Hardwood and Cork
Wood flooring has definitely become one of the most popular flooring options available for homes. Unlike other options, wood flooring is natural, so it truly offers unique textures and appearances. In fact, given wood’s unique patterns and grains, each wood floor is one-of-a-kind. Visit Walla Walla Carpet One and take advantage of our selection of wood floors. We offer hardwood and cork flooring, each of which has its own advantages.
Hardwood is considered the traditional wood flooring. It possesses warmth, character, and natural beauty that other flooring options simply cannot replicate. Plus, hardwood is available in many styles, colors, and edge choices, and it can be installed with strips, planks, or parquet. As a result, there are a variety of design options available.
The two main types of hardwood are solid and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is made from a genuine strip of wood. Engineered hardwood, however, is made from three to seven layers of wood that are pressed together. It is therefore more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. Both solid and engineered hardwood can be refinished over time for added shine and smoothness, but solid hardwood can be refinished more times.
Cork flooring is an appealing option because of its unique appearance and surface designs. Compared to hardwood, cork is soft and warm. More importantly, cork has elastic properties that make it extra durable. The surface resists wear, and most indents will fully or partially recover. Cork’s durability, especially when combined with its softness and ability to dampen sound, makes it a great option for areas with high foot traffic.
