What Benefits Can Real Wood Flooring Bring to a Property?
When it comes to flooring, there are a wide range of different options: carpets, vinyl and laminates to name but a few. However when it comes to adding real class to a property, nothing beats a traditional real wood floor.
Wood floors have looked good in houses for almost as long as there have been houses, and can suit a wide range of decors. Other flooring like carpets and vinyl only look good when specifically tailored to the rest of the room and have a definite fashion lifespan.
It’s not just a matter of taste though, there are many practical benefits to a having a real wood floor over other kinds of flooring:
The biggest benefit of a quality real wooden floor has to be longevity as it can be something of an investment. Despite an increased initial outlay versus other types of flooring, it is soon outweighed by the fact that a wooden floor can last for years, if not decades without wearing out; much longer than a less rugged carpet, that will more than likely need to be replaced long before it wears out anyway by virtue of becoming stained or dated.
Speaking of cleaning, a wooden floor not only needs to be cleaned less than a carpet, but wood doesn’t take on stains or smells like a carpet does, so it’s far easier to keep clean. Everyone owns a mop, far fewer people own an expensive specialised carpet shampooer.
Still, even a clean carpet can harbour pet hair, pollen and other allergens. A wood floor has the advantage of having no pile for these irritants to hide in, making wood flooring a perfect choice for those with children and/or pet or pollen allergies.
On top of this, even though wood flooring has the perception of being highly expensive, these days it can be quite affordable. This is thanks to an increase in demand and advances in production methods. Wood flooring is also available in a range of styles and designs thanks to us here at Wood Floor Surbiton as experienced suppliers of wood flooring in Guildford and the surrounding areas.
