Why People Are Using Denver Hardwood in Their Kitchens


July 25, 2018

If you ask any real estate agent, he or she will likely agree that hardwood flooring is one of the most popular flooring choices homebuyers are seeking—and that includes people wanting Denver hardwood in the kitchen. There are plenty of reasons for this.

Hardwood Flooring Is Comfortable

It’s a fact that hardwood flooring is simply easier on your feet than tile. This can be a welcome benefit if you spend a lot of time on your feet in the kitchen.
Hardwood flooring is also warmer. This is especially important during those cold days we experience in a Colorado winter. Tile absorbs the heat from your feet, and it just feels colder than hardwood floors.

Hardwood Flooring Is Stylish

As mentioned above, hardwood flooring is in style and homeowners love it. You can check out all of those home improvement and home flipping shows on television to see just how accurate that is! This article from the professionals at HGTV provides a list of their favorite types of hardwood floors.
Hardwood Flooring Can Make Small Spaces Look Larger
It’s fairly common for hardwood flooring to be in family rooms and living rooms, and if you continue the hardwood into the kitchen, this will present a cohesive look that will make your home seem larger.

Hardwood Flooring Is Durable

Unlike tile floors, which can crack and chip, hardwood floors are long-lasting. If you drop a large pot or pan on a tile floor, there is a good chance it will sustain some damage. If you drop the same item on your hardwood floor, there might be a mark, but this can be buffed out fairly easily—especially if you get the floors refinished at some point. You can expect your hardwood floors to last for decades.

Hardwood Flooring Is Easy to Keep Clean

If you have ever had tile flooring, you have probably felt frustrated by the dirt that collects in the grout between the tiles. This problem doesn’t exist with hardwoods. With regular mopping or vacuuming, your floors stay beautiful looking.

Hardwood Flooring Is Appealing to a Wide Variety of People

If you ever want to sell your home, hardwood flooring has a wider appeal for potential buyers. If potential buyers want a different shade of hardwood floor, it’s a fairly simple process to change the color with refinishing. The same cannot be said for tile floors, and homebuyers who don’t share your taste might end up having to rip out the tiles completely.
