Dark brown hardwood floors add value and beauty to a home. Homeowners often choose dark brown hardwood to add richness and depth to the interior design. An inviting contrast is created with metallic or light wood furnishings and crisp white walls.
Natural colored hardwood such as white or red oak ranges from nearly white sapwood,
to brown or tan heartwood. Creamy, soft colors make a room feel airy and light. It can be interpreted as refined elegance, or casual, unfussy modern. The legendary durability and beauty of oak are both endearing and enduring.

Engineered wood is real wood cut from the log in layers and then put in plys by gluing. It has 8- 10 coats of urethane which makes it very durable. It allows it also to be installed below grade and over concrete which you cannot do with 3/4" solid. It can be sanded 1 or 2 times. Most are nailed tongue and groove but in some circumstances it can be floated or glued. At times the general public confuses engineered wood with laminates. Laminates are made with wood dust/particles under very high psi and then coated with melamine (a type of plastic) which makes it scratch resistant. But laminates cannot be sanded nor would you need to.
