Are you looking to install hardwood flooring in your house? It is important that you understand what types of hardwood flooring to use in specific rooms. Certain brands and types of hardwood flooring perform better than others depending on the type of room that they are installed in. Invision Hardwood & Décor understands the ins-and-outs of hardwood flooring.

The first choice any homeowner must make when considering hardwood flooring is whether they want to use solid hardwood flooring or engineered hardwood flooring. Solid hardwood is classic, durable, and beautiful, but not always practical. Engineered hardwood is much more versatile and capable of fitting into almost any room in your house.

For bedrooms, you can often choose a softer version of hardwood flooring. Most bedrooms are considered light traffic areas and this will ensure that your flooring holds up and stands the test of time. In contrast, for the kitchen, you would use a much harder hardwood floor with an acrylic finish that is capable of withstanding heavy traffic, spillage, and other forms of damage. When choosing hardwood flooring for a dining room or living room, most homeowners will value style. This room receives medium traffic, but style is important as it is one of the rooms that a family will use the most.

One final factor that you should consider is whether or not you will own a pet. If you do own a cat or a dog, trim their nails in order to prevent them from scratching your beautiful floor. It’s a simple fix that can save you a major headache in the long run.
