If your home is a hectic one, you’ll know just how difficult it can be to keep everything clean- especially carpets. When your house is home to a large family, carpets can be subjected to a huge amount of wear and tear- and this can leave them in very bad condition very quickly. This is why more and more of those living in hectic homes are opting for tough hardwood flooring.
The days where there were very few hardwood flooring choices, and when you may have had to have settled for flooring which wasn’t quite as durable as you’d have liked are now firmly in the past, as there are now several really durable options.
Ash, hard maple and Jabota are all incredibly durable choices, with beech and oak also being able to withstand a good amount of foot traffic.
Whatever your hardwood flooring choice though, you shouldn’t expect your flooring to be able to completely fend for itself, as it does also need to be properly maintained. In busy homes, it’s also a good idea to protect really vulnerable areas with mats and rugs. This will go a very long way in keeping it as pristine as possible.
