Hardwood flooring is an excellent way to add value, improve the look and feel as well as durability of your home. Not only does wood floors provide all that to your home, but engineered hardwood is also eco-friendly as well as all manufacturers have to follow the Lacey Act.

When looking at purchasing new hardwood floors, there are many things a person needs to consider. That is why it is best to go to your local wood floor store so the professionals can ask you the right questions to find the floors that are right for you and your home. Here are some things to consider:

Wood Species – different species have different hardness ratings. Depending on the traffic of your home should influence your purchasing decision. If you are a retired couple and have little traffic in your home, then a softer wood like a Birch would be fine. However if you have kids and pets and you do not want to install laminate, then a hard wood like a hickory might be the best option.

Size – size matters, there are different thickness of the wood and different widths of the planks. The 2 most common thicknesses of engineered hardwood is 3/8″ and 1/2″ wood. Most solid wood is 3/4″ thick. Most hardwoods today have moved away from the 3″ wide planks and most are 5″ wide, with some going up to 7 1/2″.

Color – to most homeowners, color is one of the most important aspects. They want a floor to make sure it compliments the rest of their home decor and paint. You will also want to take into consideration the availability of natural light and the size of the rooms the wood is to be installed. If there is not a lot of natural light, you might go with a lighter shade of wood since a darker wood might make the room feel smaller.

Cost – the ultimate factor for most homeowners and of course all of the previous items listed will factor into the cost of the product  Most hardwood products at wood floor store will range in price from $3.50 – $7.50 per square foot. Then you will also include the cost of installation.
