Hardwood flooring is a versatile product that can suit any style of home. It has several advantages over other flooring options such as carpet or tile. Not only can hardwood be matched to any style of décor while bringing a comforting warmth to the space, but it provides a long list of non-aesthetic benefits as well.
Hardwood floors provide a natural insulation that also adds to a home’s structural strength. Not only that, but hardwood is an investment that will hold its value and can often last generations with minor care and maintenance. Any damage can usually be patched and blended, eliminating the need to tear the entire floor up and replace it. Due to being installed over a subfloor, it also provides some acoustic, sound-dampening benefits, second only to carpeting.
Wood is a renewable resource which means the environmental impact of producing hardwood flooding is lower than many other flooring options. Hardwood is also generally responsible for fewer chemical emissions and is often recommended to homeowners with allergies due to this and how easy it is to clean.
Hardwood floors don’t trap the heat the way carpet can, helping to lower your energy bills by keeping your home cooler in the summer months. Hardwood is also considered a safer type of flooring, the safest next to carpet, for infants and young children due to it not being as slick as laminate or tile.
