Choose hardwood for beauty and long life

 
Solid hardwood flooring is, hands down, one of the most sought-after floor coverings on the market today. The reasons are simple. They not only provide one of the most gorgeous appearances possible, but they offer a lifespan that can reach 100 years with proper care and maintenance. Some floors last even longer, which only adds to the value of your home over time. They’re also incredibly durable, especially when care has been given to selecting the proper characteristics, and maintenance is never harsh or hard to bear.

The basics of hardwood flooring

 
Every hardwood flooring purchase starts out by figuring out what your exact needs are with regard to average traffic and general lifestyle. Since picking a species is the first step in your new flooring, it’s important to find one that matches the activity level in your home. Some species are very soft and they range all the way to very hard, with harder species being more appropriate for busier homes. This decision directly affects the overall lifespan of your flooring, so it’s important to choose the right materials.

Just as important, especially to you as a homeowner, are the choices of stain color and type of finish. With an extensive variety of stain colors, you’ll be able to find the one that best matches your furnishings and stands up well under the lighting you have in each room. These options range from clear coats, which are great for the natural hues found in cherry and walnut, to stains so dark they are nearly black. With regard to finishes, it’s important to know that some help to alleviate signs of wear and tear. For this purpose, you can choose wire-brushed, vintage, or distressed, to name a few.

Make sure you speak with your flooring specialist about the necessity for professional installation when it comes to your wood floors.

Hardwood is strong

 
One reason that hardwood has remained a top flooring choice is the unparalleled strength and durability it offers. Hardwood is designed to last generations and endure heavy traffic without scuffing or wearing down.
 

Wood floors are clean & easy to maintain

 
Whether you live alone, with pets, or with a big family, hardwood is perfect if you’re looking for a low-maintenance, easy-to-clean flooring option. Spilled food and drinks, muddy shoes, and other messes that can be disastrous for some floors are no match for wood floors. With protective layers to prevent stains, hardwood is one of the easiest flooring styles to keep spotless.

Have allergies? Hardwood floors might be part of your solution. Carpet fibers can accumulate dust, debris, and other allergens, but that’s not the case with wood flooring. It can even improve your indoor air quality, making allergy season a breeze.

Is hardwood worth the investment?

 
Yes.

One of the biggest reasons people hesitate to choose hardwood flooring is the cost but it is worth the investment. Hardwood is easy to repair and refinish so even if it gets scratched or scraped it rarely needs to be replaced. Wood floors also raise property value, making them a valuable long-term investment.
