For those who would like to have hardwood in the basement, you also have the option of engineered wood. While it is comprised of several layers of composite material, the top veneer layer of engineered wood is, in fact, real hardwood. If you choose a thicker layer, you can even refinish it a couple of times before needing to replace it, just like solid wood.
Engineered hardwood includes a wear layer on the very top that gives it a ruggedness as well as a resistance to water. That durability really comes in handy in those high traffic areas and pays off when you have children in the home as well. Since its real wood, you still have the look and feel of the real thing, but less of a maintenance schedule and care calendar. It can be placed just about anywhere since it doesn't react to humidity and temperature changes the way that solid wood does.
