Factory-finished solid wood flooring is a convenient alternative to unfinished boards. One primary difference between unfinished and prefinished boards is the length of the finish warranty. Factory finishes are more powerful than finishes applied in the home, so prefinished boards usually have longer warranties. Also, consider that floors that are constructed with prefinished wood have a beveled look. Each type of flooring can be refinished if needed.
Engineered wood floors offer the same classic beauty as solid hardwood floors with a few added perks. The base under the surface layer of hardwood, made up of plywood layers placed in different directions, can tolerate moisture. Further, most of these man-made wood planks click and lock together so the floor can float over the subfloor. Therefore, engineered wood flooring can be installed in the basement, and it's a good option for kitchens.
