Real Wood Floor in Hallway Makes Good First Impression
Having a real wood floor in your hallway can help make a great and lasting first impression of your home. Real wood floors also help to add value to a home, and while many people tend to neglect the hallway due to it being such a small area of the house, the entrance gives a particular impact that the right choice of flooring can help to emphasise, something which is particularly important for those who are looking to sell their house.
As well as being attractive and durable, hardwood floors are very easy and relatively inexpensive to add personal touches to, something else that increases their value and desirability in the eyes of a potential house buyer as anyone thinking of occupying your home will inevitably wish to add their own personality to the house. While other forms of décor can be difficult to modify without extensive redecoration, a real wood floor is both simple to change and also adds a certain class to the hallway.
A good strong wood floor also means that the cost of maintenance will be kept down, as there will be less need for regular wood floor repairs, and may never even require replacing in your lifetime, unlike carpet. Cleaning a wooden floor is also far easier and less expensive than having to clean carpets. A simple mop and bucket of soapy water will be enough to keep a wood floor clean, while carpets require steam cleaning and stain removal products.
