Hardwood floors are always in style. They are timeless and can easily blend into the architectural period of any home design.

Many people rule out hardwood floors when refinishing a home because the price tag drives them away, but hardwood floors are a worthwhile investment! 

Here are a few reasons to consider adding hardwood floors to your home.

Add Value to Your Home

Hardwood floors have currency because they are desirable to home buyers. One day if you decide to put your house on the market, your hardwood floors could increase your home’s value. The rooms in your home you choose to have hardwood flooring installed also significantly impacts the selling price. Some people like to have every room but their bedrooms and bathrooms finished because these areas are typically cooler in temperature than most, especially if you’re walking barefoot between the two.

Infinite Design Options

Hardwood floors are a long-term investment, but the quality you receive for the price you pay is worth it to many homeowners. What’s great about having this type of flooring installed is that you can fashion your rooms in almost any style imaginable. Wood is not a style-discriminating material; whether your home is minimalist, mid-century modern, or industrial-looking architecturally, hardwood floors will enhance any build.

Environmentally Beneficial

Wood is a sustainable building material, making it a top choice for carpenters. The process through which the material is extracted does little harm to the environment because trees are renewable. Wood can also endure centuries of wear and tear, so you won’t have to worry about replacing the hardwood every few years as some homeowners do with other flooring materials.

Efficient Engineered Wood Floors

Engineered hardwood flooring is generally manufactured with 2, 3, or 5 thin sheets, or plies, of wood that are laminated together to form one plank. Then a wood veneer is added to the top layer. Some people feel concerned that this is not true “solid” wood, but it is structurally better for areas where humidity and temperature are not so easily controlled, like on a concrete floor or in a basement or summer home. All the other properties of hardwood are the same. Today’s finishes are extremely durable against scratching and sunlight, so your investment will look great for years and years!
