Ask Charles Cherney - Question #36

What are the most popular choices for hardwood flooring?

What are the most popular choices for hardwood flooring?
The short answer is oak and maple.

In my market - Cambridge and Somerville, Massachusetts - oak is definitely the most popular choice for hardwood flooring, with maple a distant second. Other hardwood flooring types we see in Cambridge and Somerville are pine, fir, bamboo, Brazilian cherry and birch - and still others. There are actually a lot of types when it comes to hardwood floors!

Recently, I discovered an amazing online resource all about hardwood floors - There's not much that Debbie Gartner - The Flooring Girl - does not know about hardwood floors. Go girl! In particular, I recommend you check out her post on The Most Popular Choices for Hardwood Flooring.
