If you’re planning some work on your home this year, the first thing I would recommend is getting wooden floors. I have had them in my home for a long while, and I can’t endorse them highly enough! Here are some of the main reasons why I swear by hardwood floors, and why you should too.
It seems an obvious point to make, but I love how durable hardwood floors are. When I do work on my home, I want things to last years. I don’t have the time or the money to be replacing or repairing things all the time. And that’s why wooden floors are the way to go. They are durable, long-lasting and strong. Choosing the perfect hardwood floors for you and your place should be simple.
Don’t you just love that echoey sound that wooden floors make when you walk across them? I do. In fact, it’s one of my favorite sounds in the world. It just sounds so right to me. I love the feel and sound of my floors, and I love the way they look. Sleek, glamorous and unspoiled. Hardwood floors are the pinnacle of residential flooring, and I can’t think of a better surface to cover my home.
As a busy housewife, I don’t want to be worrying about clearing up mess all the time. And this is a major drawback to having carpet. The slightest mess or spillage becomes a huge problem and has to be tended to immediately. With wooden flooring, I have none of these problems. I don’t have to beat myself up over issues of staining and dirt. The floors are simple to clean and easy to preserve. And this frees me up to get on with the important things in life.
Hardwood flooring is surprisingly versatile as a material. By this, I mean that it looks equally at home in a modern place or a more old-fashioned one. And this has maybe highlighted its appeal. The fact that it’s so versatile means you can use it no matter what home you have, and it will still add something to it.
My favourite thing about hardwood floors is how modern they look. Yes, they complement retro places as well. But they just look so good in modern surroundings. It’s something to do with their simplicity and elegance. I can’t imagine my place having any material other than wood for the floors now. If you don’t believe me, then go to someone’s house who has wooden floors and see how awesome it looks!
I think one of the reasons I love wooden flooring so much is the amount of money it’s saved me. Sure, I had to spend money to get the hardwood floors installed. But since then it has saved me a lot of cash. They are durable, so I don’t have to worry about paying for upkeep and maintenance. There’s no carpet to have to relay, repair or clean. The home is much better off for it, and I save valuable pennies.
My home is very important to me, so I like to make it as great as I possibly can. And one of the best ways for me to do this is with hardwood flooring. I got it years ago in my old place, and now I swear by it. I don’t think I could go back to carpet after years of enjoying wooden floors. If you don’t believe me, you should try it for yourself!
