Hardwood floors are quite beloved by their owners since no two are exactly alike and they look both earthy and elegant at the same time. Perhaps their biggest selling point is their durability. Wooden floors typically last for as long as you own a home and then some… it’s not unusual to encounter wooden floors in New York City residences from many generations ago. Not only are they durable, but they’re easy to clean as well. Simply sweep and mop hardwood floors. Carpeting needs to be replaced three to six times before most hardwood floors ever need repairing, so wood floors are easier to own and maintain over the years.

When people look for a place to move to, homes having hardwood floors increase the chances that they’ll like the place and consider buying it. Simply put, hardwood floors help increase a home’s value. Wooden floors also make it easy for “the new people” to decorate the place, since so many pieces of furniture and home décor go well with wooden floors.

Unlike things like shag carpeting, hardwood floors never go out of style. Today, there are many different finishes and colors to choose from, so you can find a style that you like, from lighter maple to more exotic Midnight Oak, which is nearly black. If and when the color fades over the years, just refinish the floors.

For those who suffer with allergies, wooden floors work better than carpeting, which traps allergens. Wood is allergen-free, and should a pet get their dander on it, mop it up and you’re good-to-go.

Finally, hardwood floors come from the natural environment. Wood is a renewable resource. Buying wooden floors actually helps put money into the wood industry, ensuring that more trees get planted for future generations.
