Choosing Your Hardwood Floors
Flooring can transform the look of a room, the key is picking the best hardwood floor for your design aesthetic and use.
- Solid Hardwood – the hardwood is the entire thickness of the board. Learn the pros and cons, such as not using it in basements.
- Engineered Hardwood – there is a hardwood layer on top of an engineered platform. This allows for more options such as wider planks and textures.
Hardwood Flooring Options
In addition to width, length and texture, there are other options to consider when selecting your hardwood floor.
- Oiled or fumed hardwood floors are beautiful and help hide scratches.
- Consider parquet flooring, such as a stunning herringbone or chevron pattern, for impact.
- Custom wood accessories from mosaics to flush-mounted vents and nosings finish your floors.
- Hardwood stairs make their own design statement.

Types of Hardwood Flooring We Carry:
Most of our hardwood species can come as either a solid or engineered floor with other considerations such as the width of planks, thickness, and texture. Select from unfinished or pre-finished hardwood in many species such as White Oak, Red Oak, Birch, Ash, Hickory, Walnut, Maple and more.
Oak – We offer North American Red Oak and White Oak, and European White Oak hardwood flooring. They have similar grains, however, the coloration will vary. European White Oak floors can be fumed where the tannins of the wood naturally darken.
Hickory – Hickory hardwood flooring is 40% harder than Red Oak, has a softer grain similar to Walnut, and comes with lots of color variation.
Walnut– North American Black Walnut is popular because of its desirable deep brown tones and creamy sapwood. Walnut is around 25% softer than Red Oak and not ideal for a busy home or heavy dogs. A hand-scraped or brushed Walnut floor helps camouflage some wear.
Maple – Maple is a very light-colored hardwood and is softly grained. It is a popular choice for clients looking for clean lines and a subtle floor. Vintage Hardwood’s engineered floor called Etched does a linear wire brushing that helps to hide wear.
Birch – Yellow Birch is a popular choice for clients that want some grain, but not a heavy grain in their hardwood flooring. This is a unique flooring that has a holographic appearance on some of its boards. Birch is slightly softer than Red Oak and can be a great choice.
Sapele – Known as African Mahogany, Sapele is 16% harder than Red Oak. Sapele floors often have a ribboned grain and a traditional flat sawn grain that is soft and subtle. It is a unique-looking hardwood commonly sold in its natural rich browns and burgundies but available in a variety of colors that look great with the ribboned grain.
Ash – White Ash is a durable wood that is 2% harder than Red Oak but much more stable and has a grain that’s slightly more elongated. Its light-yellow sunny tones look great in Natural however Ash hardwood floors also come in a variety of stains. Hakwood Flooring has a beautiful fumed Ash called Blaze that is a unique rich golden colour.
