Coles believes that hardwood flooring accentuates any décor and adds a special touch of elegance whether your style is contemporary or traditional. The timeless appeal and beauty of quality hardwood floors enhances your furnishings and allows you to create the ambiance you desire whether you’re going for a warm comfortable atmosphere or a smooth contemporary feeling. With simple maintenance, you can enjoy stunning hardwood floors that will retain their elegance and appeal through the years.
Thanks to durable finishes that are easy to repair, wood floors can last for a hundred years or more. There are very few flooring materials that have been around as long as wood. Over the centuries, it has shown itself to be a lovely and durable floor choice. Other newer materials have yet to prove themselves.
Not only is hardwood more pleasant to walk on than laminates, but it is naturally warm. Wood is an excellent insulator, thanks to its thousands of tiny air chambers per cubic inch, which hold in heat.
Got allergies? Unlike carpets wood floors don’t give pollen, animal dander, mold any place to hide and thrive. Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for anyone with any kind of environmental allergies.
Easy to Clean
A little sweeping and mopping, and your hardwood floors will keep looking nice for a long time to come. Even families with dogs and kids are realizing that it’s easier to mop a hardwood floor than try to spray/scrub/wash stains out of a carpet. Another perk is that a scratch here or a gouge there really just adds character to wood floors.
Increase Home Value
Unless you’re going to be living in the same house for the rest of your life, you should think about how the flooring choices you make today will affect the price you can get for your home when you sell it. Carpet tends to look old and used in just a few years, whereas wood floors last a long time and add value to a home. Even laminate flooring, which looks like wood flooring, is a distant second choice for homebuyers. It just doesn’t have the same warmth and feel.
When you begin to see what is available in today’s marketplace for quality hardwood flooring, you’ll be amazed at the incredible choices in colors, wood grains, board widths, and different types of wood. One of the best features of choosing the wood floors that appeal most to you and your family is the uniqueness of your choice.
