At Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta, we help families in the greater Buckhead, Atlanta, Midtown area find their dream floors. For many Atlanta residents, that is hardwood. You can find it everywhere these days, which should come as no surprise if you know about the many benefits of hardwood. Here are three reasons why we love hardwood:
1. It is gorgeous and works with any aesthetic.
Because of the tremendous variety in hardwood species, widths, and finishes, hardwood can be utilized in any home, from a classic Craftsman to a distinguished Victorian. Wide plank white oak is a great choice for modern homes because of its subtle grain lines and subdued color. It makes spaces feel light and airy. For a rustic cabin, hickory is a great choice. With it’s dramatic coloration, it is sure to add authenticity to your home.
2. It is durable and low-maintenance.
Hardwood flooring is tough and built to last. With simple upkeep, your hardwood floors can easily last for generations. This is especially true for woods with a high Janka rating, such as oak, maple, and mahogany. Weekly maintenance includes simple sweeping and vacuuming. Every few years, hardwood can be polished or refinished to restore some of its luster.
3. It’s sustainable.
Hardwood is a natural flooring material. It is sustainably grown and harvested from trees. Most of the oak flooring we sell is grown in the United States. So when you choose sustainable oak hardwood, you are directly contributing to the American economy.
