Solid wood floors are some of the best looking floors in the world and can create and tie in to any type of style and design. From contemporary modern design too rustic look, solid wood is the way to go. You can sand them, refinish them anytime and add a shine to the wood. Wood can be worked to give you a new impression over time.
Engineered wood is also a very good choice, in some cases the best choice. The grain of each layer in the engineered wood planks runs in a perpendicular direction, to make a strong plank that deals well with the changing temperatures of the bottom and upper surfaces.
One material we do try to stay away from is laminate wood floors. The panels have very little to no real wood and are mainly manufactured in china with no environmental restrictions will have high levels of formaldehyde that can create a health risk to you and your loved ones.
