 Hardwood Flooring Options That Are Not Wood at All

Companies now make porcelain tile that has beautiful wood graphics that take a long stare by a trained eye to pick out the difference. They now even come in long rectangular planks that mimic actual wood in size. The other non-wood option is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring has it’s own issues but is extremely scratch resistant.

Hardwood Flooring That is Pet Friendly

Brazilian hardwood flooring is extremely dense. It’s hard to scratch with a razor blade and almost impossible to drive a nail into without it bending in 6 different places. It is a great choice for pet owners if you like the style as well. Bamboo is also a great choice. Bamboo is actually a grass but the resins that are used to bind the strands make it extremely hard and scratch resistant. Hard maple has been used for ages as basketball court flooring. It has a beautiful domestic wood character and is very accepting of stains.
