When it comes to finding a beautiful floor for your home or property, few options beat hardwood flooring. Whether you want a cozy, rustic look or an elegant dark cherry, hardwood flooring lasts for the life of your home and increases its value. Beyond looks and investment, hardwood floors are durable, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean.
Alfreds Carpet One Floor & Home in London, ON, is your local hardwood flooring store. We carry the best hardwood flooring brands and products, including those specifically designed to weather our Canadian climate.
We carry a beautiful selection of natural hardwood flooring styles. Decide between a rustic finish or a glossy, sleek sheen. We also have whitewashed and multi-colour wood floors, as well as narrow and wide planks. You can choose beveled edges and differing lengths. Our experienced team will listen to your ideas and suggest the best products to suit your taste.
Beyond style, we also have a range of hardwood species to choose from. Our modern hardwood floors include natural oak floors, maple, hickory, cherry, birch, exotics, and much more. Each species has varying characteristics, like hardness, scratch resistance, and moisture absorption. They can also transform colours over the years.
There are two primary types of hardwood floors: solid and engineered. Factors to consider include humidity levels in the room, the level of foot traffic you expect, how long you want your floor to last, and whether there is potential for spills and moisture exposure.
Solid hardwood planks are the traditional form of natural wood flooring and have been used by homeowners and builders for hundreds of years. Each panel is made from one continuous piece of genuine hardwood throughout – there’s no composite wood, lamination, or layering involved.
Engineered hardwood panels have a genuine cut of hardwood at the surface, laminated to layers of composite wood below. This structure creates dimensional stability and prevents the planks from warping from humidity, moisture, and heavy use.
While solid hardwood floors should only be installed in dry, above-grade rooms, engineered hardwood is more versatile. You can put it in basements, along with kitchens, entryways, and other moisture-prone spaces. Most versatile of all is our waterproof hardwood collection, which can be installed in bathrooms and high-moisture areas without worry. Hardwood-floor bedrooms and wood-floor living rooms are also popular options, as well as hallways, stairways, and home offices.
