All About Natural Wood Floors
Adding enduring beauty and value to your home, natural wood flooring remains one of the most sought-after flooring mediums on today’s market. With organic options including hardwood, cork, and bamboo, natural wood is durable and timeless, as well as hypoallergenic.
Types of Wood Flooring
Hardwood is available in both solid and engineered varieties. Solid hardwoods, which consist of solid wooden strips, may be refinished as needed. Popular hardwoods include pine, oak, and maple, with more exotic options including mahogany and teak. Engineered hardwoods are manufactured to capture the looks of various hardwoods, but are crafted in layers for added stability and are less likely to expand or contract when exposed to moisture.
Bamboo is one of the hardest wood flooring options available, making it more resilient against constant foot traffic. Durable and dimensionally stable, bamboo is also pried for its unique patterns.
Cork is environmentally sustainable and, since it’s naturally resistant to moisture, is a great option for kitchens or finished basements. With its unique cell structure, cork is softer and warmer underfoot than traditional hardwoods.
