Wood flooring is available in several styles:

Strip Flooring
The flooring comes in strips with widths that range from 1 1/2" through 2 1/2" and thicknesses of 5/16" through 3/4". Strip flooring creates a traditional look, and can produce an illusion that a room is larger than it is.

Plank Flooring
Plank flooring also comes in strips, but they are wider, usually from 3" through 7. Plank flooring can be used to create a more rustic or earthy look as well as a historical appearance with antique applications.

Parquet Flooring
Parquet flooring is a series of wood pieces that create a geometric design. Parquet offers a variety of design options. It can create an elegant look for formal settings or a more contemporary spin for casual spaces.

Select Hardwood for Any Room

New advances in technology afford engineered hardwood floors the flexibility for installation above, at, or even below grade. Several layers of construction are bonded together to prevent bowing/shrinking in cool, moisture prone areas.

All our hardwood floor selections are clearly labeled for performance in a variety of conditions and applications. Our Quick-Pick icons indicate where they are best used - Below Level (below grade and at ground level, grade) or Above Level. You'll also see icons indicating a style's suitability for residential or commercial settings.

Explore a Wide Array of Looks with Hardwood

You'll probably want to decide on the species of wood you prefer early on in your home design process. Our Quick-Pick icons immediately identify the species that interests you: beech, cherry, hickory, maple, oak, pecan, walnut or exotic imports.

Understand Product Variations

Many factors determine how your floor will look. Consider how much natural variation there is in the grain and coloring of a wood, a range that contributes to wood's endless appeal. How shiny the wood appears varies according to a gloss level rated as matte (low), satin (medium) or gloss (high). A matte finish helps to maintain your floor’s appearance in high traffic areas, while high gloss finishes will add elegance and grandeur to a formal space.

Choose Your Ending

Even the configuration of the strip's edge contributes to the look of the installed hardwood floor. Many strips (or planks - the wider version) offer you the choice of square edge (smooth and flat surface), micro bevel (mild bevel that can be felt with the fingertips), or full bevel (forming a strong groove to visually separate the strips and focus your eye on grain line).
