Solid hardwood flooring is a look that never goes out of style. Along with being one of the highest-end, most attractive flooring choices, it increases the value of your home and is a great long-term investment. Solid hardwood flooring is constructed with 100% hardwood and each plank is a single solid piece of wood, so if you want to change the color of the floor, it can be refinished rather than replaced.

Solid Hardwood and Water Don’t Mix

If you’re thinking about new floors for your bathroom, kitchen, or any room that might see a splash or spill, you need to consider that hardwood floors are not suited for all places.

Empire® carries dozens of options, like vinyl plank flooring, laminate flooring, and tile, for almost any look or budget.



If you have pets, you need to be mindful that solid hardwood floors are a natural material and they can scratch over time. While there are things you can to do help minimize scratching from pet’s nails, Empire recommends choosing an alternative wood look flooring that is more scratch-resistant, especially if you share your home with an active dog.
