Why WOODn’t you? – Why real wood flooring is an excellent investment
Posted on 10th March 2014
When it comes to durable flooring, there is little better than real wood. A traditional real wood floor adds a touch of class and permanence to the interior décor of any location. However, the benefits of real wood flooring expand beyond the traditional, giving aesthetic and practical assets to all interiors.
Easy to clean and maintain
Real wood floors are both easy and simple to clean. They do not collect a lot of dust, or dirt, and real wood doesn’t take on stains or smells like a carpet does, so it’s far easier to keep clean. A simple brush or a light vacuum will keep your wooden floors looking fresh, whilst a mop can easily deal with any more stubborn muck that might be caused by a child or pet.
Real wood flooring offers an ageless quality that other flooring does not. Wooden flooring requires minimum maintenance to retain its natural beauty and with the right love and care, your real wood flooring will last a lifetime. Should scratches or dents occur, it can easily be refinished to restore its former glory. When other floors will begin to look tired and worn, your real wood floors will still look beautiful and can become more valuable as time goes by.
Affordable and desirable
Real wood flooring is considered a good investment in the value of a property. Not only does it increase property value, but it is also proven to cause a house to be sold quicker than those without real wood flooring.
Even though real wood flooring has this perception of being highly expensive, it can now be very affordable and available within most budgets. It still gives your interior décor a rich look that improves over time due to aging, rather than deteriorating. Real wood flooring is known for its durability and can easily last a lifetime.
If after a few years your wood floor has been scratched or is a bit damaged due to heavy wear and tear. A simple sand and seal will bring it back to new again. This is a lot less costly than refitting a new carpet.
Yes, real wood flooring even has health benefits over other flooring types.
Real wood is the healthiest flooring material available, recommended by doctors and leading health associations for use within the home. Real wood attracts less dust than other flooring types and thus they do not attract allergens, or moulds that cause allergies which tend to travel with dust. Real wood has the advantage over other flooring types of having no place for these irritants to hide in, making real wood flooring a perfect choice for those with allergies or young children.
In summary, real wood flooring is a practical investment for any interior décor. Whether for a new build or a home refurbishment, real wood flooring adds a wide range of benefits.
