The Luxurious Comfort of Hardwood Flooring
If any floor evokes both luxury and comfort, it’s hardwood flooring. It’s versatile, serving as a beautiful backdrop for classic furniture, while also adding richness and warmth to modern decor.
It’s also a popular choice for Austin homeowners who love the look and feel of hardwood for their family homes.
Hardwood is a great choice if you’re looking for:
• Flooring that adds to the value of your home
• The beauty of authentic hardwood
• A timeless look that can last a lifetime
If you love hardwood, you have many options to choose from in wood species, colors, finishes, textures, and price. The choices may even seem overwhelming, but our professionals can help. One of the most important first decisions is choosing a wood flooring type.
Hardwood Flooring or Engineered Hardwood Flooring?
It might sound like engineered hardwood is “fake” wood, but this is not true. It’s 100% real wood with no two planks looking exactly alike, unlike laminate flooring, which mimics the look of wood.
Where hardwood is solid wood, engineered wood is a composite. It has a layer of natural wood over a few layers of premium plywood. Each layer is set with the grain at a cross angle to help reduce expansion or contraction and for more stability overall.
Both of these wood flooring options would enhance any home, but each offers different strengths.
