Hardwood flooring
is one of the most popular materials on the market. But species selection could be the most important choice you make.

In today’s post, we’re going to tell you about some of the most popular choices. Read along to find out more now.

Oak hardwood

Oak is well known as an all-around wood floor choice for most homes. This is because it's durable, holds a stain well, and has a long lifespan.

White oak is a little stronger than red oak, but both resist scratches well. It also offers an excellent grain for beautiful décor matching.

Maple hardwood

Maple is even harder than oak and makes a beautiful addition to your areas of highest travel. In addition, a smooth grain offers a beautiful décor match for minimal design schemes.

Maple hardwood flooring can become yellow over time. To avoid this, be sure to limit exposure to direct sunlight.

Hickory hardwood

Hickory has a combination of hardness, stiffness, and strength that results in excellent durability. In addition, the material is dense and shock-resistant, making it the second hardest hardwood species in North America.

Hickory darkens over time, with colors and patterns changing from plank to plank. Detail is striking for one of the most beautiful hardwood flooring choices.
