Considering installing hardwood floors in your home? Adding beautiful hardwood floors to your home enhances the aesthetic appeal and increases the value of your home immediately. Hardwood floors evoke elegance and style in any setting and easily blend into any décor. There are many options in the marketplace today, so choosing the right hardwood flooring for your home is very important to help you get the most enjoyment from your decision. At Premier Flooring, we have the largest selection of hardwoods from the richly-grained exotic woods, to the distinctive North American hardwoods. Our hardwood floors come from the finest manufacturers and have the finest finishes that will add beauty and charm to any room for many years. Here are some additional amazing benefits of hardwood flooring:
Thanks to durable finishes that are easy to repair, solid-wood floors can last for a hundred years or more. There are very few flooring materials that have been around as long as wood. Over the centuries, it has shown itself to be a lovely and durable floor choice. Other, newer materials have yet to prove themselves.
Coziness and Warmth
Not only is hardwood more pleasant to walk on than laminate (which always feel cold and a little “plastic” underfoot), but it is naturally warm. Wood is an excellent insulator, thanks to its thousands of tiny air chambers per cubic inch, which hold in heat.
Got allergies? Unlike carpets, wood floors don’t give pollen, animal dander, mold, etc. any place to hide and thrive. Even when you steam clean carpets, it’s impossible to get them entirely clean. In fact, getting them wet just makes things worse. Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for anyone with any kind of environmental allergies.
Easy to Clean
A little sweeping, a little mopping, and your hardwood floors will keep looking nice for a long time to come. Even families with dogs and kids are realizing that it’s easier to mop a hardwood floor than try to spray/scrub/wash grape Kool-Aid out of a carpet. Another perk is that a scratch here or a gouge there really just adds character to wood floors (of course, you can always have them refinished if you prefer perfection).
Increase Home Value
Unless you’re going to be living in the same house for the rest of your life, you should think about how the flooring choices you make today will affect the price you can get for your home when you sell it. Carpet will look old and used in just a few years, whereas wood floors last a long time and add value to a home (if you’ve ever watched those house hunter shows on television, you’ve doubtlessly seen just about every potential buyer looking around hopefully for hardwood floors).
