When it comes right down to it, it’s true that hardwood flooring is more expensive than many of the other alternative flooring materials. The major difference is perceived value vs. real value.For instance, those beautiful, elegant grains and stain colors can be authentic, or they can be replicated for show only.
Of course, when discussing wood floors, you actually have two alternatives: Solid wood, and engineered wood. Solid wood is, of course, one solid piece all the way through, while engineered wood is a hardwood veneer placed on top of a composite material.If you’re looking to save money, but still want to get what you pay for, you might consider the latter.
