Other things to consider are:
- Species type. Not all hardwoods are the same. You'll need to consider the room in which it's installed and if the space is light or dark, large or small. You also need to think about extra durability needs that require a harder wood and whether you like many knots and grains.
- Also, consider the plank width. Wider ones are trending and are more traditional. They also show knots and patterns better. Narrow planks are more casual, contemporary, and best for smaller rooms.
- Consider grain patterns. Logs are cut three different ways: plain-sawn, rift-sawn, and quarter-sawn. All three yield three different grain patterns. Be sure to ask about the variations.
- Think about installation. Solid is a tongue and groove; then, it's nailed. Engineered also offers a floating floor. This is a technique where pieces click together, then hover over a subfloor.
