1. Longevity

One of the most attractive qualities of hardwood floors is their longevity. Hardwood floors can last a lifetime. A wood floor is made of quality material; wood. Even in areas of high traffic, hardwood floors stand the test of time.

Hardwood floors also last a long time as far as interior design is concerned. Interior design styles and trends might change, but they always pair well with hardwood floors. That’s one of the reasons why hardwood floors increase the resale value of your home. All homeowners appreciate the quality of a hardwood floor.

Trends aside, hardwood floors also have a habit of getting more attractive over time. Unlike man made materials like linoleum, hardwood floors, if properly cared for, look better with age and increase in value over the years.

2. Low-Maintenance

Hardwood floors also attract homeowners because of their low-maintenance care. Hardwood floors are easy to clean. Your routine cleaning will only consist of sweeping or vacuuming—whichever you prefer. Hardwood floors are easy to clean because, unlike carpet, the surface doesn’t trap allergens or mold. This also makes them allergy friendly.

Depending on the kinds of traffic your floor experiences, you might consider having them re-polished every three to four years.

3. Restorable

It takes a lot to scratch hardwood floors. They can handle pets, kids and even high heels. However, if your hardwood floors experience water damage or other wear and tear you might consider having them restored.

After being sanded and repolished, your floors will look like new. If properly cared for over the years, hardwood floors have been known to last for ages.

Hardwood floors that have an aged or vintage appeal to them usually have years of wear to show for it. That does not make the flooring any less durable or reliable as brand new hardwood flooring.

4. Value

Hardwood floors might be more expensive to install than man made materials. However, the richness hardwood floors will add to your home’s interior and the durability they provide will be well worth the price. When you choose hardwood floors, you choose a high return on investment in your home.
