A Look at Solid Hardwood Flooring

a look at solid hardwood flooring nycHardwood flooring is one of the most classic choices for any home or business. It can give your space an elegant, timeless appearance. Well-maintained wooden floors can also last a lifetime or longer, which means a lot of return on your investment. An attractive wooden floor can even add to the resale value of your home or commercial property. There are many advantages to hardwood floors, but they are not suitable for all environments and uses. Read on for to learn more about wood flooring.

Appearance

Hardwood flooring can give your space an attractive, classic look. A wooden floor can make a room appear warm and welcoming without being too luxurious. Hardwood floors work well in old houses with uneven floors. They are also comfortable underfoot, especially when paired with plush rugs and runners.

Maintenance
Wood flooring is easy to clean. It attracts less dust and therefore fewer dust mites than carpet, making it an ideal choice for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. While wooden floors are relatively easy to maintain in good condition, it is important to prevent them from becoming waterlogged. Hardwood floors are therefore not recommended for use in most kitchens or in bathrooms unless properly sealed. You will need to polish your floor regularly if you wish it to maintain a high sheen.

Durability

Wood ages well and looks beautiful after decades—or, in some cases, centuries. Unevenesses, scratch marks, damage, and other imperfections can even add to the homely charm of your floor over the years. And the best part is that solid wood flooring can be sanded and refinished to look like new countless times.

A hardwood floor can add to the charm and character of your property, and can also increase its resale value.
