If you’re going with a classic look, we recommend a hickory or oak flooring. These types of woods are durable and can last for decades without needing any maintenance—and they’ll always look great!
But if you’re looking for something more modern, there are tons of options. You can go with bamboo or bamboo laminate floors that have all the benefits of natural wood but none of the hassle.
Or maybe you like the idea of engineered wood flooring: it’s made from wood scraps leftover from other projects, so it doesn’t use up any additional resources. It has the benefits of natural hardwood flooring but at a much lower cost. And if something happens to your engineered wood flooring one day—like when your kid spills juice on it—no problem: it’ll be easy to clean up and fix!
