Customers often come in to our showroom with a barrel load of questions about flooring. What flooring should I choose? Which is the cheapest type of flooring? What is the most durable type of flooring?
These questions are completely understandable. When it comes to choosing new floor, you are making one of the most important decisions you’re likely to face in the next decade; I say that because that’s how long you’ll be left to rue the consequences of any bad decision you take on the issue. No one wants to be reminded day after day about a bad decision they’ve made, but that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t select the right floor!
So Modish Furnishing is here to help make sure you make the right choice when it comes to your next floor! Here are some advantages of choosing Hardwood Flooring over the likes of carpet, laminate or vinyl…
Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood Flooring is easy to clean
There comes the dog, paws covered in mud, right onto the living room carpet… oh and there’s a child, carelessly and clumsily spilling blackcurrant juice all over that nice new cream rug.
Is this the kind of nightmare scenario that keeps you up at night? If it is, then maybe it’s high time you switched to Hardwood Flooring.
Hardwood Flooring is unbelievably easy to clean: it’s as simple as wiping it down or sweeping it up. No more stains, no more pet hair, no more worries!
Hardwood floors last longer
Hardwood floors are immune to common issues that plague, threaten and ruin floors and carpets in the modern family home. A hardwood floor will repel dirt, stains, dust, water and all the problems that come with them.
What would normally ruin a carpet is easy work for a hardwood floor!
When maintained correctly, a Hardwood Floor is capable of lasting a lifetime. This not only represents outstanding value for money, but also makes life a whole lot easier knowing you needn’t replace your existing floor once a decade!
Hardwood Floors are more Hygienic than Carpet
Lurking beneath every soft step on a carpet lies a filthy secret: hidden in amongst each and every fibre of your woven carpet are things like: bad smells, pollen, dust particles, dirt, germs and lord only knows what else.
These nasty little surprises get stuck in between the furry fibres of the carpet and can remain trapped for years if your carpet isn’t professionally treated regularly.
None of these issues affect a Hardwood Floor though, a little bit of TLC is all that’s needed and all of those pesky odours and dirt particles are gone!
Hardwood Flooring looks amazing
This point is more of a subjective one, but it’s difficult to disagree: nothing looks more impressive than a traditional wooden floor.
Hardwood floors create a comfortable and homely vibe, adding a timeless charm to any room. No other type of flooring can replicate the elegance afforded by a hardwood floor. It’s even well known among estate agents that houses are more desirable and easier to sell when they have hardwood floors!
A gift to the senses, hardwood floors feel great underfoot, look superb and bring a sophisticated wooden aroma to the home.
Hardwood Flooring is more versatile
The incredibly wide ranging variety of hardwood flooring is yet another reason it stands above its contemporaries.
Hardwood Flooring comes in many different styles, hues, stains and textures: giving you the ability to engineer your preferred style for your home.
So there you have it, the benefits of opting for Hardwood Flooring over a new carpet. As with anything there are downsides and no right or wrong answers. A carpet may be better suited for one person, while a hardwood floor may be the smarter choice for someone else.
