We carry name brands as well as Carpet One exclusive brands, so you can shop confidently with us knowing you’ll get a high quality hardwood floor.

Benefits of Hardwood

Hardwood requires an initial investment that can sometimes deter homeowners. It is important to us to show you the value hardwood brings to your home. Like carpet, you can install it in bedrooms, living rooms, offices and more. Learn more about how hardwood compares to carpet.

Hardwood floors are relatively easy to clean but do require regular maintenance to keep their sheen. You can be assured that hardwood floors will last in your home for a long time.

Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?

Hardwood can be installed in several places in your home. It is important to remember to not install hardwood in places with a lot of moisture or where the humidity often changes. 

Solid and Engineered Hardwood

There are a variety of hardwood types and styles to choose. We most commonly educate customers about solid and engineered hardwood, which both feature specific benefits that are functional in your home. You can even choose between unfinished and finished hardwood for a customized look.

Both solid and engineered hardwood are perfect for bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms. Engineered hardwood is a little more versatile and can be installed in places like kitchens and hallways. Cleaning your hardwood floor is simple, but it does require regular maintenance. If you choose a solid hardwood option, you can refinish it to look new and last for years.
