With the popularity of wood flooring growing every day, is it
time for you to update your home with a sleek and warm hardwood
floor? For benefits like its timeless appeal and low maintenance,
hardwood is a durable and high quality choice of flooring that has
proven to be an everlasting staple in old and new homes alike.
Some of the most appealing aspects of hardwood flooring are:
Aesthetic Appeal - Hardwood floors provide a
luxurious, high-end look to your home. It is one of the few
flooring types that have never gone out of style. Most interior
designers agree that hardwood flooring accentuates almost any décor
and adds a touch of elegance to any home. The common misconception
about hardwood flooring is that there are not many options
available. Quite to the contrary, today's marketplace contains
various choices of wood grains, color, and wood types made to fit
your taste and home.
Quality - Wood is undoubtedly one of the most
dependable and long-lasting flooring types out there. In areas with
high foot traffic, other flooring types often need replacement
fairly frequently. While some people find themselves replacing
dirty, worn carpet every few years, hardwood floors can last well
over 10 years and still hold its high quality and dependability.
The durability and strength of hardwood floors ends up being well
worth its initial investment. It also is fairly well known that
homeowners who replace their carpeted home with hardwood end up
receiving higher offers when selling their home.
Low Maintenance - Let's face it, families tend
to be messy. Whether they are tracking their muddy shoes through
your clean kitchen or dropping a whole plate of spaghetti on the
dining room floor, children and even some adults can create large
messes that can be difficult to clean. The benefit of hardwood
floors is that you don't have to worry about those mishaps causing
long-term damage. Hardwood floors are extremely low maintenance
because those spills or stains can be mopped, wiped up, or scrubbed
down in no time.
Clean and Safe - Thinking about spring and
summer gives most people a feeling of relaxation. But to many, this
time of year only brings one thought to mind -- allergies. What
many people don't realize is that your home can be hurting you as
much as that pesky pollen building up outside. Carpet is a
collector of dander, mold, mildew, and dust -- common triggers for
many allergy sufferers. Hardwood floors do not collect or hold in
harmful matter, ultimately allowing you to breathe easier because
of cleaner air.
