An important consideration in selecting the right hardwood for your space is its strength or hardness. When it comes to performance, you want a floor that can hold up to every day wear and tear and still look as good as it did day one.
With a little basic understanding about the different types of wood floors you can be better prepared and more confident in your selection. Wood floors are produced in both solid and engineered planks and strips and come in a wide variety of wood species. To help determine which type of floor will work best for your situation depends upon the location within your home and the type of subfloor.
