Are there affordable options for hardwood flooring?

Engineered wood is a high-quality alternative to solid hardwood flooring, and because it is the more versatile floor covering, it may be the best option for your application.

1 Stop Interiors is a flooring shop in Bellingham, WA, that offers affordable hardwood floors. We also provide many popular wood species like oak and hickory and trendy styles like wire-brushed.

Plank composition

Engineered wood planks have a layer of hardwood on the surface and a base of several layers of plywood positioned in different directions. This wood flooring can tolerate moisture due to the layered construction.

Thus, engineered wood flooring is good for basements, kitchens, and traditional home spaces like family rooms.


Engineered wood costs less than solid wood, and labor and supplies are less costly since manufactured planks click and lock together. That means installers can construct a floating floor without attachment to the subfloor.

As with plank composition, installation design makes engineered wood a more versatile flooring choice since it can be laid on concrete slabs.

A few considerations

Engineered hardwood flooring can be found in a wide price range, but investing in a top-quality brand with a thick hardwood layer that can be refinished once is prudent.

In addition, since dirt can mar the surface of wood floors, it's best to place doormats inside and outside entryways and establish a daily 'quick sweep' routine. Lastly, remember that engineered wood is not waterproof.
