What’s Best in Boca Raton, Hardwood Flooring or Laminate Flooring?

If you’re looking for hardwood flooring in Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Parkland or any of the other South Florida communities that Kuhn Flooring Company of Palm Beach County serves, you have a number of options.

At first glance, you wouldn’t think deciding between hardwood flooring and laminated hardwood flooring would be a tough choice.  Isn’t the real thing always better?

Not necessarily.

When laminate flooring was first introduced, there was considerably more of a difference between the two options. “But now, with laminate looking better and performing ever better, the decision gap has narrowed,” Lee Wallender says in a comparison between laminate and hardwood flooring that appeared on TheSpruce.com. “Laminate, in fact, outperforms hardwood in many categories. With the differences blurred, no longer are the two floor coverings like night and day.”

When comparing laminate flooring and solid hardwood flooring, it’s helpful to have an understanding of what each product is. Solid hardwood flooring installed by Kuhn’s is exactly what it sounds like: Florida flooring that is 100 percent wood.

Kuhn Flooring of Boca Raton, one of the highest-rated flooring companies in Palm Beach and Broward Counties, offers a wide variety of solid hardwoods, ranging from native species to some of the more exotic choices available for flooring in Pompano Beach homes, Boca Raton condos or as exceptional business flooring solutions in Delray Beach.

Visit our South Florida flooring gallery in either Lighthouse Point or in Coral Springs to learn more about our complete collection of solid hardwoods, many of which are available in a variety of widths and finishes, including satin and hand-scraped.

If you’re thinking of upgrading a home in Boca Raton with hardwood flooring, The Spruce cautions that there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.  Hardwood floors, they say are, “Difficult for non-professionals to install.” Fortunately, our Boca Raton flooring company has the expertise to install beautiful solid hardwood flooring in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Lighthouse Point, Highland Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and a host of other Palm Beach and Broward County communities.

Solid hardwood flooring also tends to be more expensive than laminate flooring. It is also vulnerable to UV rays and should not be used in a moist environment, like a bathroom.

At Kuhn’s Flooring Company of Boca Raton, we have provided quality laminated hardwood for customers looking for flooring in Pompano Beach, Parkland and Hypoluxo – as well as countless homes and businesses in between.  Laminate flooring in Florida means you don’t have to worry about drying and damage from the harsh rays of the sun.  Laminate hardwood flooring can also be used in bathrooms and kitchens, where moisture may make solid hardwoods less attractive. And, while giving you the wonderful, warm look of hardwood flooring for a Boca Raton home full of charm or a new restaurant in Coral Springs, laminate hardwood flooring also offers durability in a wide selection of tones, clarity and hues – all at an affordable price.

And let’s not forget hardwood engineered flooring!

Hardwood engineered flooring is the most popular choice among the options in wood flooring in Boca Raton and around the county.  As The Spruce notes, “Engineered wood is for those who want the look of wood but who have a practical bent.”

Not sure which is right for you?  Don’t worry!  The Boca Raton flooring experts from Kuhn’s can help you decide which option is best for you, whether you’re considering new flooring for a Pompano Beach townhouse or looking for practical commercial flooring solutions in South Palm Beach County!
