What Types of Hardwood Flooring Are There?

When it comes to hardwood flooring at Flooring Canada Kelowna, there is something for everyone in our showroom. You’ll find industry-leading hardwood flooring brands, including Floorcraft, Downs Life, and Inhabit. We have two main styles of hardwood flooring—solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring—available in a wide array of styles, colours, widths, and lengths. Learn more about each type of hardwood floor:

Solid Hardwood Flooring

A solid cut of wood, these planks are the traditional hardwood flooring type. Your choice of wood species is available in different cuts, grain patterns, knotting and whirls, stains, and finishes. Because each wood plank is entirely unique, you’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind hardwood floor that stands out frm the rest. Additionally, solid wood can be sanded down and refinished over time to refresh the floor or switch up the look. These long-lasting floors can withstand heavy foot traffic for up to a century if properly cared for. However, solid hardwood is porous and not suitable for rooms with excess moisture—like kitchens and bathrooms. Ask our team about our solid wood floors to determine if it's a fit for your Kelowna home.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

If you desire authentic hardwood floors with improved performance in high-moisture environments, consider engineered wood floors. These are composed of layered plywood and topped with a thin veneer of solid wood to reduce the risk of cracking or warping due to moisture. This allows you peace of mind and flexibility to install hardwood floors in areas exposed to moisture. Our team will listen to your needs and assess your current space to determine if engineered hardwood floors are better suited to your project. After all—we are equally invested in the lasting success of your flooring remodel!


What Hardwood Styles and Species Are Best For My Home?

We strive to bring our customers a variety of hardwood styles that range from trendy to timeless. While we have the ability to order any hardwood species of flooring, some of our most popular hardwood flooring species are:

  • White Oak

What to Know About Hardwood Flooring and Humidity

At Flooring Canada Kelowna, we prioritize meticulous care in handling hardwood products to adapt to these climatic changes. Before installation, our team ensures that hardwood products are acclimated in customers' homes for an appropriate duration. Following the specific guidelines provided by the product manufacturer during installation is crucial, and our experienced professionals adhere to these specifications diligently for optimal results.

Given the climate in Kelowna, it's essential to recognize that ongoing maintenance plays a vital role in the performance of hardwood floors. Proper warmth and humidity levels are necessary for the products to meet expectations. We make it a point to educate our customers thoroughly, providing them with the necessary knowledge and tools to maintain the durability and beauty of their hardwood flooring well beyond the initial installation.
