Flooring choice for a unheated 3 season room, but well insulated in Southern CT


Are solid hardwood oak or maple flooring good choices for an unheated, 3 season sunroom, insulated with R30 in the roofed ceiling, R 19 insulated under the 2nd story floor? The sunroom is the S/W exposure, 3 sided floor to ceiling dual pane argon filled windows, double glazed for winter heat retention and summer heat blocking? The longest side is against the house and the shortest side goes out from the house. The 3 season porch is entered frm the slider in the dining room, also behind the kitchen and one bathroom, gloing down length along the house. Also condsiderating engineer wood, floating floor. I understand that wood expands and contracts, thus space will be left under the molding for movement, also underlayment. The plywood base is 50yr waterproof. Thanks for your sharing of experience and opinions.
