A Guide To Many Different Types Of Wood Flooring

Wood looks incredible, indeed when it is used as a floor material, and it also feels great to walk on. It has been known to come in so many different styles, types and budgets as well. If you are thinking that you are putting in wood floors and that you cannot go wrong at all, you may be right. The key is to just choose the right quality wood for the floor. All the types of hardwood floors have unmatched natural beauty, and they have also been known to go with absolutely any décor as well. They go with modern, country, traditional, Italian and more. They also go in any room because they are beautiful indeed.

You may be thinking if you want to go for finished or unfinished hardwood flooring. Well, unfinished hardwood flooring is certainly a great option if you want a good and custom stain applied before the overall final finish. Or even if you want to match the colors of the existing floors, it would be a great option indeed. If you are thinking of adding a hardwood floor in the kitchen, the unfinished floor is a great choice because the finish will penetrate and also seal all of the seams between the boards and this will help prevent water from going in between the boards.

 

The prefinished hardwood flooring actually comes from the factory, and it would be sanded and sealed as well. This would mean that the installation job would be done really quickly as well. There will also be no odors when you are finishing it on-site, and the floors will be ready to walk on as soon as they are installed.

Solid hardwood flooring is actually all wood, and it comes with a thickness of a few inches or even 1 inch. Since it is solid wood, it can easily be sanded and also refinished many times. It is actually vulnerable to humidity, and it should never be installed in bathrooms, kitchens and basements as well. The engineered hardwood option is actually real wood which is glued to several layers of wood under all of it. In this scenario, you can think of plywood. This wood is engineered, and it is excellent. It would be one of the best options for long time use, and that would completely depend on the thickness.

The best ones would be oak flooring, maple flooring and even cherry flooring as well. Finally, wood flooring is indeed a great option, and it will give your house a great vibe. If and when you plan on taking it out, make sure that it is taken out safely and donated so that someone else could use it.
