How To Select Flooring

Find the perfect hardwood flooring for your needs. Browse our visual samples below, or search by color, or type of construction.

Search by Color

Dark hardwood floors can be classic, elegant and cozy, while lighter or natural color species tend to give rooms an open and airy feeling. See examples of each below.

Search by Construction: Engineered, Solid or Laminate

The choice depends on where you want to install the floor. Both solid and engineered wood floors are made using real wood, so both are environmentally friendly.

Engineered Wood Floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using multiple layers of wood veneers. Engineered floors can be nailed or stapled to a wood subfloor, or glued down to a wood or concrete subfloor. This makes engineered wood floors ideal for slab and basement installations, but they can be used in any room either above or below grade. While this type of flooring can be sanded and refinished, it cannot be done as many times as solid wood flooring.

Solid Wood Flooring is a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid wood can be used in any room that is above ground. One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is that it can be sanded and refinished many times. Solid wood floors are ideal in family/living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and even kitchens and powder rooms. About the only place you can’t use solid wood flooring is in the basement.

Laminate Wood Flooring. If your budget doesn’t allow for solid or engineered floors, consider a wood look. With today’s technologies, Laminate wood floors are manufactured to look exactly like real wood. Laminate wood construction is made of four layers of materials, that when fused together, create durable, beautiful floors.
