Hardwood flooring versus carpet flooring
Hardwood flooring has always been a symbol of exotic home décor. Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for any home.
Here are some advantages of hardwood flooring over carpet flooring
Longevity: Hardwood flooring can last for a really long time. Other materials have not been so durable and strong. Hard woods, especially oak, stand the test of time.
Sensitivity: Laminates and other flooring materials give a cold feeling beneath your feet. Hardwood is naturally warmer than laminates. Wood holds heat for longer and this makes it ideal for flooring.
No breeding ground: People with allergies can be safer with hardwood flooring as they do not capture these things as carpets do.
Cleaning and maintenance: Wood floors are easier to mop and sweep. They are also easier to maintain than laminate floorings as they require a lot of scrubbing and washing.
When you have plans to stay in a house for long time, you must go for wood flooring. Any scratches or marks from pets and kids do not affect the aesthetics of the floor, as they can be polished and covered. Hardwood floorings give an exquisite look to your house.
