Hardwood Flooring Guide

Robust, hard-wearing, and steadfast, natural hardwood flooring is considered by many to be the perfect flooring medium. Trends may come and go, but hardwood flooring will always be cherished for its lasting value and eternal endurance. At Emerson Carpet One Floor & Home, we love hardwood flooring as much as you do, and we can’t wait to show you some of the many varieties available in our Baton Rouge showroom.

Types of Hardwood Flooring

A favorite among traditionalists, solid hardwood planks are crafted using a single, solid piece of wood. Solid hardwood appeals to many homeowners because of its endless possibilities. As the years march forward and your tastes evolve, your solid hardwood can be refinished over and over again. Solid hardwood is also considered one of the most sustainable materials on today’s market, since it’s built to last for generations.

Do you love hardwood flooring, but have some concerns about humidity? Fear not: modern technology has, in more recent years, introduced us to engineered hardwood. Made entirely of hardwood, engineered flooring planks are crafted in multiple layers. The end result is a more stable floor that’s not as prone to shrinking or expanding in wet or humid settings.

With both solid and engineered wooden planks readily available in an entire forest of wood species, there are literally hundreds of options to ponder when selecting your hardwood floor. Whether your personal preference leans towards rustic oak or exotic tiger maple, your new hardwood flooring will dramatically improve your room’s appearance, while enhancing your property value.
