If you're considering hardwoods for your next home improvement project, here are some helpful guidelines to get you started.


What Are the Different Species of Hardwood?


Just like any other flooring, hardwood comes in a variety of styles. Before deciding on a style, however, consider the area of installation and which species will work best in that area. Is it a busy hallway or a guest bedroom with low foot traffic? Each hardwood species offers varying durability and hardness levels, so be sure to ask your flooring expert which species works best for you.
Choose from different species to suit your needs:


What Are the Different Types of Hardwood?


There are multiple types of hardwoods, including engineered and solid hardwood. Today, we’ll take a closer look at the differences between solid and engineered. While they may look similar, each type has a few differences.
Solid Hardwood Flooring


As the name implies, solid hardwood is one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Each plank may vary in thickness, but on average, you can choose from ¾” or 5/16”.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring


Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple layers of composite wood, which are laminated together in cross-grain directions. Each engineered plank has a genuine hardwood veneer at the surface, so both types of wood appear identical from above.


Popular Hardwood Flooring Styles in Tampa


Consider the style of your hardwood floors, as well. Are you looking for a Scandinavian approach that is minimal and clean, or are you dreaming of a light and airy coastal approach for your Tampa home? Given the right style, your hardwood floors will elevate your interior to create a luxurious and beautiful space.
Some popular hardwood flooring styles in Tampa include:


Is There Waterproof Hardwood Flooring?


Although engineered hardwood can withstand some moisture and resist warping and cracking from splashes and humidity, it's not designed for prolonged exposure to water. Hardwood flooring, including engineered options, isn't typically advised for bathrooms or similarly high-moisture spaces. If you desire the aesthetic of wood but require waterproof capabilities, we provide alternatives like LVT, LVP, laminate, and our specialized waterproof hardwood brand, Hydrotek™.


The Many Advantages of Hardwood Floors


Natural hardwood has been used in architecture for centuries and is one of the longest-lasting flooring options available. Designed to suit every interior, hardwood floors are durable, hypoallergenic, and beautiful. With a simple care routine, your hardwood floors will serve your active household for many years. Best of all, hardwood floors instantly upgrade the resale value of your property, ensuring you receive maximum return on your investment. 

Where Can I Install Hardwood Floors?


There are several areas where you can install hardwood floors. However, since wood is naturally porous, it can swell and warp in our humid climate. For this reason, it is recommended to avoid installing solid hardwoods in areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms. Keep this in mind when choosing your specific flooring and the areas of installation.
