A classic hardwood floor creates a warm decor, and it also feels good under your feet. Most homeowners and buyers will agree that wood floors are beautiful and much more attractive than tile or carpet. The neutral look of wood makes it easier to match furniture with it than with carpet. You aren't locked into matching the color of the flooring. The neutral quality of wood becomes extra valuable when you are redecorating a room and can increase the value of your home.
Hardwood floors are resilient and long-lasting. They are easy to clean and maintain. While spills and stains on a light-colored carpet can be a disaster, on a hardwood floor you can simply wipe them away. You can sweep or vacuum a wood floor anytime without damaging it or wearing it out.
If you or your family members have allergies, you will really appreciate that wood floors don’t trap dust and irritants the way carpets do. Once you sweep or vacuum, you’ll know just by looking at your floorboards that they are clean and dust-free.
