Hardwood flooring is a beautiful design choice that never goes out of style. If you’re considering adding wood floors to your home or office, it’s important to know about the different varieties, so you can make the best decision possible.
Solid wood and engineered wood floors are both great options, but they each have their own pros and cons. The same goes for finished versus unfinished hardwood floors. You may think that finished wood floors are the only way to go, but unfinished floors can be a better option for certain projects. In addition to those options, there are many types of wood species to choose from. Each species has its own unique features, such as different grain patterns, colors, and textures.
Here at Abatiello Design Center, we know all about different types of flooring, including hardwood floors. Let’s dive into the details and figure out which wood flooring best suits you!
This is a very important choice to consider since it affects many aspects of your floor.
Hardwood flooring should always be finished so that it lasts longer, but there are two options for this: having it finished at the factory or on-site. Prefinished wood flooring is convenient, quicker to install, and can be walked on right away. However, unfinished wood flooring is a good choice for certain projects. If you want to apply a custom stain to the wood flooring before finishing it, then purchasing unfinished wood flooring is the way to go. If you decide to do that, the stain and finish will need to dry before you can walk on your new wood floors, so make sure to plan accordingly, as this will add time to the installation process.
There is a wide range of wood species that can be made into hardwood flooring. They’re all beautiful in their own ways and lend themselves to different styles of décor. Here are our most popular types of hardwood flooring:
