The type you choose will depend on personal preference and where you plan to install. These floors are valued for their long-lasting beauty and durability. While they can be sanded and refinished several times if desired, you can also enjoy a look for life. Solid hardwood is installed over wood subfloors and is perfect for rooms on first and second floors—living areas, bedrooms and even kitchens.
Specialist retailers who only operate online also offer a large range of products and, as they have much lower overheads, great discounts as well. Certain smaller niche manufacturers also sell direct and finally, for the largest choice of wood flooring, you can browse major manufacturers online and then find a local small flooring retailer to order from. Prices might be slightly higher but you often get better, more personalized service from a small family run local retailer. Wayfair is a very interesting online retailer that you should take a look at, they sell over 7 million products for the home from over suppliers, including of course hardwood flooring. A great place to start your research if nothing else!
