For centuries, hardwood flooring has always been the standard of beauty and elegance. It provides comfort during cold winters and remain cool during hot summers. Hardwood floors give a home a very warm and cozy feel and are timeless and elegant. Hardwood it a robust material that adds structural and monetary value for any home where it’s installed. Hardwood provides a good selling point if you ever decide to put your property in the market.

Hardwood planks may come a bit pricey compared to other flooring materials but its worth the investment considering the value you are getting for your money.

Aside from being a naturally durable material - note: durable not indestructible, hardwood is more popular because of its aesthetic qualities. The wide array of species to choose from to unique grain patterns, distinct shades which can be stained to suit your preference.

In terms of sustainability, it is more environmentally sound to choose hardwood flooring in the long run because of its sturdy structure. Given proper care, hardwood floors can last for well over a century. The key is getting the materials from responsible sellers, farmed and logged as regulated by law.

How to choose the appropriate hardwood material for your home?

As with all other home improvement ideas, there is no absolute rule on how to choose the appropriate hardwood specie for your home. There are things to consider before placing your order. Here are some basic hardwood flooring tips on how to choose the appropriate hardwood flooring for your home.

Plan where you want to have the hardwood flooring. Think of the amount of moisture the area receives, the footfall and what possible equipments or furnishings might do harm to your hardwood floor. It wont hurt to check out the Janka Hardness Scale, just to give you an idea.

Color and texture is also another factor to consider. Some consider natural color variations as beautiful others prefer a more solid or unified look which is achieved by adding color stains which can be replaced when the floor is refinshed. The same holds true for grains. Others find the texture authentic and attractive, others however find them annoying and too busy.

I chose hardwood floors for my kitchen, living room and bedroom. They look great and the apartment is definitely cozier. And last but not least - hardwood floors are very easy to clean and maintain. And if you put a rug on top - that's what I call HOME!

I think that nothing looks better in the living or dinning room than a hardwood floor. Carpet is ok, but if You want to have the house elegant I think wood is the thing. http://optimamoving.com
