwood is still widely available, but many companies may also offer engineered flooring—planks made with a thinner top layer of hardwood, bonded to other layers and designed to prevent the floor from shifting during expansion or contraction cycles.
For basements and flats with concrete subfloors, engineered flooring provides an installation advantage. Whereas solid wood is generally installed over one or two layers of plywood, which can raise the height of a floor and interfere with existing doors or marginally reduce ceiling height, acting as a disadvantage.
But choose carefully because some engineered floors have top layers so thin that they can’t be sanded and refinished in the future.
