Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
Choosing a flooring solution for your home is a commitment of time and finances, so knowing the benefits of a material such as hardwood and the style options is an important piece of the process. In recent years, more homeowners have been turning towards hardwood flooring for their homes because of the classic look and ease of maintenance. While tile and carpet both have their benefits, installing hardwood flooring offers a strong, durable solution that not only can add value to your home, but it can also improve air quality within your home. Hardwood flooring does not see fading in color like what is seen in some carpeting. In fact, if you did decide to one day change the color, hardwood flooring can be refinished. That means instead of buying and installing new flooring, refinishing gives the current flooring a facelift and the ability to drastically change the appearance of a room without the cost and time of a complete installation.
Types of Hardwood Flooring
Hickory flooring is known to be a durable option with a rustic look. It can withstand a lot of foot traffic and is a good option if you have pets. Its natural beige to brown to red color and distressed look is complemented by a strong knotted grain pattern and texture.
For spaces looking for a more subtle grain pattern that works well in both large and small spaces, Maple is a beautiful choice for your next central Texas hardwood flooring project. Maple floors tend to have a darker look and is extremely hard, meaning it is great for high trafficked areas with kids or pets. Think of the flooring that makes the lanes on a bowling alley, that is generally maple and can withstand a lot of wear.
Although Walnut is a softer wood favored more in a low-trafficked area, they have a luxurious aesthetic and elegance which makes them a popular candidate as a hardwood floor. The wide, consistent grain patterns and color variants make it a species of wood which can match any style of room.
Growing abundantly throughout the US, the Birch tree is an affordable option for bringing hardwood flooring into your central Texas space. While less expensive than Maple, it holds similar characteristics in grain and color. This is a great option for a low-trafficked area.
Currently the most common type of wood flooring, Oak is an affordable hardwood flooring option that is also very durable. In addition, oak flooring is an ideal candidate for sanding and refinishing, meaning they can be restored back to looking new without a complete installation and for minimal cost. It is like installing a floor that will last a lifetime and can be changed easily through applying a stain. It is also resistant to expansion and contraction which, in other hardwood, causes gaps and warping.
