Newly built home in Austin, texas, post closing plan is to remove tile and install hardwood floor all over the first floor including bathroom ( 1800 Sq Ft) - so far we liked - Johnson Hardwood Maple Moonshine (engineered)

However, facing dilemma - solid vs engineered hardwood - final decision should hold good for kitchen and bathroom as well- we won't have pets or water spill situation.

Definitely want piece of mind and low maintenance ( laid back nature )

cabinets (medium fade dark brown)- enclosed pic.

Because, of smaller living room- we wish to have wide plank ( not sure if below dimensions are wide plank)

Will seek professional help to install.

Will this go well post replacing tile?
