How to Style Your Hardwood Flooring

The remarkable thing about hardwood floors is how versatile they are. Make it your own with distinctive features like:


Hardwood floor colors are naturally diverse, so choose from a rich oak color, or stay up to date on trends with a gray finish. Hardwood also comes in a range of exotic and domestic tree species like bamboo, cork, maple, oak, and birch. Each species performs differently in terms of hardness, so choose carefully Whatever your style, there is a hardwood floor that fits your needs.


What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring? 

Solid and engineered hardwood floors are unique in their own ways. Depending on your home and the space where you are planning to install hardwood floors, you can determine which one would be best for you.

Where Can I Install Hardwood Flooring?

Solid hardwood floors are best for rooms with low moisture like living rooms, bedrooms, and offices. They require nail-down installation, so they must be installed over plywood subfloors above-grade.


Engineered hardwood floors are best for living rooms, bedrooms, and playrooms, and because they’re glued down, they can also be installed below and above-grade in basements and finished attics.


Hardwood & Humidity

Choosing hardwood flooring that’s compatible with your home and lifestyle requires research and planning. As the season's change, with our hazy summers morphing into frigid winters, moisture is ever present, making it critical to choose carefully.


Your home’s relative humidity level – the level of water vapor in the air- will shift with the seasons. Relative humidity can cause your floor planks to shrink, in the case of too-low humidity, or swell, in the case of too-high humidity. Neither will bode well for your floor over time.


Experts advise to maintain a steady level of 43 percent relative humidity for the healthiest hardwoods. Using such tools as humidistats or hydrometers, along with insulated curtains and shades, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers are strongly recommended if you have hardwood floors at home.


How Does Hardwood Flooring Compare to Vinyl Flooring

One of the greatest benefits of hardwood floors is that they increase the value of your home. Though hardwood lookalikes like vinyl flooring cost less and look extremely similar, hardwood floors have the highest resale value. Thus, you can feel good about making a hardwood purchase. There is no buyer’s remorse with hardwood.


Planning A Hardwood Flooring Installation

Perfect installation can make all the difference in the sustainability of hardwood floor. Some hardwood floors are left with cracks in between the planks which cause water, dust, bacteria, and dander to slip through. Not only does this cause allergens and warping but leaves a black streak between the planks. Flawlessly cut planks and professional installers from Tile & Carpet Town guarantees a long-lasting floor.
