Wood floors have been a favorite among homeowners since families first decided dirt wasn’t so great an option. There are many reasons why choosing wood flooring is smart, but when it comes to beauty, longevity, and toughness, wood just can’t be beaten.
We’re obviously a little partial but ask anyone: hardwood floors are just the best. See the top three reasons you’re going to love yours.
Always Contemporary. Carpet, tile, and other flooring options tend to come on red hot before cycling out of fashion. Wood is always in style, which also helps to increase the resale value of homes. Investing in a hardwood floor is a great way to make your home more appealing to potential buyers because it’s very unlikely they’ll change it.
A Fresh (Re) Finish. Wood floors get some criticism for taking a beating. It’s true; scrapped chairs, kids, pets, and the general wear-and-tear of life can age your wood floors. Of course, you can also wait until those kids get older to refinish your floors and make them look like new! That’s why you can still see the original flooring in homes that are over one hundred years old and still fall in love with the hardwood planks under your feet.
Allergy-Friendly For Life. Those with seasonal or recurring allergies know just what a pain carpets and rugs can be. Wood floors are the easiest to clean and won’t trap pollen, pet dander, dust, or other irritants to bug you at home. That’s why many experts recommend wood floors for those with respiratory issues or nagging allergies.
Finally, we’ll add the unofficial perk of knowing your flooring is natural. By avoiding plastics and some treated woods, you’ll be using a renewable material to add beauty and value to your home for generations to come.
