5 Reasons To Choose Hardwood Flooring - Articles Surfing
If you're choosing flooring for your home, why not think about installing a hardwood floor in a couple of rooms? A wood floor is a beautiful and enduring alternative to a carpet or laminate floor and it will transform the look and feel of a room dramatically, due to its warm hues and individuality.
If you need some convincing, have a look at the following:
Your wooden floor will be truly unique, not only because of the natural grain, which cannot be duplicated, but also because you have the option of designing your own floor. Many companies design bespoke wooden floors, so that you get to choose the exact pattern you'd like on your floor. Mixing woods together gives a fabulous effect and any pattern of your choosing can be created.
Wood has been used in the home for centuries to bring warmth and character to every style of d'cor. It is hard to match its timeless beauty and a wooden floor will add a touch of class to any home. Contrary to popular belief, a real wood floor retains the warmth and keeps draughts at bay.
Unlike a carpet, where dust and dust mites can get trapped in the pile, even with the most powerful vacuum cleaner, a wood floor could help end allergy and respiratory problems, because it is easy to clean and keep free of dust.
The wear and tear of everyday life can take its toll on a carpet, but a hard wearing wood floor will last for years if looked after properly. It requires minimal maintenance to keep it looking good.
Unlike a carpet, a wooden floor will last for years and could increase the value of your property. Furthermore, a wooden floor need not cost much more than a quality carpet, and in the long run it will probably work out to be the cheaper option.
