What are the Benefits of Hardwood Flooring at Home?

Thinking about installing hardwood flooring in your home? More and more homeowners are turning to hardwood floors because they’re easy to clean and maintain, and they offer a sense of sophistication. If your goal is to make your home look richer in one project, wood flooring is the answer.

While there are many great flooring options on the market, there are some things that wood flooring does best. This post covers the top features about hardwood and why you might want to pick this flooring over others.

Enhance the Look of Your Home

Without a doubt, hardwood flooring adds a touch of elegance to the home while keeping it warm and inviting. Many of our customers even say that hardwood opens up their space and makes their rooms look bigger! If this is the look you’re going for, we recommend installing hardwood throughout your first floor.

Easy to Take Care Of

Taking care of hardwood flooring is easy. At least once a week, sweep or vacuum your floors to pick up dirt, crumbs and pet hair. You can also damp mop your floors with a well wrung out mop. If you skip a week of cleaning, it’s no big deal.

Strong and Durable

Solid hardwood is strong and durable, making it a great option for busy households with kids and pets. While they can scratch and dent, it’s not easy to do. If you spill something, wipe it up right away to prevent moisture. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about stains. If your floors do take a beating, they can be refinished over and over again.

Increase Property Value

According to, hardwood flooring can boost the sale price of your home by 2.5%. Buyers expect move-in ready homes, so it makes sense to upgrade worn carpets and faded vinyl with solid hardwood. You’ll get your investment back and sell your house for more!

Improve Indoor Air Quality

For those who suffer from allergies or asthma, hardwood flooring offers another benefit: it's hypoallergenic. Unlike carpet, hardwood floors do not trap dust, animal dander, pollen or other common allergens. These floors also lack grout lines or embossing, which can also trap allergens.

Hardwood flooring is a great choice for modern homes, and it’s something that prospective buyers often ask about and it's easy to install. To discuss your options for hardwood flooring available in a wide range of species, contact Woodhaven today.
