If you are like most people, you probably love the look and charm of real hardwood flooring. For centuries, people have used wood floors throughout their homes to add warmth and charm. Hardwood floors never seem to go out of fashion and can add real value to your home. Today, many designers recommend hardwood floors as the main base-layer and then suggest an accent rug to enhance the room’s overall interior color scheme.
Hardwood floors have quickly gained popularity with home-owners over the past decade. Economically, hardwood flooring makes great sense. Carpet and vinyl flooring generally needs to be replaced every 5-15 years but hardwood flooring can last a lifetime. Wood can also be cleaned more thoroughly than carpet or tile, which can trap dust and dirt. Also, hardwood floors can add strength to a home and provide better insulation than other types of flooring. The initial cost quickly pays for itself with hardwood.
A recent national survey of real estate agents states that 58 percent of homes with hardwood floors bring a higher price than comparable homes. A typical insulation of 500 square feet of hardwood flooring can add 5 percent to the value of a home according to the same survey. The initial cost quickly pays for itself with hardwood.
