Engineered Wood's Variety in Colors and Textures


Engineered wood flooring is becoming a more popular choice in home décor, with many homeowners choosing it over regular hardwood. There are many reasons it is becoming a preferred option including the fact that it tends to be easier to install and has a higher moisture resistance than hardwood. It can also work in a variety of locations within the home. Another reason engineered flooring is becoming so popular is because it is being offered in a greater variety of finishes, giving homeowners more choices when it comes to the look they want to create for their homes. If you are thinking of installing engineered flooring in your home, here are just some of the options we recommend that you can choose from:

Traditional Oak

This type of engineered flooring can give homes a warm, traditional look.  White or red oak are your two basic choices and while most homeowners find this option unaffordable in hardwood, engineered flooring makes traditional oak a more economic choice. 

Wide Plank

Flooring with planks that are wider than 3 inches are considered wide plank. They are great for giving homes a historic look and many have intricate grain patterns and dark knots that can enhance the style even more.
