Kentucky is located in the southern United States and has a humid climate and experiences four complete seasons each year. Temperatures in the summer can get very hot, so it is important to consider this when choosing a flooring product. Hardwood can expand in hot, humid climates so if you are installing hardwood in a Kentucky home, be sure you are doing so in an above grade, temperature controlled room. The same considerations should be made for bamboo and synthetic tiles that can also expand and buckle in extreme temperatures.
While much of Kentucky is rural, there are several interesting urban areas, including Louisville. Louisville, Kentucky is the largest city in the state, and is home to one of the largest historic preservation districts in the US, Old Louisville. Old Neighborhood showcases mostly brick, Victorian-style structures with an abundance of stained glass windows. There is also a high concentration of residential homes throughout this unique historic preservation. In rural areas of Kentucky, one of the more popular styles of home is the ranch. Ranch homes are typically one story homes built on several acres of land. The interiors of ranches can vary between hardwood floors to laminate and in some cases, natural stone.
