Get a Luxury Look in Your Home with Solid Wood Flooring

Posted by willowsonflooring on March 4th, 2013

Flooring is without a doubt one of the most important parts of a room. It can be a great focal point in the home. It should be functional but also offer style to a room. Hardwood flooring is a great way to add a luxurious look to your home.

There are a variety of different types of flooring options available. Carpet and tile are options that some consider, but solid wood flooring is the perfect way to add a little (or lot of) luxury to any home. Wooden flooring tends to be the focal point of a home because of the natural patterns and colours.

In the past, hardwood flooring was a luxury because the alternative was a dirt floor for the bottom floor of a home. The wealthy, and eventually working class, opted for hardwood flooring on the bottom floor because it was not only luxurious, it also functioned much better than the alternative.

Today, hardwood flooring is mostly used to give that ‘wow’ factor to a home. It offers durability as well as aesthetics and is available in a wide variety of colours and styles. Good quality hardwood flooring will last a century or more. When wear starts to show, the floor can simply be refinished and look as good as new again.

Hardwood flooring adds a charm to just about any room it is put in. The drawback to installing hardwood flooring is that it can’t be put in places where there is a lot of moisture. Kitchens and bathrooms are not the best places to put hardwood flooring because water can build up underneath it and cause it to rot. However, for the rest of the home, hardwood flooring adds a look of luxury that is second to none.

Laminate flooring can be a great way to add a bit of luxury while spending less money. This type of flooring doesn’t last as long as solid wood flooring, but it does also give a ‘wow’ factor to a room. Laminate flooring can withstand more moisture and it is a more affordable option to install in your home.
