The Draw of Beautiful Solid Hardwood Floors

No other element of a house exudes warmth and traditional style quite like a hardwood floor. Just entering a room with a rich, earth-toned foundation is enough to make you feel at home, isn't it?

But like many elements in home design, the looks are just the beginning. Hardwood floors have become the preferred option over other floor coverings, and here are a few reasons why:

  • Durability – Hardwood floors can take a lot of wear and tear as long as basic steps are taken regularly to protect them from moisture and scratching. 
  • Longevity - Authentic wood floors can last hundreds of years if maintained properly. And even for hardwood floors that suffer from scratches, dents and other damages, they can easily be repaired and renewed with a little sanding and refinishing.
  • Value – While the wood species you choose (like pine, walnut or bamboo) will directly affect how much your flooring will cost, any upgrade to hardwood will add value to your home.
  • Eco-Friendliness – All wood is a sustainable resource and hardwood flooring takes much less energy to manufacture than other types. What's even more beneficial is when your wood floors are either collected from a local lumber yard (which cuts down on transportation) or if the floors are made using reclaimed or recycled wood.
