When it comes to elegance and glamour in your home, look no further than hardwood, and purchase it at Young Interiors in Myrtle Beach. Hardwood adds richness and warmth, and is versatile enough to suit any style, from traditional and modern, to casual, airy and cottage-like.
It’s just as gorgeous as solid hardwood, and comes in an assortment of colors and species. However, Red Oak, Hickory and Brazilian Cherry are the most popular, both for aesthetics and hardness.
Only the construction is different. Engineered hardwood is just multiple layers of wood. The fibers, rather than being parallel like solid hardwood, cross each other, and that gives it the toughness and moisture-resistance for which it’s so well known.
Because it’s real wood, this hardwood also has those incredibly beautiful undertones, such as red, orange, ashy gray, etc. Create contrast, or highlight something to bring those tones out; for instance, if you have a view of the ocean, the combination of the blue water, paired with a wood floor that has an orange tone, can create a breathtaking look.
If you think you might want to sell your home, fear not! Engineered hardwood provides the same great increased resale value as solid. Because it is real wood, it can be advertised as such, and studies show that buyers are willing to pay more for a house with wood flooring.
