Hardwood flooring has become a popular flooring choice in Vancouver and adjoining regions in BC. It helps add value and elegance to the floors and inner décor of offices and homes with their wide range of color and shades available for various moods, styles and corporate statement.

Some of the popular types of hardwood flooring include Solid hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood flooring, floating floor systems, Laminate flooring and environment-friendly sustainable flooring.

For making a selection for the right hardwood flooring type for your home or office, one needs to keep a few important points in mind:



The overall appearance of the flooring with respect to the room is an important factor in selecting a hardwood flooring type. A particular type of flooring is chosen with respect to the ambience and the blend of wooden flooring with the furniture and other items in a room.  Engineered hardwood flooring is a favorite in this regard.

Durability & Wear-Tear

A flooring type is also selected depending on its durability. There are many wear-tear resistant flooring types which are installed mostly for their rough usage like Solid wooden flooring etc. Whereas, there are some hardwood floors like Engineered and Laminate hardwood floors which offer luster and charm to the living room with their attractive look.
