Hardwood Flooring Benefits
Homeowners want hardwood floors for their natural durability and beauty. The rich color of hardwood lends to several different home décor styles. Kennys Carpet One Floor & Home in Carmel, NY carries a wide selection of hardwood options. We have the experts available to you in our showroom that can help you plan your budget around a hardwood floor and also design them around your home.
We know you are wary of the initial investment hardwood requires, but we can promise you it’ll be worth it. You hardwood floors will last a long time when properly maintained, and they even add value where you didn’t know they could. Hardwood floors are easy to clean but do require regular maintenance. If you have a home prone to allergies, hardwood may be for you because of its hypo allergenic qualities, and how it does not allow dust and other allergens to be trapped.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Hardwood is a tough and durable floor, but it does have its limitations. If you choose a solid hardwood floor, be sure to install it in places like bedrooms and living rooms, where it still can be seen but does not see as much action. Engineered hardwood floors are a little more versatile and can be installed in kitchens, basements, entryways and even hallways.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in places with a lot of heat and moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
When it comes to selecting hardwood floors, there are a variety of choices to compare. Different species of hardwood differ in strength and color, so if you need a floor to stand up to heavy foot traffic or children and pets, choose a more solid type of hardwood. You can even choose between unfinished and finished hardwood for a customized look. The biggest decision with hardwood is choosing engineered vs. solid hardwood, both of which have beneficial characteristics such as refinishing.
Solid hardwood features a uniform construction. It adds character and style to any room it is installed in. You should really only install solid hardwood flooring in one and above level rooms of your home. Engineered hardwood features a modern, layered construction. This construction makes engineered hardwood more stable and resistant to the natural tendency of wood to react to changes in weather and humidity.
