6 Species of Hardwood Flooring

6 Species of Hardwood Flooring

There are many different species of hardwood out there.

There are many different species of hardwood out there. This means that when you are choosing hardwood floors for your home, you have plenty of options to choose from! Your home’s interior design has never looked so good. Here are some species of wood for you to think about adding to your home.


Oak flooring is incredibly durable. This is part of why it is so popular all over North America. Because of its resilience, it won’t show scratches or dents, which should be a relief for you. These floors are also very smooth, which means you don’t have to think about using area rugs or throw rugs to smooth them out.


Mahogany is another solid choice. If you’re looking to keep costs down, then you might not automatically think of mahogany – it is, unfortunately, a bit pricey. But if you can swing some room in your budget, you’ll find that it is worth the investment. It’s elegant and timeless, and best of all, it’s water-resistant which makes it a great choice for kitchen flooring!


Ash is an extremely hard, light-colored species of wood. It owes its popularity to how dense and tough it is. It looks like hickory with one noticeable difference – there are more white spots.


Hickory is a fantastic choice for homes with a lot of foot traffic. It ranks high on the Janka hardness scale and it holds numerous designs in the wood, making a beautiful addition to any home.


Compared to the other species on this list, pine is relatively soft. This makes it easier to walk on since it is so soft. Plus, pine planks look interesting due to the character marks on them. In terms of cost, it is a middle of the pack choice – not too expensive, but not too inexpensive either.


Maple is a popular hardwood option for many homeowners because it is so versatile. When it is installed, it is relatively light in color. Maplewood has lots of beautiful character markings and its light coloring looks great with a variety of finishes.
