Hardwood flooring is a natural and long-lasting choice for home flooring. It still comes with maintenance responsibilities. Before you do anything else, you must consider the advantages and of installing premium engineered wood flooring in your home.
While hardwood floorings are durable, long-lasting and can withstand spills and stains with proper treatment, they are more prone to water damage (kind of like the wicked witch of the west); this makes them a risky candidate for areas like your bathroom, kitchen, and entryways. Installing hardwood flooring in rooms where they are overexposed to water will lead to damage to the flooring.
It is a known fact that hardwood flooring will increase the value of your home. Most home buyers will opt for the wooden flooring property rather than the carpet flooring because the wooden flooring properties are long-lasting. The initial payment of the wooden flooring properties is worth the money.
If you have small children and pets at home, then you must clean your carpet daily to keep it away from the pet’s hair. If you are allergic to pets and pollens, you can be sure that hardwood floorings are much easier to clean, maintain. Also, you will experience fewer attacks. Most of the woods used for flooring materials are sustainably sourced and use non-toxic adhesives and finishes.
Hardwood floors are timeless in this modern décor world; it was considered a luxury interior decoration asset as early as the 1600s and is popular even till date. If you choose engineered wood flooring, it will never go out of style as long as your home stands. According to various magazines, hardwood stands for fine taste and luxury. It is the shiny glaze and warmth of the wood which makes people fall for it.
The following are the things to consider when you set your hardwood flooring budget.
The following are the three main hardwood flooring options.
Solid hardwood flooring: It is a term that is used for planks of wood, cut directly from the tree. It is the same as what you think it would be; this is the type of flooring that has been in practice over the ages. It is the most natural and customizable type of wooden flooring. If you are choosing this option, you can have any wood species, stain and flooring finish you like.
Engineered hardwood flooring: You don’t have to get confused with engineered and laminate wood flooring where the latter is a semi man made product. It is made up of several layers of real wood. The top layer of the material is a piece of solid wood lamella. Thus, if you choose this option, grains and colors are preserved.
Laminate flooring: It is another option to choose if you’re looking for an option to convert your normal property to luxury property. This type of flooring is extremely easy to clean and they are also very less prone to water and sun damage.
