The majority of hardwood shoppers often don’t realize that there are two types of wood, i.e., the solid and the engineered. Both wood types do exist in plenty of options, styles, and stains. Besides, they both add value and structure to your home. But what’s the difference between them? Well, engineered hardwood is usually made from high-quality plywood with a thin layer of actual hardwood on top.
On the other hand, solid hardwood is usually constructed with 100% hardwood, with each plank having a single solid piece. Comparatively, solid hardwood is often strong and lasts longer as compared to the engineered counterpart. However, solid hardwood is usually much expensive to acquire and to maintain. Contrarily, the engineered hardwood is often affordable. Besides, they come in a variety of styles and colors.
