Popular Hardwood Flooring Solutions to Consider

Popular Hardwood Flooring Solutions 

Hardwood flooring has become extremely popular, offering homeowners many advantages. This flooring solution is durable, easy to maintain, restorable, and refinishable. It also adds character and warmth, and enhances the appearance of the room in which it is installed. Learn about the most sought-after types of hardwood flooring with the experts at DUNCAN Flooring Specialist. 


Not only is oak a durable type of lumber, but it is also moisture-resistant and offers beautiful aesthetics. It comes in a variety of colors as well as textures. Many choose to have oak hardwood flooring installed due to its cost-effectiveness and availability. With its ability to withstand foot traffic compared to other types of hardwood, living room spaces and dining areas are ideal places for installation. 


Another popular type of lumber is maple. Maple is known for its versatility and is considered a harder wood. It comes in lighter, neutral colors and looks great in homes that display a contemporary design. Maple hardwood flooring is affordable and it offers a great range of wood grain. 

Engineered Wood 

Engineered wood resembles traditionally manufactured hardwood, however, homeowners can purchase it at a lower, more affordable price. What exactly is engineered wood? Engineered wood is made out of several plywood or softwood layers. It helps enhance the appearance, style, and versatility of a home’s interior and adds warmth. 


While bamboo isn’t technically hardwood (it is a grass), it mimics the look and feel of hardwood flooring. Bamboo is available in its natural color, a baked, caramelized color or in numerous stained colors too. Some benefits of bamboo flooring are it is sustainable and environmentally friendly, stain resistant (if pre-finished) and a good choice for those who suffer from allergies. It does need to be harvested at the proper time, however, and it is sensitive to humidity and temperature levels. Ask questions during your purchase process to make sure you are getting a quality bamboo.
