Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

The first item on every new homebuyers wishlist is typically hardwood flooring. It provides warmth, beauty, and a timeless appeal that easily incorporates into any style of décor. Did you know that there are several other reasons that make hardwood floors a must-have on your new home wishlist? Here are 5 more reasons to love hardwoods: 

Durability: Hardwood flooring has proved to be a durable product that has lasted over many decades of use. Combine it with the technology manufacturers have today to preserve its quality and you have a long-lasting investment. While other flooring options become tired and outdated, hardwood floors stay beautiful and timeless. 

Affordable: Today, it’s more affordable than ever to purchase hardwood flooring. Plus, if you consider the increase in value and appeal to future homebuyers, it becomes a smart, cost-effective decision. 

Easy to maintain: It only takes sweeping or vacuuming, and a little professional hardwood cleaner to remove stains or scuff marks. Over time, all hardwood fades or changes shades. Protect your investment by shading it from the sunlight as much as possible. 

Options: There are a wide variety of styles, shades, and types of wood to choose from. Whether you’re looking to add wood in the kitchen or a wood floor to contrast against a light background, you’ll be able to find the exact look and feel that fits your personality. 

Allergies: Richmond ranks high on the list of worst cities for allergies. If you’re one of the many sufferers affected, wood floors are a good option. Since hardwood floors don’t have any fibers to harbor allergy particles it will help reduce the problem and provide a healthier home for you and your family.
