Hardwood flooring is a great choice for your home. Here are some of the many benefits of choosing real wood floors:

Accentuates any décor

Most interior designers agree that hardwood flooring accentuates any décor and adds a special touch of elegance whether your style is contemporary or traditional. The timeless appeal and beauty of quality wood floors enhances your furnishings and allows you to create the ambience you desire whether you’re going for a warm comfortable atmosphere or a smooth contemporary feeling. With simple maintenance, you can enjoy stunning wood floors that will retain their elegance and appeal through the years.

Allergies

Many families experience the frustration of allergies produced by dust and other irritants that collect in carpets over time; even grout lines in tiles can collect allergens. Wood floors are the perfect choice if this is a consideration for you and your family. There are no grout lines or fibres to harbour these harmful allergens, so your family can live in a much healthier environment. And for those concerned with preserving our ecosystem, it’s important to remember that wood is a renewable and recyclable material.

Investment in your home

If you consider the return on your investment for the addition of wood floors to your home, you’ll discover just how cost effective this investment is in raising the value and appeal of your home to a higher level. Most estate agents will tell you that wood floors make a huge difference to prospective buyers. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Wood Flooring Association, estate agents agree that houses with wood floors sell faster and bring higher prices than homes with other types of flooring.

Minimal care

With minimal care, wood floors will retain their beauty and elegance for many years, which is another reason to think about what a great investment it is. Tones deepen and grain patterns emerge with every passing year adding to the original beauty of your wood floors. It’s wise to follow the simple care suggestions to maintain them, then, all you have to do is enjoy your fabulous wood floors!

Wood floors for every room

Improvements in technology over the years have strengthened the durability factor of quality hardwoods. You can choose wood flooring that works in any room of your home – even kitchens and bathrooms. Wood floors have definitely evolved from use in formal living rooms and dining areas only. Of course it is important to choose the right type of wood and finish for use in higher–moisture areas.

One of the best features of choosing the wood floors that appeal most to you and your family is the uniqueness of your choice. Since the natural qualities in wood vary so greatly, you’ll never see another floor exactly like yours.
