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
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.
