When it comes to beautiful flooring, hardwood has long-term durability and beauty that your home deserves. Face of Wood has put together the main reasons why hardwood is both a valuable choice and the most durable choice for your home or business.
Have you ever though about those really old homes? The kind you find in places like New York and Boston? Those places were built over hardwood floors and after decades, if you go back, they are still there and looking good! Hardwood lasts! And it does last for a long time!
It’s naturally strong and can hold up for decades, maybe centuries, which adds longevity and value to your home. It is also easy to maintain. Do you think people from the 19th and the early 20th century had such amazing cleaning products like we have nowadays? How do you think they were able to maintain those floors? It’s easy to clean and maintain, that’s why!
It’s natural and it’s always “en vogue”, meaning that hardwood floors are never out of fashion! Never outdated.
And unlike other flooring choices, when your style changes, your hardwood floors can change, too. Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished to give your room an updated color, finish, or style. You can completely transform the look of your room without having to replace your floors when using hardwood flooring.
Hardwood is Gorgeous
The beauty of hardwood is undeniable. Its rich, warm, and classic characteristics add an elegant feel to any room. Whether you choose solid or engineered hardwood, there’s a wide range of choices to suit any style and budget. Popular hardwood species include oak, maple, acacia, and exotic (to name a few), and they all feature unique characteristics that can create different looks for different styles.
Hardwood is Versatile
Contrary to popular belief, hardwoods come in a variety of colors, including modern gray and bright blonde. With options including light, medium, dark, as well as gray, you’re sure to find the right hardwood color to fit your atmosphere.
There are also several finishes to consider with hardwood – from a traditional smooth to a unique distressed finish. Hand-scraped and wire-brushed finishes can be found in popular styles like farmhouse and rustic. Your hardwood finish can add a lasting touch of character to your room in an unexpected way.
With hardwood, you get a high-quality product with long-term value. So, when it comes to your flooring, the real question isn’t why hardwood. It’s why not hardwood?
