What is a solid hardwood floor?

Solid hardwood flooring is a type of flooring made entirely from real hardwood. It is known for its durability, timeless appeal, and its ability to be refinished multiple times.

Here are some key features and considerations regarding solid hardwood flooring:


Solid hardwood floors are made from a single piece of hardwood throughout the plank’s thickness. Common hardwood species used include oak, maple, cherry, walnut, and hickory. Each wood species has its own unique characteristics in terms of color, grain, pattern and hardness.


Solid hardwood flooring is highly durable and can last for decades with proper care. It can withstand heavy foot traffic and can be sanded and refinished multiple times to remove scratches, dents and other signs of wear.

Moisture Sensitivity

Solid hardwood is sensitive to moisture and is not recommended for areas prone to high humidity or moisture, such as basements and bathrooms. Changes in moisture levels can cause the wood to expand or contract, leading to gaps or warping. Proper acclimatization and moisture control measures are essential during installation.


Solid hardwood floors can be prefinished or finished on site. Prefinished flooring comes with a factory applied finish, offering convenience and quicker installation. On-site finishing involves applying stains and sealants after installation, allowing for customization and seamless repairs.


Solid hardwood floors require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition. Sweeping or vacuuming regularly to remove dirt and debris is important. Spills should be cleaned immediately to prevent staining or moisture damage. Periodic refinishing may be necessary to restore the floor’s appearance.

This classic flooring option has captivated homeowners and designers for centuries, offering a wide variety of wood species, colors, and finishes to suit any taste. Explore the latest trends, such as hand-scraped, distressed, and reclaimed wood, for added depth and character.
