On this construction project we put down true 3/4 inch hard wood flooring. This is probably one of my favorite floors to put down. They are initially a little spendy to put down but in the long run is a good investment. The hardwood floors will last nearly forever and are abs0lutely beautiful. I think there is a place for this flooring in everyone’s kitchen or high traffic room. They are not nearly as hard as tile, so your dishes will not break as easy, they are simple to clean, and are warm on your feet..
