Solid Hardwood Flooring

Solid hardwood flooring is arguably the most sought after amongst homeowners. The beauty of the wood appeals to those who want their home to look and feel as natural as possible. It remains one of the most durable types of flooring, and its beauty can be renewed through the refinishing process.

Domestic hardwoods such as oak, maple, hickory and ash are still favorites, but they are being challenged for supremacy by newer, more exotic woods like Brazilian cherrywood or koa, kempas, tigerwood, teak and sakura. Whether you choose pre-finished hardwood flooring or plan to finish it yourself, you’ve got many exciting options.

The current trend in solid hardwood flooring is for products that have an antique or old world charm. Wider planks, handscraped finishes and stressed wood designs are appearing with more regularity.
