Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring has long been considered one of the preferred flooring options for homeowners. Wood floors have an elegant look that can add character and warmth to any room. In addition to the way they look, hardwood floors also have several other benefits including their durability, value, and variety of options available.

Durability

Hardwood floors stand the test of time and can last for 100 years if they are properly cared for. They are fairly easy to care for and only require sweeping and vacuuming as well as an occasional cleaning with a wood floor cleaner.

Value

Even though hardwood flooring may be a bit more expensive than some other flooring options, it can increase the resale value of your home. Homes with hardwood floors often sell faster, and for more money, than homes with just carpeting. Home buyers love hardwood floors which are often considered an upgraded feature.

Options

Hardwood flooring goes with all styles of decorating, from modern to traditional. There are a variety of styles available including strip, plank, and parquet. Wood floors are also available in a variety of woods including:

  • Cherry
  • Oak
  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Hickory
  • Pecan
  • And More

Hardwood flooring can be sanded and stained to fit the individual tastes of the homeowner. It can also be updated in the future to reflect a new decorating look in your home.

Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo flooring is another popular style similar to hardwood flooring. Bamboo flooring is environmentally friendly and flame resistant. It can actually be harder than hardwood, and can be nailed down, glued down, or floated.
