Replacing the hardwood floors in your home can be an exciting project. This is especially true if they are worn out and refinishing or resurfacing won’t make much of an aesthetic difference.
Solid Hardwood Floors
One of your options is to choose a solid hardwood floor. These panels are made from boards of lumber. Ash, maple, and oak are three of the most popular types of solid hardwood floors. But you can also choose from cherry, lapacho, and tigerwood, all of which come from South America. Sanding and refinishing will restore how beautiful it looks, year after year. However, despite how gorgeous and durable these floors are, they are not the best choices for areas with levels of moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements.
Engineered Hardwood Floors
An alternative choice is to install engineered hardwood floors. If your old hardwood floor was also engineered, then it could be time to replace it. Multiple layers of hardwood are glued together into what are called “plies.” Engineered hardwood is more stable, and more resistant to water damage. That’s why you can place these floors in rooms with higher levels of moisture and not have to worry about what will happen to them.
How It Looks
The difference maker might come down to how much you like the look of one over the other. Distressed hardwood flooring could be a great fit, but so could traditional hardwood floors. It all depends on the type of aesthetic you want your home to achieve.
