Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood: Which Type Is Best For You?

Many are surprised at just how similar solid and engineered hardwood floors look. And while they are impossible to tell apart, there are a few distinctions. Solid hardwood planks are considered the original hardwood option. The simplistic construction allows the natural characteristics of the planks to stand out.




Solid hardwood flooring is beautiful and can help to add real estate value to your home, but it is limited in installing it. Solid hardwood should be kept in dry, cool spaces of your home that see little foot traffic, like a bedroom or home office.


Some benefits of solid hardwood include:


ROI: We all know that hardwood flooring is a large investment. However, this will add beauty and a great return on investment (ROI) in the long run.


Sanding & Refinishing: Solid hardwood flooring can also be more than once! This helps to extend its life and maintain its natural look.





Engineered hardwood flooring is a more modern type of hardwood construction. The planks are made up of three to seven layers of natural wood veneers. For this reason, engineered hardwood floors can be installed on all levels of your home, including in finished basements.




Some benefits of engineered hardwood include:



Where Can My Hardwood Flooring Be Installed?

In general, hardwood flooring works best in interior spaces. Most hardwood flooring options aren’t recommended for the kitchen or bathroom since frequent moisture and humidity can damage your floorboards over time.




Solid hardwood fares best in quiet, dry rooms.
