Thinking about installing hardwood. I can’t decide whether to go with the ‘real’ stuff’ of with engineered. I’m installing over a joisted subfloor so either one will work. Because the room is huge I want to go with wider and longer boards to avoid a checker board effect. So for price I think engineered might be cheaper. Also, I don’t want that terrible hallow sound you can get from floors like those at the mall. Is that possible with engineered flooring.
