Are hardwood floors difficult to maintain?
-Hardwood floors are actually the easiest floors of
all to maintain. A routine sweep and mop with our recommended
floor care kit is all you
need for a lifetime of beautiful floors.
What about installing hardwood floors in Kitchens
- Hardwood floors perform great in the kitchen and in
half baths. We don't recommend the installation of hardwood in a full bath
due to the amount of water. Due to the cushioning effect hardwood floors
have, they are excellent in a kitchen where one would be standing in one
place for a length of time.
Hardwood floors are too expensive!
- Actually, the cost of an installed and finished
hardwood floor is not much more than the cost of other hard surfaces such as
tile. Furthermore according to the
National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) & Residential real estate
agents, say homes with wood floors hold their value better, sell faster, and
fetch higher prices, according to a recent nationwide survey commissioned by
the trade organization. By a three-to-one margin, real estate agents
said that a house with wood floors would sell faster than a carpeted house.
Some 58 percent said a house with wood floors would bring a higher price.
Hardwood floors never have to be replaced and will enhance or even increase
the value of your home should you decide to sell. When compared to
other flooring products, hardwood floors provide long-lasting value, as Real
Wood Floors are "Beauty that last a lifetime".
Which species and stain should I choose?
- There are several species, colors and grain
variations to consider. Other than the walls, the floor represents the
largest expanse of color or pattern in a room. Your floor should work well
in the space and not dominate the room. Other then the walls the floor is
the largest area of color and pattern in the room. Your floor should
complement the fabrics, furnishings and accessories already present in the
room. The most popular floor type and color is a natural red oak, maple
natural running second. Darker colors - Formal or traditional interiors,
Lighter colors - country, casual and contemporary settings.
