What You Probably Never Knew About Denver Hardwood Flooring


September 12, 2018

Most people know one thing about Denver hardwood flooring: It looks beautiful in a home. Hardwood flooring is elegant and timeless; it is a flooring type that never goes out of style.
Despite its beauty, hardwood flooring might not be for everyone or every home. But there are a few things you should know about it that might help you make the decision.

Hardwood Flooring Will Increase the Value of Your Home

When many people are deciding on the type of flooring to install in their home, they are probably not thinking about a time in the future when they’ll decide to sell the property and move. But since most people stay in their home for an average of 13 years—according to the National Association of Home Builders—it’s not a bad idea to consider resale when you install new flooring.
If you ask any real estate agent, they will likely tell you that homebuyers deliberately seek out homes with hardwood flooring. This means you’ll be able to charge more money for your home when it’s time to sell it.

Hardwood Flooring Can Be Repaired and Refinished

One of the reasons for hardwood flooring’s timeless popularity is because it can be repaired and refinished over the years; it doesn’t need to be replaced like so many other types of flooring. If there are dings and scratches in the wood, or if it starts to look dull over the years from normal wear and tear, the floor can be restored to its original beauty.
The process is a relatively simple one: The original finish will be sanded off to make the surface smooth again. Then refinishing will take place to give it that beautiful glossy look.

Hardwood Flooring Comes in a Variety of Sizes and Colors

Although thinner wood planks have been popular in the past, today’s hardwood flooring comes in a wide variety of widths and sizes. When you are ready to install hardwood flooring in your home, you get to decide on the type of wood, the color of the wood, the width of the planks, and what kind of finish you would like. For instance, a dark hardwood with wide planks looks much different from a blond hardwood with narrow planks. You can truly fit one to fit your taste as well as the style of your home.
