Our knowledge of hardwood is solid

At JK Carpet Center, we know and appreciate hardwood and the many features, advantages, and benefits that make it a truly solid flooring choice.

Our hardwood specialists are here to help you learn about and understand this versatile and beautiful choice so that you can make an informed decision about whether it’s the right solution for you.

The color of hardwood floors ranges from very light to intensely dark—and everything in between. While, as a rule, lighter floors work well in contemporary settings, and darker floors are elegantly at home in more traditional rooms, choosing is essentially a matter of preference.

Naturally present in hardwood, grain variations help determine a wood’s personality. Dramatic grain suggests a rustic feeling. Historically, moderate grain variations are associated with the traditional. And hardwood with very little graining has a sleek, contemporary look.

Solid or engineered hardwood?

Beautiful and long-lasting, hardwood floors make an elegant choice for nearly any room in your home. When choosing hardwood, the color, character, and construction type are the important factors to consider.

Solid hardwood

Solid planks are created from a single piece of wood and make a handsome floor that lasts for years. It's highly sought after in homes, but it's also pricier. Solid hardwood is more sensitive to moisture, so it can't be installed in basements. Solid hardwood is built to last, and you can sand and refinish it multiple times whenever its surface looks worn or scratched.

Engineered hardwood

Engineered planks are made from several layers of wood (with a core of plywood or HDF) that are designed to withstand higher levels of humidity. This means they can go in basements and other rooms that solid hardwood floors can't. But one thing to be aware of is that you can only sand or refinish engineered hardwood once before you'll need to replace the entire floor.
