Hardwood is an excellent choice for a “one and done” sort of flooring. In other words, the lifespan of solid wood is so great, that you may not need to consider another flooring option as long as you own your home!
Choosing Hardwood Floors
The biggest thing you’ll need to consider in purchasing hardwood is the wood species you want to go with. These range a great deal, as you have the option to go with domestic or exotic species.
Domestic species, such as oak, hickory and pine are all very popular Bradenton hardwood flooring options. Cherry is another popular species that usually has a pink or reddish hue, and is often stained only with a clear finish, to allow the natural color to show through.
Brazilian Cherry, also known as Jatoba, is a very popular species of exotic wood flooring. It’s known best for its amazing hardness and dense, rich coloring. Other exotic species worth looking at are Santos Mahogany as well as Tigerwood.
There are many species to choose from, many more than we’re listing here today. Flooring Depot is your go-to destination for hardwood flooring in Bradenton. We can guide you through the entire list, if you’d like. Just stop by our showroom in Bradenton, FL.
What You can't Do with Hardwood

Well, there is one tiny detail we want to make sure to mention: You cannot place solid hardwood flooring in basements. To do so is simply asking for flooring trouble due to moisture. However, you can substitute engineered hardwood flooring instead. Just ask us about it!
