Why You Should Invest in Wood Flooring

 


 

If you are building a new home or renovating your current one, choosing the right flooring can seem overwhelming at points. There are a lot of things to take into consideration when selecting the right flooring for your home including price, quality, longevity, and looks.

 

Wood flooring has become all the rage these days because of its aesthetic and the vast array of color options available to match any interior. Many people are usually deterred from installing wood flooring in their homes because of the price tag. While this is a genuine concern, looking at wood flooring as an investment might change your mind.

 

It Looks Great 

Hardwood and wood laminate flooring have become one of the most popular flooring choices for a variety of reasons. The most standout reason is just their aesthetic. Wood floors are timeless and provide phenomenal durability to last for years if properly maintained. They also can be stained in a wide variety of color options to match any interior color scheme. Also, there’s nothing more satisfying than sliding across a slick wood floor in your socks.

 

Up Your Property Value 

Hardwood flooring can up your home's resale value tremendously should you ever choose to sell it in the future. It is one of the first things that homebuyers notice when viewing a house, even before the spacious walk-in closets and backyard pool. What is under their feet can sometimes make or break their decision to purchase the home or not and nothing makes a better first impression that wood flooring.

 

When people see carpet or cheap linoleum all throughout a house, they immediately think "fixer-upper." Hardwood and wood laminate flooring, on the other hand, is instantly recognizable as a modern, yet comfortably familiar material that will last for years to come.

 

Wood flooring doesn't echo when you walk on it, and it feels sturdy and substantial with every step. Wood flooring is a universal sign of quality and will affect prospective buyer’s impressions of the entire property.

 

It’s Versatile 

Wood flooring looks phenomenal with almost any interior palette making it one of the most versatile flooring options available today. Also, while you may have to rip up and replace carpets and another flooring when you're tired of the color, wood can change color throughout the years.

 

Wood flooring can be stained a wide variety of colors either directly from the factory or during installation. And over the years, if you ever get tired of the shade you had initially chosen, you can choose to re-stain the flooring to match your current tastes.

 

Hardwood vs. Engineered Wood 

Although it may seem hard to believe, the two types of wood flooring provide similar returns on investment. When deciding which flooring to choose, the rule of thumb is that hardwood floors are best for dry climates while engineered wood floors work best in humid climates.
