Three tips to know if hardwood flooring is for you

People love wood floors. They're elegant and add warmth, charm, and coziness to a room.

They're low maintenance and, with the hundreds of wood species available, there’s certainly a lot of looks from which to choose!

Here are some tips. They’ll help you decide if hardwood flooring is for you.

Tip # 1: Wood floors never go out of style

These floors are timeless. Periodically, there will be some updates to refresh, but they, too, are classic and will never go out of style.

For instance, random width layouts or herringbone patterns will always be significant players in hardwood flooring. Herringbone layouts have been around since the 1970s.

Tip #2: Hardwood flooring adds value to a property

Increasing property values is always a benefit whether you're selling or staying. In addition, studies have shown that people enjoy their homes much more after a hardwood floor installation.

You'll recoup 70% to 80% of the initial cost, reflected in your property values. So, theoretically, a home once valued at $300K becomes $315K or more.

People often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors if you plan to sell.

Tip #3: Wood flooring is cost-effective

When wood floors look worn, dull, or excessively scratched, refinishing is usually all it takes to bring them back to luster. This is so for any version, whether solid or engineered.
