Oak, bamboo and cherry offer the most durable flooring options. Their extreme hardness allows the wood to maintain a consistent shape over time with more resistance to scratches compared to softer wood options.

Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
Many homeowners renovate or upgrade from carpet to hardwood flooring for these advantages:
Types of Hardwood Flooring
Understanding the different types of hardwood available is the first step in choosing the perfect flooring for your home. The two hardwood options we offer at 50Floor to meet your needs include:
- Engineered hardwood: Engineered hardwood flooring consists of a thin strip of natural wood species and a section of premium-grade plywood compressed into a criss-cross design. This option resists moisture and works well in kitchens and bathrooms. Because of its durability and cost-effectiveness, engineered hardwood is an excellent choice for high-traffic areas.
- Solid hardwood: Solid hardwood flooring consists of natural wood planks — typically 3/4 of an inch thick — connected by tongue-and-groove joints. With its natural colors and grains, solid hardwood stands out for its beauty and elegance. This flooring is a popular choice for its durability, long life and superior acoustic properties.
Different hardwood stains often dictate a room’s unique feel or mood. Brown colors typically reflect an earthy or natural tone, while darker shades often create a contemporary or dramatic theme. Lighter colors help produce a brighter, more cheerful space.
Some hardwood stain examples include:
- True black
- Golden oak
Like color, the wood species you choose significantly affects your floor’s appearance, particularly the patterns and shapes of the grains. Some examples of the various species we offer at 50Floor for solid hardwood and engineered hardwood floors include:
- White oak
- Red oak
- Brazilian Cherry

Laminate doesn’t last as long, but it’s cheaper. It also works better in high-moisture spaces like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
