Why is hardwood flooring so popular?

No one can ever question the allure of wood flooring! These floors are warm, elegant and charming and, since the floor is usually the first thing people see when they enter your house, it makes one great impression. Please read further to know why these floors are so well-loved.

Versatile to work with any decor

One of the comments we hear most often in our hardwood flooring company is how well these floors work with any decor. Hardwood floors look just as great in a rustic atmosphere as in a California coastal one. People also love all the stains that can make them lighter or darker--or blazing red, like Brazilian cherry. So suppose you decide to change your decor, no worries. Just have the floors sanded and stained another color!

They’re long-lasting

Solid hardwood flooring, especially, can last up to 100 years. Scratches are often in the veneer and not the wood itself, so a simple or more thorough refinishing will bring them back to their original luster. That translates to minimal or non-existent replacement costs, making wood floors a cost-effective choice.

Other reasons to want them in your home include:

  1. Increased property values: At least 70% to 80% of the purchase price is added to your home worth. That means a home once valued at $300K could become worth at least $312K or higher.
  2. Faster sales with higher prices: Real estate sales associates around the country tell us that prospective buyers will often pay 2.5% more for a home with wood floors and that, of course, these homes sell faster because of the visual appeal.
  3. Great for indoor air quality. Solid hardwood is all-natural. There are no toxic fumes or chemicals to breathe in; plus, trees, even when cut, turn carbon dioxide into oxygen.
