As supply pressure and price increases continue to plague the hardwood market, manufacturers are working diligently to stabilize the category while meeting increasing consumer demand.
Technological advancements in computers, tablets and smartphones have created an age of mobility, and with it an entirely new selling format - online shopping. And while the percentage of flooring sold online is still relatively low, online purchases continue to grow.
Demand for hardwood flooring is indeed strong and sales of the category have grown, even with the pressure the lumber shortage is putting on the category.
