Wood flooring provides a timeless and classic look to any home. Here at Just Wood we are experts at making, installing and updating hardwood floors. We know the benefits of this type of flooring compared to others and we want to share them with you.

Long Lasting
One of the main benefits of wood flooring is that it is long lasting. We not only sell new wood flooring but we also renovate old floors. With a little TLC wood floors that were laid decades ago are still perfectly useable and durable. If you invest in a wooden floor then you are in fact saving yourself money as you won’t have to replace it every few years as you would carpet or linoleum.

Ease of Cleaning
Another great benefit of having wood flooring in your home is the ease of cleaning it. Unlike carpets, wood floors don’t hold onto dust and hair, so a quick sweep or a vacuum will keep them clean. Occasionally they may need a mop if they become grubby, but this is quick and easy to do. Much easier to clean than if a carpet was muddy.

Timeless Look
Wooden floors are never going to go out of style. They have a classic appeal that, though it provides a traditional look, also has a fresh feel. So if you invest in wood floors you won’t be regretting it in a few years as you may if you purchase carpets. Remember the swirly brown carpets of the seventies? They quickly went out of date. But with wood floors your house will always look stylish and never dated.

Healthy Flooring
Unlike carpets, wood flooring does not hold dust particles and parasites, which can aggravate allergies. Therefore, a hardwood floor is much healthier than a carpeted floor, especially for allergy sufferers.

Add Value
It’s been proven that well fitted hardwood floors add value to a home. So, if you plan to sell your house, having wood floors instead of carpet should get you more money. This is because wooden floors are not only more attractive than carpets but they’re also easier to clean and change if the new owner wants to.

Change Your Flooring
Finally, if you get bored of your existing hardwood floors then you don’t have to spend a lot of money changing or replacing them. You can simply sand and varnish them a different shade. This makes wood flooring incredibly versatile and adaptable to suit different decors and tastes.
