Which Flooring Type Is Best for My Home?

"There are different flooring applications for different areas of the home. You have to be cognizant of what you want to attain in those areas." - Tom Kahn, DirectBuy

Even a flooring type like hardwood consists of multiple choices, such as engineered wood and alternative woods, like bamboo. How do you know which is right for your home?
