Hardwood floors are just one of the many options that are available when it comes to flooring. Though there are a variety of choices, hardwood continues to be one of the most popular. There are a lot of reasons why we recommend hardwood, but here are just a few of the most common.
Hardwood flooring adds a lot of value to homes. We’ve found that a lot of home buyers look specifically for hardwood flooring because of its value and appeal. Also, homes that have hardwood flooring are usually listed at a higher price. This means that upgrading to hardwood flooring can increase the resale value of a home.
One of the reasons we suggest hardwood flooring is because it is such a classic addition to a home. Hardwood has yet to go out of style, even though it has been around for a long time. Hardwood flooring goes with so many different styles and tastes, and it appeals to many different homeowners.
Hardwood is fairly easy to clean when compared to other options. We’ve found that many people prefer sweeping over vacuuming, which makes hardwood an ideal option. Though it requires occasional polishing, maintenance can be less time consuming and expensive than with other types of flooring, like carpet.
Within the hardwood category, there are many options. There are different woods to choose from which all have different strengths and grains. There are also many stains and colors to pick from, which makes it easy to find the right choice.
One of the best options for those with pets or children is hardwood floors. This is because they don’t trap dirt, bacteria, dust, pet dander or hair, or other allergens like carpets or other types of flooring can. They also don’t require harsh chemicals to clean them or disinfect them, which is why we suggest hardwood to those with pets or kids.
Hardwood is made to last a long time, and it does. Though it may cost a bit more to install upfront, hardwood floors can be refinished, polished, and used for many years to come. Other flooring options are not usually as durable, and do not last as long as hardwood flooring does.
Hardwood floors are a classic choice that can be a great investment into the value of a home. The fact that they are easy to clean and can last a long time makes them appealing to many. Hardwood flooring is also available in many grains and colors, which allows it to match many different styles. They are a great option for those who may have allergies or other health problems because they are easy to clean, and don't harbor unwanted allergens.
