From underfoot comfort to natural insulations, carpets have many advantages for your home or office. But so so do wood floors!
Oftentimes, the first question you have when choosing how to floor your room or house is What will this look like? Hardwood is one of the oldest and most versatile flooring materials. And it never goes out of style! With a wide range of trees and wood types, an endless variety of colors, consistencies, designs, finishes, grains and patterns, the options can seem endless. Unlike carpeting where you might spend hours trying to match colors and styles, hardwood floors make any room look good. Warm colors and natural looks give your home a clean, elegant appearance.
Despite a greater initial cost, with proper care and maintenance, hardwood flooring is a sound investment that increases your home’s value and pays off in the long run.
Low Maintenance and High Durability
Ever walk into a 100-year-old house to find original hardwood floors that still look amazing? With proper care and maintenance, hardwood floors can last a lifetime. Compared to carpeting, hardwood floors require minimal maintenance to keep them in good shape. Sweep or vacuum them when they get dirty and use a wood cleaner every now and then when they need a good shine. Hardwood floors are also much more resistant to spills and stains.
Hardwood floors do get scraped, scratched, scuffed, dented and damaged – especially in high traffic areas. However, you can repair it instead of replacing it. A simple sanding and refinishing is all it takes to bring your floors back to their former luster.
Hardwood flooring never goes out of style and goes well with any décor. From the kitchen to the bedroom, hardwood flooring offers a sleek, modern look that can be left alone or paired with area rugs and runners to create the perfect combination of carpet and wood.
Allergens like pet dander and dust tend to build up in carpet, but don’t have as many hiding places in hardwood floors. Hardwood doesn’t hide harmful allergens, making for a healthier, safer living environment for you and your family.
