Types of Hardwood Flooring

This type of hardwood flooring comes in either pre-finished or unfinished. Pre-finished only needs installation making it a quicker, easier option. Unfinished wood floors need to be sanded and finished on-site, allowing you the option to choose between stains and sealants.

Strip solid hardwood flooring ranges in thickness and is defined by its width. You can choose one of three width options, but you cannot choose its thickness, as it varies depending on each plank. This gives the floor a unique sense of depth and natural feel, making it perfect for homes seeking a rustic feel or for those seeking more interest in their flooring. The thickness varies, but once it’s sealed, you won’t have to worry about tripping over any of the strips.

Plank flooring is the opposite of strip in that it ranges in width and is defined by its thickness. It comes in two thicknesses, but its widths vary between 3 and 8 inches. This gives your floor a natural feel without the depth, if you’re seeking a floor that is flat.

Parquet hardwood flooring gives your room a classic feel, with geometric patterns that direct the eye towards a specified direction. There are various patterns to choose from with a different look and feel depending on the type of wood you choose.

Acrylic hardwood flooring is impregnated with sealant and color throughout each piece of wood. If your floor gets worn down by heavy foot traffic, the color or seal won’t fade because it’s throughout the wood, not on the surface. Generally, this type is used commercially but there is a recent trend for commercial materials in residential homes.

This type of hardwood flooring involves adhering laminate veneer to real wood. In comparison, laminate flooring contains no actual wood. So, with engineered wood floors, you get a real wood floor with the resistance laminate provides on the surface. It’s a cheaper option than 100% real wood flooring without too many compromises.

Species of Hardwood Flooring


Oak is one of the most popular types of hardwood flooring. Oak trees are common and grow quickly, making it a more sustainable option when searching for real wood floors. Red oak and white oak are among the most popular.

Cherry wood, walnut, hickory, and maple are all durable options with distinct grain patterns. They differ from oak only with expense, as they can also be sustainably sourced depending on the area they’re imported from.
