Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for flooring in every room, with beauty, performance, and an extensive lifespan. The more you know about your options, the better your results will be when you choose to shop.

Some facts are common knowledge, and others are lesser known. Here are some of the little-known hardwood facts that could alter the outcome of your experience.

1. The unique nature of hardwood flooring


Because every piece of wood is different, every hardwood floor covering is unique. So, even if you choose the same species, stain color, texture, and style as someone else, no two wood floors will ever look the same.

2. Wood flooring and better air quality


Solid wood is a natural material and doesn't off-gas harmful products into your breathable air. They're also free from pesticides and microorganisms and offer a carbon-neutral profile for long-term air quality in every home.

3. Hardwood changes over time


Over the years, you'll see subtle changes in your floor's color, thanks to oxygen and UV ray exposure. For example, light-colored woods grow richer and darker, while dark woods lighten over time.
