Most people have thought about installing hardwood floors at one time or another. The natural beauty of wood brings a soft, elegance to any home. Today, hardwoods are not just for floors. Modern homes feature hardwoods for counters, backsplashes, and even entire walls. Traditionally and expensive material to work with, there are inexpensive hardwoods that will bring that ambiance you crave with a price tag that won’t shock your wallet. Top 3 Inexpensive Hardwoods

1. Bamboo – Our first inexpensive hardwood isn’t really wood at all. Bamboo is actually a grass yet it’s harder than most hardwoods. Bamboo comes in only two shades – light and dark (boiled) – yet because of the variety in the plant itself, there are many color options available.

2. Hickory – Hickory is most often used in rustic or country style homes. A very strong wood, it’s perfect for homes with high traffic and provides great durability and value for the price. With proper stain, hickory can take on a light, pine, tone or a darker, richer look.

3. Lyptus – Never heard of lyptus? You’re not alone. Lyptus is commonly mistaken for mahogany. Beautiful and durable, lyptus costs a fraction of the cost of actual mahogany and provides the same lustrous look.

Hardwoods come in a large variety of tones, hardness, and finishes. With so many to choose from and nice options starting at prices comparable to quality carpet, many homeowners and designers are incorporating hardwoods in their homes than ever before.
