Known for its natural elegance, hardwood is available in several varieties, finishes and prices. Hardwood can be engineered or massive. While massive hardwood is closer to the resource itself, engineered wood consists of a high-quality hardwood top layer supported by composite materials. Never going out of style, hardwood flooring offers many natural varieties for any decor: boards with “extreme” character, graining, infinite color choices, glossy or matte, etc.
Hardwood floors offer many benefits. In fact, wood products are a long-term option that adds value to your home. They offer a classic, warm look and come in a variety of colors. Easy to maintain, they can often be repaired and restored, even after years of wear. Wood is a renewable resource, and the most earth-conscious will be happy to learn that its growing and harvesting practices offer an environmentally friendly option for all homeowners with materials like cork and bamboo.
Here are some of the types of hardwood flooring available at VN Planchers Experts.
