Hardwood flooring comes with numerous benefits, but the number one reason why people often prefer hardwood floors is their attractive appearance. Hardwood floors are available in numerous options, including varying colors, consistencies, designs, and grain patterns. With so many types of trees and woods, there are so many options to provide you with the exact look you want. Not only do hardwood floors add additional beauty to your home, they also increase the value.
One of the major benefits of hardwood flooring is how durable it is. While it can get scratched and scuffed, it is easy to simply resand and refinish it every so often. Assuming it doesn’t become damaged due to moisture, hardwood will last the lifetime of the home with proper maintenance. Additionally, opposed to many other types of flooring, hardwood floors are much more stain resistant due to the protective layer of finish. This ensures that your home continues to look beautiful.
Hardwood floors are also much better than, say, carpeting because they stay much cleaner and safer. Dust, germs, and other debris can, easily, get into the fibers of carpeting to hide. With hardwood floors, there is nowhere for it all to hide. This makes your flooring much safer for everyone in your home, especially children.
Hardwood flooring is also a much more sustainable option. Unlike carpeting or tile flooring, hardwood is renewable. Production of the materials is also much greener in that the production process requires much less water and energy. If you, one day, decide to replace your hardwood, the materials can even be recycled.
While they tend to be a bit more expensive up front, we believe you will be thrilled with your investment in hardwood floors. Their benefits truly outweigh the up-front cost and we are confident you will love them.
