Hardwood Flooring is the Best Investment
The experts agree – hardwood flooring is the way to go. Hardwood flooring instantly enhances the look of any room in a house and can be tailored to suit any kind of décor, be it classic or contemporary. Installing hardwood flooring also makes the floor easy to maintain, with only occasional wood floor repairs needed, while real estate agents believe that houses with hardwood flooring also tend to sell quicker and for more money than houses with carpets or tiled flooring. Hardwood flooring can even be better for your health, with recent studies proving that other forms of flooring harbour mould, dust mites and toxins, which do not get “trapped” in hardwood floors.
“Hardwood floors are environmentally friendly, forever fashionable and will last for generations” says Pembroke Jacobs, President of the Hardwood Manufacturers Association. The Association may be based in the United States, but the reliability and appeal of hardwood flooring extends all over the world, including the United Kingdom. “Plus, with an expected life span of more than a hundred years for certain premium hardwood flooring, you can be assured that the hardwood really is a one time investment with a very long term pay off.” The most popular kind of hardwood floors are still the classics – mahogany and oak – but many householders are starting to get a little more exotic, investing in hardwood flooring made from bamboo and Brazilian cherry.
Being relatively inexpensive as well as attractive and durable, hardwood floors may well be the best investment for your home you could make.
