9 Reasons to Invest in Real Wood Floors

A lot of people tend not to opt for real wood flooring as the installation can be quite expensive. However, there are many great benefits to wooden flooring which outweigh the initial cost. If you have the budget for the installation then here are 9 reasons which might just convince you.

Long Lasting
Good quality wooden flooring needs minimal maintenance and will last for decades! Other flooring options are not so durable, such as carpet which often needs to be replaced every 5 years due to stains and general wear and tear.

Cheaper to Maintain
Maintaining your wooden flooring is easy and all it takes is a simple sand and seal to get rid of any potential scratches or damages. On the other hand, refitting a new carpet is a lot more expensive.

Easy to Clean
Wooden floors only need to be swept or vacuumed regularly, and cleaning with a damp mop is enough to get rid of spillages and any mud carried into the house. Carpets are much more difficult to keep clean as they stain very easily.

More Hygienic
Wooden flooring is more hygienic than carpets, as carpeted flooring traps dust and plays host to parasites and even fleas. Real wood flooring is therefore a much better choice particularly for allergy sufferers or pet owner’s.

Nice aroma
As well as trapping dirt and dust, carpeted floors also lock in unpleasant odours from animals or spillages. Wooden floors are easy to mop and polish to keep them smelling fresh.

Works with underfloor heating
Wood provides a great medium to install underfloor heating. This is growing in popularity and is now viewed as the most efficient way to heat your house. Underfloor heating will also help you in selling your property further down the line.

Adds value to your property
According to estate agents, houses with real wood flooring sells twice as easily compared to houses with other floor finishes such as carpet or linoleum. It may cost more to install but there is no doubt that wooden flooring is an investment as it increases the value of your home.

Adds coziness and warmth to your home
Stone and tile floors are equally as hygienic and easy to maintain as wood however they do not have the same warm feel underfoot that timber floors have, creating a much cosier feel to your home.

It will never go out of style
Other flooring options go in and out of fashion, such as tile patterns and carpet colours. Hardwood flooring is timeless and is growing in popularity in recent years.

As you can see, real wood flooring has many benefits over other flooring options. The initial cost of installation can sometimes be more expensive but wooden floors are more economical in the long run and are definitely an investment as they add value to your property.
